DIY - Personalized Emblem (plasti dip)

If your looking to add some uniqueness to the ride or just wan to see what it'll look like before you purchase a pair of blacked out emblems.

Tools needed:
Paper
painters tape
scissors
razor
Plasti Dip

Step 1:
cut a rectangle in the paper a little larger than the emblem size and tape it to the car



Step 2:
place tape over the "Point", press it into the corners and use a razor or shape knife to cut.



Step 3:
Paint. 1st coat get a 50/50 coverage and the 2-3 more wet coats after that. allow about 2-3 mins between coats.



Step 4:
Remove tape from "Point" immediately after last coat is laid. This will allow for a nice straight cut around the point without having to worry about pulling up the plasti dip around the area.



Step 5: (if you have a vinyl overlay for the point)
place overlay in point and you are done...almost



Step 6: clean up
Clean up any over spray by rubbing it with a micro fiber towel.

Great little write up, however tons of heartache could be avoided by using a much larger piece of newspaper for the masking. This would avoid the overspray al over the fender and door that will be thin little patchy blobs of dip that someone will have to clean off. On a black car especially, this clean up could cause scratching or swirls.

Just thought I'd throw that out there in case someone uses this as their bible when attempting this.

Great write up. I did the same thing on my car. I was my first time plasti -dipping anything and I was amazed how easy it was to do. It actually feels good peeling it off and watching how it breaks away at the edges so neatly.

Don't be lazy with preparation. It makes clean up 100% easier and faster.
