Default 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.

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