Emblem coloring and other bits


Hey guys,

Not sure where to put this, so please feel free to move it should it need to be emoticon

I been thinking about this for a while and have seen it done before in the VW world.

Its coloring your emblem in and other bits of writing around your car.

Its done with liquid latex from an areosol and the end results are absolutely fantastic. Its total removable should you wish to take is off later on. Also the finish is hard wearing, durable and doesnt chip.. Ive seen wheels done in the stuff emoticon

So I decided on my bits to paint. Prepped area, masked it off and cleaned with spirits.

Here is the main Nissan emblem prepped and one layer of liquid latex on

other bits

Image

Xtrail logo 2 layers

This is what the finish looks like when its completely dry

next peeling time

Finished product

Never seen this in the exy world.

Re:


I guess it would look nice on lighter colours, but not so much on the darker ones, especially not a black exy unless painted in Red emoticon

EDIT: Just saw that it comes in all sorts of colours, so it's indeed a cool idea emoticon

Me like emoticon

Hey Cooch,

Yes - Plasti dip is the stuff.

It looks very nice, and the finish makes it look like a rubber logo/emblem.

Think my next bit is going to be the long silver piece above the rear number plate as its full of scratches from open the boot into my garage door emoticon

Re:


A lot of the Navara guys use it to do the Navara wheels and roll bars.
Very easy to do and apparently it lasts a long time.
A great alternative to painting.

Re:


That's exactly what I had in mind.....the alloys of the Red Bull.....am sick of seeing the filthy look of them due to brake dust emoticon

Mark: Where do you get this stuff from? I have seen the wheel kit on the web for about $114.00 bucks and included 4 spray cans, does that sound like the right price?

Just get your wheels painted black professionally with a satin clear coat. I've had them done on a few cars. This stuff won't last a real long time on wheels.

Re:


I've been wanting to paint my logos and badging black for quite some time now, but like Jalal mentioned, I wasn't sure it would be worth the effort on a dark colour like mine. But now that I've the finished product, I think I might just go ahead with it anyway
 Looks great!

I want to keep the factory finish intact and not have to worry about scratching the paint off and having to re-paint them all over again. This stuff is the perfect solution and for the price, even if you have to do it once every couple of years is still a better option than painting.

Am actually considering doing this stuff on the whole car on my convertible Merc, I reckon it will look awesome in the matt finish.
