    I've been wanting to do something like this for a while but my pattern/ stencil keeps coming out like crap. This came out really well!

    I wonder if you couldn't just stick the tape to the front and rear badges and then use the knife to trim it to size. That way the badge acts as a guide.

    i thought about doing that. the tape i used was very thick and i was worried about scratching the chrome. but if you are using thin tape as i see, it might not be that hard.

    Still looks and sticks like the day I did it. That was in the winter and its been through a hot summer here in Canada. I think its all about getting the really good tape. Its about 1/32 thick with a honeycomb pattern in it. ****s holding up better than I thought.
