My badges, some dip, and a razor
 
I finally got the courage to take a can of dip to my 2 month old truck. Its kinda scary just taping off a square and painting it black, but it worked just as promised. But I wasn't entirely happy with the results:

So I grabbed a razor and trimmed the letters. Now i'm very happy with the results:

Next up is the front cross, antenna, and the slots in the rims.

I like the 2 tone that you did with the black over the chrome. Nice job!

How many coats did you spray?

I used 4 fairly heavy coats, about 3/4 of a can across all three. Once it was peeled around the badges I took a razor and traced the lines. It was pretty easy, just painstakingly slow trying to make sure I didn't mess up. Every time I felt the razor start to grab a little I switched to a fresh one.

That's awesome. You're the first person I've seen to do this. Good stuff

Nice work. Love the detail of the chrome around it really kicks it off and makes it stand out

Yep, peels right off just like a band aid.

Awesome! Defiantly doing this then will looks awesome on mine cause its an all black truck and I'm going for the all black "murdered" out look but leaving the rims chrome and sidesteps chrome as well
