It has more than half a can I believe. I'll have to go check. The spray paint is cheap. Sipping is the costly part.

So many of these emblems look great. Does anyone happen to have a spare trunk emblem for the impreza? I need to redo mine and it costs 50 bucks at the dealership to get a new one.

07.

The trunk emblem should be about 4 inches by 2 inches (not exact but within .25 inches)

Im pretty sure the 06 emblem fits it though. Not completely sure

Try Ebay. Though I might have a couple that I picked up thinking they would be the same size as the '11s.

Already tried ebay, and the 11's are bigger than the 07's (if I remember correctly from all my research) by a full inch at least.

I'm quite aware of this, otherwise I wouldn't be thinking of letting someone else use them.

I tried this on two badges using Goof off and bleach. Both cracked. What's up with that? I ended up buying a black i badge off eBay for 10$ and calling it day. Sadbanana

I just did my emblems, I actually wet sanded the blue off and then polished the plastic. I then left them to soak in some purple power (I used it all the time to strip radio control car/truck hard bodies) which started to loosen up the remainder of the paint and chrome. I used a pick tool to chip away at it in the corners

Used Testors red model paint for the stars and basic black spray paint for the rest

pics




black bled through a little bit on the front one but it created a kind of cool shadowed effect
