    c'mon - just rack it up on the ole' Visa card. Not too much time left before you're going to want to be styling on the water.

    peel the rest of the stickers off, hit it with your new polisher and finish it off with the new chrome decals.

    Know the feeling. If I had money for those fancy letters I'd be drinking a lot better beer right now.

    Heres an update to the Plasti Dip yours letters.

    If i didn't mention before, once this stuff cures a couple days its pretty tuff stuff.

    How ever i was sort of purposely not being too careful with it because i wanted to know how well it will hold up in the real world of boating.

    The last time we were out ti got really windy at the end of the day, and it was wind that blows you into the dock. Also makes it a pain to trailer the boat.

    Anyhow i didn't use my bumpers and i got a little dock rash on my letters.
    I was disappointed but at the same time i thought, well now i can do a repair and show how easy you can fix this stuff. LOL.

    Before picture, you can see the scratches on the edges, This creates a lip in the plasti dip and makes it easy to peel off.



    Preped buy masking close to the letter, i didn't want to respray all the letters.



    First i took some basic paint thinner, or almost any solvent based liquid. Rub the damaged section lightly. After a few minutes it will start to desolve to a liquid. Just use your finger to smooth out the edges

    Then i sprayed 3 coats as you normally would. First coat was light and second coat was heavy with extra attention to the damaged area.

    3rd coat was light as a finish coat.

    Lastly i used the solvent to clean up all the fine marks left over from the original time i did it and had over spray all over the boat LOL



    Let it dry for 30 minutes in the sun then peeled it away.

    Might have to dig out the chrome letters I have in a box somewhere and give this a try.

    I saw that, and a guy on Wake World did that as well. I'm curious how it will hold up. The biggest thing I'm careful about it wiping the boat down. I am extra careful around the letters. I don't want the micro towel catching an edge.

    Only other thing i would worry about is people always touching it lol
