Going to install the Mountune FMIC (Front-Mounted Inter-Cooler) next week, so I wanted to put the logo on the FMIC to give a little 'pop' to the front end... fortunately they send a template :)
Since the ST has red calipers, I went with a high-temp Ford Red VHT - you can see the template that Mountune sends along with the FMIC.
Nice template that they send, but it centers the logo in the FMIC, need to modify :)
First, gotta figure out where to have the logo placed, I figured up about 3 rails to have it show underneath the bumper.
A straight edge, and cut a nice straight line...
Now it's lower where it will be visible, and flush on the front of the FMIC so paint doesn't get under the template - perfect!
Now the frog tape, cover all the primary edges...
Add some boxes and paper bags to protect from overspray on the edges, top and bottom
LIGHTLY spray a few coats onto the intercooler, spritz from all 4 sides to ensure paint gets into the crevices and cracks - if you look at it from 360-degrees you'll notice the high-low spots in the paint.
after about 10 minutes, carefully peel back the covers - and voila!
My wife loves it - it's going to be a nice look when mounted!
Have fun and be safe!
Pretty nice matchup! Glad I picked VHT Ford RED!
