DIY plastidip your emblems.

Pics of my buddys g37 with plastidipped emblems

Pictures pretty much speak for themselves..

1. Tape off a square around your emblem, then use papaer to cover from over spray.

2. Apply 3-4 even coats.

3. Remove tape and paper.

4. Grab a edge of the plastidip (No need to cut around the emblem the plastidip will stick to the emblem and peal off around it leaving your emblem black and paint untouched.)

5. Enjoy

Don't believe me? Try it yourself. When I first saw the stuff I didnt believe it either, but when we tried his we thought we would have to cut around each letter, but it came off as clean as it could without. plastidip is very durable when its on the vehicle, when you start to peal it, it becomes very brittle, the sudden change in angle allows it to tear easily. Your truck may be different so I guess keep a knife handy and take your time but its very simple and easy to do.

Heres a link for the skeptics.
