I have watched a few youtube videos on plasti dip on the badges. they just taped around the outside and painted the entire area with several light coats. then removed the blue tape. then used a toothpick to snag some of the painted area inside of the VW logo and it takes out the center section with a clean line all around the inner areas. Lets see some front vw emblem pics when you get yours done. I have the same reflex silver beetle and need to get that done to my front emblem. I have been wanting to matte black mine out since day one.
