Plasti-Dip For Rear Badge Painting

Hey guys,

A friend and I recently "painted" the rear emblems on my 09 IS250 with a product I've heard positive things about, Plasti-Dip. I couldn't be happier with how it came out! It's basically sprayable rubber and works just like a can of spray paint. Whole project took a little over 2 hours and if anyone is looking for a step by step let me know. I'll include a link to the pictured we took, let me know what you think.

I did my is300 and it took me 30 min max. Really easy to do.

Up load some pics!!! I got over excited too but only did my license plate frame, would love to see what the rims look like!

ivey your 300 looks sick! I think it looks so much better on a lighter color car, really stands out!

I actually ended up using bed liner for a pickup truck bed to give it a mild textured look, its made by duplicolor. It gave it a very subtle difference but definitely made it stand out, worked well for a semigloss look

For you lazy asses that don't wanna find it in stores:

Coatings Universal / Paints Performance Parts and Aero Parts Sport Compact Auto & Import Performance Superstore

I guess it comes in a few different colors, blaze orange and blue could be sweet.
