Step 1: Preperation

  1. Remove the emblem then sand off the top layer.  Also sand any raised surfaces flat.  
  2. Clean off any dust and oil in preparation for painting.

  3. Let the paint dry and then attach the vinyl sticker.  
  4. Apply a few layers of clear coat to protect the paint and the sticker.

    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.
