    Plasti Dip V Logo

    I know everyone and their grandma are blacking out the grilles, wheels, vents.......which looks great btw.....but I'm really wanting to powder coat my calipers red. On that note I think having the chrome on the V logo red would look pretty cool (leaving the original red, yellow, black, blue, white on the emblem as is). Any good plasti dipper's out there that know if this would work......or even look good for that matter?

    personally I think a 70k car and plasti-dip do not mix.....

    Your car, your money. I would try it and if it doesn't look right, just rip it off.

    You see chromed ferrari's, lambos, slr's....

    Just because the car is expensive doesn't mean it can't have certain mods. Is it because it's cheap = rice/ghetto whatever you want to call it?

    That's kind of the idea I'm going for except I'd like to do the actual chrome V in red and leave the colored flag portion as is. Thanks for the vid!

    Why?

    It works very nicely. There's a lip around the flag that a sharp razer can edge out the plasti-dip to get the effect.

    Because its cheap? Go ahead and spend money to paint. Paint or rubber.

    I can't tell if you're agreeing with me or not.....I've seen some botched up plasti-dip so it kinda of turned me off to the process. I guess it's a good alternative to paint if you're looking for short-term change.

    ^you can botch it up but it's for the most part reversible. Whereas paint isn't really and the price points are pretty big.

    Yep...that is EXACTLY what I had in mind. Looks awesome btw!

    Yea the plasti dip is cheap but it seems super easy to remove whenever I want to get my car back to stock if/when I want to sell it.

    Man after seeing that picture, I like the matte black chrome area on the back of the trunk too. Too bad my car is black, that's almost too much black.

    I did my V logos with black plastidip. It works great, just be patient and like M5eater said just use a blade to trim it.

    I'm a newbie to plasti dip'ing but Xaqtly......would it be possible to get the chrome around the flag of the V also? Looks great but I think I'd like to to ALL of the chrome on the V logos.
