Paint your Front & Rear Corvette Letters!
Give your rear end a new look
BY: Jim Kramer - firstname.lastname@example.org
I learned the following SIMPLE way to paint
& Rear "Corvette" Lettering
Lint Free Cloth or Wipes
Enamel Spray Paint (Pick your Color) DO NOT USE QUICK
Clean the lettering with Mineral Spirits. If you are
lettering, make sure to get all the glue cleaned up.
Mask off a square area just outside the
sure to protect the area outside of the square from
paint. You should
end up with a rectangle area where it says "Corvette",
and the rest of
it should be protected from paint.
Spray the entire rectangle with the
Enamel paint, until
it looks nice and smooth.
Let it dry for about 60 seconds. Remove
the masking tape,
being careful not to mess up the fresh paint in the
recesses of the letters.
Take the lint free cloth, and put some
on it. Start cleaning up the paint that is outside the
letters. Be careful
to stay on the top of the surface, avoiding the recesses
of the letters.
You will need to keep working with clean cloth, and
fresh mineral spirits
as the cloth becomes dirty. The paint comes off very
easily, so don't
worry about it leaving a mess.
That's it... it's SIMPLE - and looks
like a $100 Air
Brush Job! I would start with the license plate cover,
as it is easily
removed, and can be done off of the car. It's a little
scary at first
(spraying paint on your car!!!!), but it really is
harmless! Total time:
Approx 25 minutes.
