well, redid the hood stripes a bit wider and further apart. Used an entire can of white dip and then put a bit of gloss on them. They look alot better now.

looks tight bt i know you can't do too many layers or light won't shine through. it still looks good with the couple layers. i did the same thing

it looks good on the hatch because the tails blend with the windows, and it looks great. On a sedan or wagon it looks horrible! Thats why I got them light now

is it hard to do emblems? I imagine you run a x-acto or something around them and peel the part covering the paint? Looks good.

Definitely not an x-acto knife, that would cut your paint. someone said they used a tooth pick to cut a clean edge to fix theirs up, I think one of those plastic disposable dental sticks would work, they should be hard enough and they have a semi sharp edge.

Yea don't use a blade or anything that would cut the paint underneath! I put tape down and put a coat and pealed it up. Let it dry and reapplied it and repeated the process. Yea its annoying but it worked well! Never tried a tooth pick though, that might work as well
