Update!

I got plasti dip happy.

The Front - 5 Coats of Plastidip Black
The tails - 5 Coats of Plastidip Smoke
The Ford Emblem - About 6 to 7 Coats of Plastidip Smoke







This one is before and after plastidip smoke

damn dude nice cars! Your focus is looking good too! Good job with the plastidip. I used the Smoke on my rear Ford emblem but it didnt turn out all too well (barely noticeable differecne) cus of humidity - but I ended up putting vinyl decal on top of it anyways (need to make build thread! lol)
The smoked tails look much better than I would have expected! cool wheels too.

Yeah i'm dying to go to a car show because my Shadowfax is starting to look heavily modded :)

Let me know what you all think.

Blacked out front emblem :





Smoked Rear Emblem






Which looks better? I did the front black to match and the back smoked to match my theme there.

I like to rep Ford so if I had to choose from the 2 then the smoke. THe only diff with the smoke is it's no longer chromey but more like that polished aluminum in the interior. I like it because I don't like chrome on the exterior... the only place it works is the headlights. If you do vinyl emblem covers you can customize them. Or maybe try painting, with a brush, the Ford lettering on top the plastidip to save money?

I agree with Ron, I think uniquely colored emblems (maybe grey background, white letters, or gray with black) would look better. But that's just my opinion, car looks good
