Yeti Engine Dressing: The TSi Lettering

Skoda tsi letters
Engine dressing is essential now that my Yeti will be 10-years old this year.
Let's paint some stuff under the bonnet.

Today I will do something with the TSI letters.
I buy a permanent red marker.

The area cleaned, let's get going...

I hate it. This maker can never make these letters look good.

I need another idea😒

Okay back to the DIY store for a tin of model paint and some brushes.

The permanent red marker doesn’t want to come off (that’s permanent for you!)

I'll paint over it...

I hate it. The more coats I apply the tackier it looks.
I need a new idea🤨
Walking around the DIY store for the third time today I spot something hanging in a section of signs for doors and offices and businesses.
Well well, I wonder…

is dressing the engine worth it?

So let’s try this idea and see if a good result can be achieved🙏

Okay so my first two tries were💩

But I am definitely happy with this.

Thanks for visiting.
And feel free to stay tuned for more Yeti modifications I have planned.

Just a heads up: many of my posts contain affiliate links of products I have bought for my Yeti.
If you buy something from one of these links, you will not pay a penny more.
I will get a small commission, although not every time.
The extra pennies help me to pay the annual cost of the domain name.
I thank you for your support.
