Also made a fuse box cover -- $60 to buy?? I bought .025" from Ace for $8. Also sprayed in the V8 emblem, i think I will highlight the V8 on the yellow background at some stage....

Now for the Bow Tie and SS emblem on the grille. The Bow tie I masked it, and carefully used (several) razor blades to trim. Keyed the surface and used Adhesion promoter, paint and top coat.
The SS emblem I took off
Keyed it, and using a real small brush laid in the adhesion promoter, and used touch up brush to paint it in - the paint literally evens itself out. Any overspill is easily scraped off when dry

Also bought some matte black vinyl sheet and made my own rear black bowtie. 2 attempts - roughly cut, then edged with a razor blade (or 3)

Also fitted the MACH XL which is great. and did the Ambient lighting mod - Time consuming - But worth it
Next will be Black Chrome wheels.....
