    I am so sorry I didn't realize I had a message from you here.

    The Jeep logo was easier than the rings. You just mask a rectangle around it giving it about an inch around the lettering, mask the rest of the hood and start spraying away. The Plastidip can says 8 coats which you do need because you want it to be thick. I wanted to match the dark graphite look of the TH badge so I did 6 coats of black, one of gunmetal and then a last one of black over it while coat #7 was still wet. The black overcoat mixed on the surface to make a dark graphite. It worked out much better on the logo than the rings.
    After the dip dries for about an hour pull up the masking and start pulling away at the edges of the rectangle you painted. The dip will pull up right up to the end of the emblem. It sounds counter-intuitive but it actually works. Once the edges are done take a toothpick or wooden skewer and pull away at the dip inside the letters. Any overspray can be removed with some clay.
