Wow that's beautiful, what did you use to make the logo? Or was it a pre-made sticker? I'm thinking of doing the same thing with mine so I need to know as much as I can ahaha

Thank you, I made the logo by hand, I covered the top with masking tape, then drew the UKE on it and cut out the letters with an exacto knife. You just need a lot a patience and good luck man :)

Job well done man, it looks really good. I'm a complete noob on sanding and painting plastic. What paints and sandpaper grade did you use?

I definitely want to try this on my engine bay cover / other various plastics under the hood.

Thank you:), Im a noob with plastic to lol. Heres the paint i used, Valspar flat black, Dupli-color Perfect Match, Brite Touch General Purpose Primer, Dupli-color Engine Enamel Clear. You can use any paint to match the color of the car just hit it with a high temp clear coat just to make sure it doesnt peel and make it nice and shiny:D. For the sandpaper grade I used a 40, 80, 180, and i think 200 grade

I used bondo fiberglass resin jelly, but to make sure the letters didnt show up i sanded them down with 40 grade
