A little extra touch after I striped my car

The chrome emblems just didnt look right, so I decided to experiment with white to match my stripes. What do you guys think. I think they turned out pretty good. I was worried they might look a little cartoonish.





What do you guys think?

Very nice, original, and cool. As someone who has plastidipped the emblems on two of my cars I learned it's a great way to add a subtle but significant touch. Great job.

I like.....What about trying white plastidip on the wheels. I've seen Mini's with the red/white combo and like it. It's only temp and might be fun for the summer.

2012 V6 traded in for a 2017 VW GTI.

Thanks, I plasti dipped all the emblems on my 03 Mach 1 black and loved them, so I figured I would give this a shot. I only had to peel it off like 5 times because I wasn't happy with them. LOL

StrangeMud - I actually thought about the white wheels, but I figured they would just be a dirt magnet.

Always liked white wheels, an 80's thing, the 5.0 looks good white.
