    I had a friend that works at a sign shop print them on vinyl. He just took a picture of the emblem, changed the colors in photoshop and printed over chrome vinyl.

    Find out if he sprayed any protection over the print. Applying a clear protectant like Frog Juice on printed vinyl helps with longevity and prevents fading. Adding the protection can more than double the life of the print.

    How did you dip the chrome lip in the back under the license plate? I did that and it turned out terrible and I couldn't pull off the excess without messing up the rest. And the sides by the windows? I feel itd be hard to pull off without ruining it?

    I found the key with Dip is to have excellent cleaning and prep. I have always washed with Dawn twice and then wiped the area down with ISP. When applying, use light coats to build up the coating. That way the excess will come off easier and it will not separate at the seams. FWIW.

    Wow. Looks great. I have a black CTS Coupe that I have been considering plastidipping the chrome and wheels on, and I have the same wheels on mine. Was wondering what it would look like and now I know! Thank you!
