    Well for me, I cleaned them with water and Simple Green, then I cleaned them with thinner and a wire brush, mask everything really well, covering the car with sheets. I used VHT in a rattle can. Started putting on light coats, did that until I was happy with the way they looked. Let them dry. Then I took an old t-shirt and streached the cloth tightly over my index finger and dipped it in thinner and cleaned the paint off of the Corvette letters. There are many differnt ways to do it but that was how I did it! ARKvette02, how did you do it?

    I cleaned them with a bucket of water and a detergent, either simple green or castrol purple cleaner with a tooth brush and toiletbowl sized brush. I then sprayed them with the brake cleaner supplied by the Eastwood Co. and a wire brush. The following day I started applying the paint. I took the paint off the letters with a razor.

    With little variations I see we used about the same method.
