Take any photos while you did it?
No, sorry. I didn't take pics when I did it. These are the first pics I've ever taken of them since last summer

Jim, the Aurora "A" would be VERY nice.

Thanks for the compliments!

Why dye/paint did you use?

Let us know if they bleed when washed....

I just used spray paint. I don't wash them either. I use these only for show (so they don't get dirty).

I did make some other ones in 2002 that just said "SSE" with no Pontiac dart (I have a pic on Page 2 of my CD page). I used those all the time and after cleaning them several times (over the course of a year or so) the paint does come off. When I used them I didn't step on the painted part, but I wouldn't use something like these everyday.

These are more for show. Which is fine for me. I'd get them embroidered if you want to use them all the time.

That'* the same method I used for my hood insulator and EGR cover. The full-sheet avery label paper works great! I bet if you used an epoxy-based paint, it would hold up VERY well on that carpet.

Maybe Krylon Fusion would hold up better? Specially made to stick to plastic. Since the carpets are Nylon, maybe it would do it'* trick the same...
