Smakes...

Just acetone the black, then spray your color. while the color is tacky, take acetone with a q-tip or use laquer thinner with a q-tip to strip the color off the chrome. I've done many valve covers like this and turned out quite nicely.


oh....i didn't fail on mine btw...i was trying a new paint system to me...my first emblem I did is currently on my tailgate....did that one nearly 2 years ago.

i didnt say you failed on anything, i said you attempted it..
and i dont wanna strip the chrome i like it. like i previously said im going to try one with white outlining and chrome lettering and if i dont like it, ill try it your way


edit : i misunderstood what you meant by acetone the color off the chrome, that is a smart idea lol,
it wouldve saved me an hour of masking and a couple drops of blood.

just got around to holding it up on my truck.. and since those were spare emblems i couldnt position it too well.

i think itll look pretty good , the chrome wont pop out as much anymore being against white but it makes it look cleaner

Meh, sorry. I don't like it.

The black around the emblems kind of helps break the monotony of the color white. I say either remove the emblems all together, or just leave them as is.

Oh man, that was so funny. I can't tell if I pissed myself from laughing at that, or from drinking too much.

I dont like it. I think the blue will look better sence it will break up all of the white.
