Default More Vinyl Yipee!

So got more of my front bumper done and I think it looks better, the emblem was tinted with a dark tint which I don't like and he plans to order and do it over for me. I did the back chrome piece and now it looks weird cause the chrome emblems, should I black them out or plasti-dip them.

Looking good bigblack... The 4th pic really makes the front resemble the Predator. Plasti dip the emblems but the gloss black would contrast better because you have the gloss in front. TJM.

That looks great! I'm still contemplating painting vs wrapping because no one has a wrap close to NG that I want for my LP.

I think u should leave the emblem chrome for contrast. At least that's why I'm leaving mine.

Yes your car was the one that made me think about plasti-dip.

Yeah, I'm leaving that for last choice. I really want to try the plasti-dip and glossifier and see if that will work if not it can be taken off.

With it being there I think it looks weird. I have thought about it though, may take the tint off the front emblem in the end.

I just realized I did not take good pics while I had it. I took it off to redo it but never got around to it again.
