    Anyone have any good tips on how to do this? Every time I try, when I try to get the letters out, it starts pealing around the outer part. I've tried multiple times and just can't get it. Toothpick, fingernail, nothing seems to work. Driving me nuts.

    I just got my 3D printed cursive turbo emblem and was wondering if I need to spray some kind of protectant on it before putting it on the car? It's matte and bare now, not sure if the weather would beat the **** out of it. If so, what would be best to use? Thanks for any help!
