    Painting a logo on a sub box?

    Hey all... I just made a sub box for a chick I know that will house 1 Type R, and I want to add a little accent to it, because right now it is just a flat black color. I was thinking of painting a Type R logo on the top of the box in red. How could I do this? Should I make a stencil some how? I was thinking of finding a picture of the logo online, blowing it up onto a bigger piece of paper and making a stencil out of that?

    I would do just what you said. Find a logo, blow it up, print it out, and then make a stencil out of that *****. Staples will probably do all that for you for basically no cost if you want it really big, of course the print will cost you though.

    Go to a crafts store, get some supplies, and carve it out, that would look sick

    I painted a Rockford logo on my box a couple of years ago. I used this vinyl paper that goes on the bottom of cabinets. Its sticky on one side. It didnt work that good. It is best to use this stuff called transfer paper. It basically a 2' or 3' wide roll of masking tape. You can find it at your local automative paint supply store. I had kinkos blow up the logo for me.
