Lower Valance Painting?

Hey guys im new to this site. I have a red 2004 v6 mustang. Previously had the black valance decal from american muscle, but that fell off in the car wash. Looked great but it pealed easily. I was looking to make it a little more permanent and actually paint it... Has anyone here done it? Hows it look? And what were the steps you did from prep to finish? Thanks guys

All you have to do is mask it off and spray.

Mines stayed on also. The only problem you'll have is if someone hits your bumper with there car like someone did to me on New Years-.-

I'm sorry to hear your Decal fell off. Was the service clean, no wax etc.. before install? Either way, I can send you another decal if you'd like or you could go with the Plasti Dip option. Either way, I'm sure you'll be good to go!

I hope this helps. Let me know if you have any questions or need some assistance!

-Dan
