Just a quick question, Could you do this with plastidip instead of spray paint so its an easily reversible modification to a car?

I suppose so if its durable enough to handle thousands of komakasi bug impats. You can also get vinyl stiker kits on ebay.

I like it!
a while back I knew a few people that had replaced the emblem with "Indiglow" emblems... they light up that indigo blue/green color. It'd be cool if someone figured out a way of making one of those with this decal.
