Best $20 Mod Ever!!

Found this guy on EBay selling molded abs plastic painted pony covers. Color matches the car and sticks right on with supplied 3m tape. Fits perfectly. What do you think?

I don't mean to rain on your parade or anything but why not just red plastidip it for less than half the price and not having to wait for shipping? WITHOUT any residue when you decide to take it off. Regardless it still looks cool.

No rain on my parade. It's always sunny down in south Florida! Truthfully, I can appreciate Plastidip, but it doesn't come in Red Candy Metallic. This thing looks pretty oem, especially for $20

Very nice bro. Looks nice. I do prefer the factory chrome color, however the painted pony cover looks nice. I think the white painted pony cover would have looked awesome with your red car.

Thanks! Almost went with white, but I think I'm going to do red/black. Got my 5.0's black, getting my vents and rims painted and maybe the spoiler, if I don't delete it

Sweet ride you got. Since you showed me your pony cover I really like the white for my car , perhaps even more than my chrome now. think I'm going to have to spend $20 because of you, thanks. Lol. I think the white will go with my color and stripping.

Thanks guys. Found him/her. They don't have black. And no. I don't want to plasti dip. I've done that in the past. Sucks. Only thing chrome on. My car is the running pony. But don't know about paying 60 for the other black ones. Wish they were easier to pop on and off. Always kinda wanted this air brushed on mine.

Didn't last long when I used it previous. I basically plastidipped my whole car at one point. Just looks better painted IMO. I changed out all my emblems for flat black ones except the pony because it usually runs about 60. And I keep telling myself for 60 plus shipping. I'll just sand it down and paint mine black one day. But for 20. Well. I can spare 20.

That's the only thing I didn't try. But I've heard great stories. Hell. Venomous painted his whole car and it turned out looking really good.
