I've got my flame suit on for this one. So over Thanksgiving break I decided to take a day to do some DIY mods, so I cleared my headlights and it turned out awesome, then I decided to paint "WRX" on my intercooler. I took it off the car and spent a good hour and a half picking out the little pieces of gravel and straightening out the fins. Then I taped off the outside of the intercooler and spent another hour meticulously taping off a perfect WRX logo, and then painted it with black engine paint. I was particularly proud of myself because it was looking great...until I took all the masking tape off and realized where I had gone completely wrong. I'll let the picture explain...
I my girlfriend saw my face as I unwrapped it and immediately started cracking up. I was obviously pretty mad at myself but I couldn't help but bust up laughing, especially since I had told myself earlier in the day that I had to pay attention because it would be easy to make this mistake.
I wasn't going to post this out of embarrasment but it's just too good to keep to myself, so I hope you all get some enjoyment out of my stupidity!
Also any suggestions as to where to go from here would be helpful. Does anyone know if paint thinner will remove dried engine paint? Or should I just paint the rest of the inner section black and re-do WRX in silver?
