Wink DIY: Transfer SRT8 Front Grille Emblem to different color

You can transfer your SRT8 Front Grille Emblem to any color you desire.

1. You need to buy SRT8 Front Grille Emblem

2. You need to buy adhesive backed vinyl sheet from eBay.
I got it from this seller: http://stores.ebay.com/adhesivevinyl
There are different colors to choose from. I got Orange Red,
Red and Dark Red because I wasn't sure which one will look good.
The one on the picture is RED. You can ask the seller for a better
deal so you don't have to buy 12 or 20 sheets. I think minimum was 5.

3. You need to buy Rust-Oleum Crystal Clear Enamel or different brand.

4. You will also need utility blade/box cutter with sharp blade.

5.

6. First you clean your emblem with alcohol

7. Cut a rectangular piece of your vinyl approximately 7"x3" and attach
it to the top of your emblem, put some pressure on it and rub it so it
attaches to it.

8. Cut out your letters gently with utility knife/box cutter.

9. After you are done cutting it, place it on a table or hang it and spray
paint it with crystal clear enamel. You will have to put like 7-8 coats
to make it hard and to last longer. Wait like 24 hours to dry completely
and mount it.

This is how it looked before and after transformation.
