If you're emblem is the same as mine, there's enough of a gap between the chrome and blue that the plastidip breaks along the gap. I didn't tape anything or use a razor blade. Would be the same process for the chrome ring.
Don't start to peel the lettering too soon or the plastidip is like tar...makes a mess and you have to start over.
yah i tried it last night before this message. sprayed 4 or 5 layers, tried to razor it, and the dip wouldnt cut clean, causing either frayed edges or pulling from the rest of the emblem. sprayed and tried again. This time i tried taking q-tips and whiping the spray off the lettering while it was still wet. worked at first, but looked sloppy cuzz of inconsistant strokes.
Right now its just all sprayed black. The letters are raised up, but i feel like ill get the same results as with the blade, if i try to pick the plastic from the letters.
