DIY Rear Emblem Painting

DIY Rear Emblem Painting

Hey guys I recently repainted my rear emblem and changed the front to red to match the rest of the car color, milano red.

Anyways I havent done a DIY for a while so here it is

Supplies - Dupli Color 2in1 Fix + Excel Surgical Blade, Razor Blade or sharp exacto knife for scraping excess overpaint from the emblem edges.

For this Emblem repaint i found it easier to use the brush of the scratch fixer insead of masking the emblem off with tape and spraypainting it. the only downside is for this you will need to make good even wet even coverage for the emblem to turn out smooth and nice. Both spraying and brushing applications take patience but the brush method is faster by half the time because with spraying you need to mask off the silver emblem areas which take a hell of alot of time. I dont have patience and mine came out nice so take your time and use a table or a steady surface to do this or your efforts will not come out as nicely.

Also for reapplying the emblem to the rear you can use double sided tape alongside with what i use is crazy glue.Glue the white pin holders that are attached to the trunk first and then glue the whole pin tip of the emblem and attach and push firmly on the emblem against the trunk so there is minimal crack space for someone to try to pry the emblem off in future.

Here are the after shots.
