I was very dubious of it at first, then I saw their video on how to do badges etc, looks so easy because it is!
Im talking with a couple of mates at the moment to see if we can get a big enough order together to make it worthwhile bringing a few boxes into Australia from the USA. Its so hard to find over here virtually no one has it.
This is easy (just ask Turbosocks). Either buy your can of Plastikote locally or online (I bought a can of red and black on e-bay cheap; also available on Amazon).
If you want to save yourself some cleanup, mask off the area around your emblem with painters tape (easy off) and newspaper, spray a heavy coat all over (so it looks solid without pin holes, but not enough to run) and let it dry for 5 minutes, then spray another heavy coat. Remove all of the masking before it dries without damaging your fresh paint. If you don't remove it before drying, you'll find when you remove the masking, it will also pull the paint on your emblem away with it, unless you cut around the emblem with an xacto knife or such. (I think it's easier to remove the masking while the paint is wet).
If you don't really want to mask the area off, you can just make a template out of a sheet of manila folder (for stiffness) and when the paint is dry, you can easily rub off the overspray.
If you are concerned about getting too much spray on the first or second time and you have plenty of time to do the job, just follow the instructions on the above video. My way worked well for me, but you have choices.
I gave mine 20 minutes between coats. After 4th coat, I allowed it to dry for well over an hour. Removed all the paper and carefully removed the tape closest to the badging. I had no problems peeling the extra on the painted surface away from the badging without having to use a knife. Follow the instructions provided in the videos by dipyourcar.com and you will have no problems.
For those of us who do not have build threads or a place to show what we've recently done to our VT.
I do not have any juicy pics to start things off but I did receive my Quik valve drain plug, and I just ordered some BTJetman rear reflector mesh inserts. Looking to get me some black eye line...
I was wondering if the stock exhaust layout on a 2016 VT is enough to handle a cold air intake system or would i need to cutomize that first? Im just looking to get a lil more potential out of this beast. Idk a whole lot about this sort of thing so I couldnt give you a laid out plan. i just know...
I have a 2016 veloster turbo and dont have the nav or tech package. Wondering why Hyundai would put the bluelink rearview mirror with navigation buttons if my vehicle doesnt have navigation or the tech package.
