ABARTH word on front grille

My new salvage Abarth Turismo has the word Abarth picked out of the front grille but it’s black on black and not very visible.

I’m putting some red bits on the car which is white so I would like to pick out the word in red. Any ideas on how this can be achieved? Paint brush and can of spray paint?

Yeah you could hand paint or spray just make sure you use a sealer after so it doesn’t “weather”

I guess I could spray the whole thing with clear coat after.

Lots on the Abarth groups use a tyre pen. Don't know how long it lasts though.

Re: ABARTH word on front grille

Air brush probably best way if you have a compressor to run it

I do have a compressor but I think I would make a mess. I think I’ll go down the artist brush route see how it goes.

Re: ABARTH word on front grille

I do mine with a tyre pen from ebay (about £1.50).So easy it takes about 15 mins and lasts really well.Are you going to fill it in or just outline ABARTH?

Just outline it using the letters that are already on it. How long does it last?

Re: ABARTH word on front grille

I normally outline every 4 months or so but then I like it bright and new.But I reckon you could leave it and do it about once a year.No jetwashes though

Re: ABARTH word on front grille

Just to let you know though that Red doesn't really show up against the Black.Why not do it White?
