    So I wanted to add a bit of a unique look to my car. Currently it's a lease, so I can't do much to it and I don't want to invest much money in it. With some adhesive foil I made some custom badges- I blacked out the original badges with plasti dip with a plasti dip gloss overcoat for those wondering

    One issue you'll see here is that the back one is a bit bumpy- The ford logo is actually textures and it unintentionally picked up that texture.
    (Just washed and waxed my car and it rained right after, dirty already -.- )

    Anyway, they aren't perfect- Up close they are a bit dodgy still, but they are a work in progress. Going to work on ones that are more refined, but overall I think i got a good start here. I wanted to create my own car manufacturer logo that resembled a decepticon logo, but wasn't as detailed as it.

    (Also I should mention it is a metallic black paint, car name is Decepticon Galaxy- not the most inventive, but its stuck for me :D  )

    Hope you guys enjoy

    Looks great! I might design something transformer related of my own for my barchetta someday.

    Thanks! And be sure to show it if you do!:thumbs2: 

    Thanks! Yes indeed they are plastidipped as well, and with a coat of the plastidip glossifier over them (Just recently put that one after touching them up, wondering how quickly it's gonna wear down with how much I gotta clean brake dust off of them...)

    Originally I was going to do some sort of orange design on the car with plastidip, but out of three cans of orange, it just doesn't spray even close to how nicely the black does, and I think I prefer a black+silver color combo anyway.

    yeah I plastidipped my wheels but didn't use a glossifier. Had no issues and it's still fine after over a year! I'm all murdered out

    How do you plasti-dip something as large as a wheel?
