Very easy. Simply mask of a rectangular area around the badges with blue painters tape leaving about an 1" of room between the badges and tape. Then spray the entire masked off area. Make sure to vary your spray angle to get in all the cracks. Then unmask and peel away the overspray. The plastidip will cut itself around the edges of the lettering. There are some very good diy videos on Youtube, specifically from dipyourcar.com. Check them out and will see how easy it is!

I really like how they turned out. I have had the scoop, grill and badges dipped for about 2,000 miles and it has held up great.
Good luck!

I did the grille on my 2011 Forester this weekend. It looks so much better now, in my opinion!

Mlilstix-I see we have the same grill style! Like the wheels, I was either going to go black or bite the bullet and order a gold "wheel kit" from dipyourcar.com

Alki-Thanks for the compliment, I just need to do the door handles and no more chrome. Woohoo! We still need to meet up and check out each others Foresters!

'01 Forester S- Nice job with your grill! My girlfriend has the same one and makes me wanna dip hers.

Plasti-dipped my front grille and the rear SUBARU emblem on the rear. Too much chrome with those big letters.



Also, I used the Nite-Shades RED on the tail lights to get rid of that ugly amber lense on the top for the blinker




A lot of wetsanding and buffing to get a nice shine

Is the bottom half two tone also Plasti Dip?

Wheels look good!
