I like the hubs but especially like the emblem! Did you clearcoat the emblem too? How many layers of paint? I've been wanting to black out my emblems for awhile but don't want them to chip and wear out quick

Thanx

I did not use clear coat on the emblem, the paint I used contains a hardening agent which protects it. If you want to be sure that the paint will be protected, then yes I would recommend that a clear coat be used. Are you going with a flat black or gloss black emblem look? If you are going with the flat black, then do not use the clear coat, just put on 2 or 3 coats of primer (black) and then 2 or 3 coats of the top coat.
