Default Painting exterior words

I got bored this week so i painted the PONTIAC on the right rear bumper adn the SSE in the front black on my red 94 sse.
I was curious if anyone else has done somethign like this i think it looks great. It was a pain to do.
I'll try to get some pictures soon.

I used painters tape and paper to stencil it.
It was a bitch to get the tape pretty good.
I used gm touch up paint color black clearcoat (gm1)

I put gold pinstriping in the groove around my grill and fog lights. I'm going to paint the "SSE" on the front bumper soon since it'* new and no longer has the plate on the front. That'* the only reason I left the plate off. It will look sweet once it'* done.

I'm still anxiously waiting for Reflective Concepts to come out with fill ins for this. I don't have the guts to try it with a paintbrush.
