Turned out great and is what FORD should have done from the get go instead of using the 2010 "GT" badge.



That looks amazing! Well done ride. We've been doing a few of those lately. I will be looking into board sponsorship in the coming weeks. Our Ford Licensing is complete, and now is the time.

I just taped over the GT (nothing intricate just a few pieces of tape) and then peeled the plasti dip off the whole center section. The small gap makes it easy to peel off the plasti dip without it tearing (just like between the emblems and the paint). So, the center insert has no plasti dip left on it, and the stock black color actually matched pretty well with the plasti dip color.

I was pleasantly surprised at how well the plasti dip worked leaving the emblems on the car. Just do some taping for overspray, and then peel off what you don't want to keep. It's actually easier if you don't tape very accurately because it gives you something to grab onto to peel off the overspray. Kinda hard to explain, because it acts nothing like a regular paint. Search plasti dip on youtube to see it in action.

uin2it,

I just recieved mine in the mail today. Which method worked best for you on removing the emblem from the car?

Fishing line seems to be the best but wanted to see what you did first.

Quality looks good and thanks to EmblemPros for the quick email updates, good guys indeed.

Went ahead and did some Plastidip tests. Still dirty from the rubbing off on chrome part though

Those 5.0 rear badges look great on the cars.
