Default Plastidip my emblem rear

Hats up guys I know this has been talked about a lot today I finally decided to plastidip my rear emblems. I feel like it came out pretty good for my first time. I thinking about doing the front to what do you guys think.

Well of course I would think it looks good. Looks just like the rear of my car! Good job.

I agree a lot of people are doing it. I'm hoping the silver metalizer is a little different than the matte black everyone I see is doing. I even thought of doing Anthrocite with silver metalizer. We will see this weekend.

Good job. Looks good.

Might as well do the front to match the rear.

Do you like it better than the matte black? Can't really see from the pic. Nice vanity plate! My silver metalizer will be here today (hope it doesn't look like glitter haha)

On my car, yes since my wheels and grill are that color. I wanted it to match all around. If you want me to shoot a close up of just the emblem I can.

Thanks on the plate. I don't know how to blob out the numbers. I figure I live in the auto theft capitol of the world. WTH if you guys see my plate?!?!?

Post a pic so we can see how the metalizer works. I got an email from dipyourcar.com the other day showing some new pearl colors.

Check out their website. They have forums and everything.

I like the Chameleon Pearl. I wonder how it holds up to heat? I guess OK since people put it on their wheels.

yea the dipyourcar.com is a good site if your looking for special colors. However if your just looking to do your rims and emblems and such just go to lowes or home depot for the white or black dip. its $5 a can from them.
