First things first
Thanks! Look forward to the photo. I just need to see the way they look to decide on doing this or not.Yes, mine is a modern steel, and I think it looks much better with the back emblems blacked out. I'll get a pic of the entire back posted pronto. I simply used a few coats of plasti dip. There are a few hundred Youtube clips on how to do it, and its really easy. And I left my emblems alone on my NFR S2000 but clacked out the ones on my Rio Yello Pearl S
That’s also what stopped me. I’ve also looked at just removing them, but then I just too,away it’s identity. Plus, many said it starts peeling in a year!I hope I am not sounding overly critical, because I have Modern Steel too and would love to black out the chrome Passport, but in the photo, I see a lot of surface bumps on the "T" and see some other pits/bumps/anomalies on some of the other letters as well.
Now I'm sure from a few feet away these might not be readily seen, but the only way I'm gonna black-out my letters if it looks perfectly smooth and "factory" looking finish on them.
I was just talking about you!Not the greatest shot, but you can get sense of how it looks/feels.
The great thing about plasti dip is how you can remove and stat over. I did a hurried job, so that accounts for the roughness. I did the same to my Subie XT and that's held up great for the past 3 years, so applying 4-5 coats and taking your time pays off. Maybe i'll peel and restart this weekend
That looks good. I’m x3 coats in...?I did PlastiDip on the front bumper insert and front and rear logos on my GTI and it lasted years...I was thinking about doing the emblems on the passport but mine is touring, and the touring badge is not the same as the elite so it would look like a black rectangle
