Dang! That's sure enough an idea... I used plasti dip, and the only way to bullet proof his idea ?? Is Coating the whole emblem with plasti dip clear gloss coating, ( after being trimmed in black) and even plaiti dip clear gloss, will kill the bling your looking for.

thought about a thick coat over the letters and then sand the excess off with some 2000 grit and then polish
I Believe you have the answer!^^^ then I'd hit with 12 thousand ..... Paper, i looked emblem best i could.... I wouldn't use any polish, if your sure the wings and tin, and the center in billet alumi ... It could miss match, and that's a nice Harley emblem!

I'm late to the party but if it were me I'd use this technique. I've used it on various projects and it will eliminate having to use any sandpaper. And, the rubbing alcohol should not effect your finish.


If you use the above method you can still try the method that @macarena_man mentioned but, as he said, be sure to use a cloth with no pile. Think about a thin cotton pillowcase (not polyester).

I like the plastic dip but those letters are soooo close together I'm afraid you'll have a difficult time trying to get all those tiny areas cleaned up. I think it would be very tedious and require a very sharp x-acto knife. LOL

Any way you go this project will take time and lots of patience to get it right.

I thought you were just blacking the center emblem ??, your going to copying the plate below (your 1st post) should turn out looking great! Looking forward to the end result!

Check this out! A bit extreme, but sure looks great! And still retains all the bling, in colors.

Yep , blacking out the lettering and painting the wing feather red , white and blue , then some white stars on the blue , thinking of making a stencil and using a air brush to paint the stars

Cool video with the colored chrome , but one color , his rim looked like a Mardi Gras float wheel and I'd bet he has a small fortune $$$ invested in all the paints he sprayed

Yep, small a small fortune .... Came to mind with me to... But, that was SOME coloered bling, I'm more of an oem looking scheme ... Less complecated choices... Call me old, or too many forks on that plate...

I also wonder how well that colored chrome would last ---- it would look good to have a blue atv with blue chrome tinted racks and rims

Used GirlsGoneWild's video applied paint thick with a Q-Tip , found rolling the Q-Tip while it was very wet applied the paint pretty good , then wipe across with dry Q-Tips till fairly clean , let it dry 5 minutes then Q-Tip with alcohol ----only thing was the alcohol discolored the aluminum a bit

2 coats of paint on the wings , needs another ----not real fond of the finish project , the wings are phony ---but all in all , a wall hanger for the club house
