Make your own Roundel Overlays DIY

Things you will need
1. Paper
2. Pencil
3.Small amount of vinyl
4. Any type of sharp exacto knife to cut through the vinyl

Step one is to go to your car and trace the front and rear roundels(They are different sizes) on a piece of paper.

Step two is to cut out the traced bit you had on the paper.

Step three is to flip the vinyl so you see the back side and then begin tracing the outside of the cut paper roundel on a part of the actual vinyl.

Step four is to then begin cutting out the two roundels(two for the front and two for the back) on the vinyl with the exacto knife. (This part takes a little patience because you want to get a clean cut so take your time)

Step five is to take your cut vinyl roundels to the vehicle, clean the emblem with some alcohol then place your new roundels on! Your Done! Enjoy!

I've done it before using leftover vinyl. Holds up just as good as the overlay kits you can buy from retailers. The hardest part is cutting a clean, perfectly rounded edge that's an exact fit (just what *Game was talking about).
