PAINT YOUR CLUB PLAQUE
If you are one of those that just received your new Pickups Limited membership plaque or even if you have had yours for some time, maybe you want to dress it up a bit. Plain or polished aluminum is nice but a black background really sets off the artwork. This is a really simple process and something that anybody can do in about 2 hours time. Here’s how:
After the lacquer thinner has been on the plaque for a while, scrub it with a brush then dry with a clean towel. Then scrub with Simple Green and a clean brush using hot water. Let air dry.
You can mask the larger areas but as you will quickly see, it’s really not worth the trouble. Out plaques have a rough background which paint will adhere well to. If yours is a smooth background, then you need to use a self etching primer before applying the black.
Keep changing the towel until you are no longer taking off any black paint. Then set to the side and keep clean. I used the shoe box that was my mini spray booth to keep all the little bugs away. Mount on the rear using an extra license plate mount or wherever else you have in mind.
Looks good, doesn’t it.
