Painting the Trunk "CELICA"
search didn't really show much on this subject

Is it possible to paint the "CELICA" word above our License Plate? maybe some model paint and a small brush?

has anyone done this? how does it look?

my car is silver and i was thinking maybe black, or red to match the GTS badge

thoughts?

Don't listen to these guys. Go to Joan's Art's and Crafts or Micheals and buy Paint Markers. Thats what i used and it turned out great. They only cost like $3.

are you kidding me... you can get good quality stickers for $10 that fit perfectly and you don't have to screw around worrying about getting paint outside the line like a kindergarden class or something rofl

Takes about 5 mins to put on the stickers and look great!

how is paint going to get on the outside? its a paint marker. and if you have thinner at your house that wipes right off. You can do it either way. I painted the Celica and the door sills with a paint marker and they both turned out great. The Vynals don't last as long.
