Done messed up

So today I decided to black out my trunk emblems with my nearly empty can of paint from previous projects. I did the ones on my old pickup and it was fabulous. However this time the paint leaked past the lx and Honda where they were taped off. Fuck... So I got most off using some paint thinner from my model kits and nail polish remover. Granted not the best stuff to put on paint but I sorta panicked. I then heated up the emblems and pulled them to clean the rest. What a snafu. I've done this so many times I never thought id mess it up. Will fix the mess and paint the badges off the car and quit stressing. Could have been worse. Rant end lol.

I removed the emblems then sprayed like 4 coats with 20 minute intervals and let it back in the hot Las Vegas sun for about 4 hours. THEN and only THEN did I put them on with some help of some super glue Very Happy

yea my usual technique fucked me good. the emblems are off and will be painted seperatly. the center "h" badge came out easy so it turned out great. meh shit happens. it'll buff out

Not yet. I will get the car washed up first. Been waiting for some sun to finish painting my side trim. Car is looking pretty nice now! I also decided what color to paint the non machined areas of my rims, but they are a bitch to tape off.
