Yes, it sticks nicely. the front emblem is much more angled than the rear. i made a template of the front one with notebook paper, creasing the middle and edging with my fingernail. Then cut and outlined the template on the CF-wrap and cut a little bigger. I tucked the edges into the emblem grooves with a thin metal dental pick, cut with a razor blade and smoothed with my fingers.The pics are little small, but from what I can tell, it looks really good. Can you confirm that the vinyl sticks nice with the textured emblems?
I went through three Michigan winters with my Plasti-Dipped Cobalt wheels, before I stopped driving it in winter, and the wheels still look great.I'm thinking of doing this - either with the carbon fibre wrap or possibly with Plastidip. However, I have yet to see any info on this forum how long either of these small mods would last with a non-garaged vehicle. I would suspect probably less than a couple of years...???
