Hi if your bonnet and boot badges are looking tired you could coat them on the car with plasti dip spray paint like I've just done it took around 2hrs there's videos on youtube showing you how, I just cleaned around the badges with panel wipe masked off with an inch roughly around the letters and followed the advice on the tin! Removed the plasti dip with a wooden cocktail stick (easily) and wiped any further over spray with a microfiber cloth. I think they look alot better many colours available.

Looks good job does that! We were looking to change ours from silver to black lettering by removing the old and sticking new ones on. If we used the plastic coat would it go over silver letters and cover with out peeling?

From what I read and have seen online once it's cured (4hrs) it's robust enough to wash and jetwash only time will tell! the Cosworth lettering font was expensive to replace and hard to get hold of so at £10.50 for the proper plasti dip and a few hours work mainly waiting the 20mins between coats (3 coats applied) I'm happy.
The plasti dip has many applications so I'm confident it will last🤞🏼
I went with Matt black but they do many colours really surprised how easy it was to peel the excess off it come of like latex

Just don't let bird poo sit on it for too long,
I plasti dipped a front grill on a car and left the poo on too long,
it will eat through the plasti dip if left..

But it does jet wash and cope with all sorts of weather.. ===========================================

That’s great! Think i’ll Give this a try as it will be so much easier than taking the old lettering off and lining up new! Cheers Thumbs Up

A good car ruined by a Censored "styling " guru with his box of crayons. Cosworth used to mean something. Probably look better with the M badge beside the Cosworth logo Rolling with laughter

Interesting I thought I'd posted in Tips & Tricks category regarding tidying up bonnet/ boot lettering. Not do you like my car... If we all liked the same thing it would be a boring world.

good job, looks nice, so when you removed from the bonnet with a cocktail stick did you have to score around the edge of each letter so not to pull the plasti stuff off the sides of the letter?

Yes it was really easy! Watch a few videos on YouTube that's what I did. you will be really surprised how it remains on the badges and just peels off around them. I just picked lightly at the edge of the letters with the cocktail stick and it just peels away! The info I read was to ensure you use the original plasti dip available to order online, other company's do elastic paints but from what I read don't work as well. My car's been washed many times since I did the letters and so far so good👍🏼
