    Plastidip is 10X easier and a lot cheaper.
    You can even make it look like carbon fiber, just Google it.

    Look at YouTube videos of making it look like carbon fiber.

    I recommend using thw cutting tape if you are just going to vinyl wrap it

    How did you get the emblem off?
    Is it just a sticker?

    I'm going to add the Ford Emblem to my list for 3d printing it. Someone already has made a design, just have to modify it for the design

    I plastidip'd all my chrome on my 2014. I love the way the car looks all blacked out.
