New mod done!! Painted Grand Cherokee lettering

Well I got one side done this evening. It tood 3.5 hours to do one side and it sucked ass. I masked on it forever, and the paint still bled through around the edges. I am just going to free hand the other side tomorrow. I had to go back and take a q-tip and paint thinner to remove the paint lines.

Let me know what you think...


Masked off, thinking I was set.


Paint bleeding through screwing me over lol


Finished poor lighting.


Finished.



I will get some daylight shots tomorrow and post them. I think it looks way better than what it is showing.

Re: New mod done!! Painted Grand Cherokee lettering

Re: New mod done!! Painted Grand Cherokee lettering

I was thinking about doing this on my black moldings. Since the letters are raised, i was wondering if I could get a vinyl sticker made with the same font or close to it to just stick on the letters. Since my jeep is white, it might be easier to color match. I just dont know how long it would stay on and last?

Re: New mod done!! Painted Grand Cherokee lettering

Not my cup of tea, but props for taking it on! I wouldn't have the balls to do that.

That masking job must have taken fawking hours to do both sides, LOL.
