Rear emblem repaint

Post by Johnny_S » Sun Feb 6th, 2005 2:52

Has anyone had any experience (positive experience preferred ;D ) repainting the "Plymouth" chrome name tag on the trunk lid? I would like to get mine rechromed but don't know how I will go about repainting the rest. ???

John,


I painted the inside of the big chrome plate on the trunk
with the plymouth emblem.....I found a paint stick at wal mart
for $5......you can either paint it on with a tiny brush that comes with the pen or use the pen...I tried the pen first and it was rather messy
I then removed the first try with gasoline and started again...I brushed it on with the tiny brush...takes about 30 minutes.....It looks good, but not perfect...I am not totally happy with it ....my next idea is to mask it and paint the whole thing and then scrape the paint off from the top of the letters with a tooth pick. ...for right now though it looks pretty good and the black paint that I used really makes the plymouth stand out.....The chrome on our is in excellent shape.

John ,

I forgot to say with my next try I will use a spray paint as I think that is the only thing that will give you a perfect job.

Thanks for the note. Let me know how the spray paint works. Interested to know if you use(d) a primer paint first.
