When I started calling my car a GX1 in the late ‘80’s I had purchased the GNX emblems, wheel decals and fender vents.
I decided not to disrespect those who paid big bucks for a real one, so I came up with GX1.
It’s a mix of the two hottest cars at the time, the GNX and the ZR1.
I cut a piece of stainless steel the size and shape of the GNX grille emblem and polished it.
I made (hand cut) an outline decal template for the GX1.
I applied it to the Stainless plate and painted inside the lines with a small brush.
I wet sanded the paint smooth down to the decal template thickness, peeled the decal template off and clear coated everything.
I repeated the wet sanding and clear coating until it was all smooth.
Now that it’s chipped some I had a sign shop buddy make some printed decals with a layer of clear for depth and shine.
I don’t have the grille emblem on yet, but here’s a sneak peek at a wheel decal installed. View attachment
