    I agree with the masking part. I didn't even bother with trying to tape off inside the badge, so it is a lil metallicy in the gaps of the Nissan Badge.
    As for preference wise, I would much rather a metallic or gloss that I can power polish or paint repair later on. Oh, and no offense intended but I find Plastidip looks, cheap, in my opinion.

    Yeah it looks a bit cheap that's why I got the glossifier, but I kind of like the matte finish on logos and badges. At first I was going to buy a Dupli-Color Black Chrome kit from Canadian Tire ( My main concern was that if I don't like it (or do a bad job) and used paint it would destroy the chrome.

    After 4 years the plastidip on the front bage was looking very rough and the one on the steering wheel started peeling off.
    I removed both badged off, cleaned them up and re-sprayed. Just need redo the rear badge now
