Nice! I can't decide if I want to just debadge or blacken them. Kind of worried that I might break them trying to get them off.

I think you mean "goo-gone"? Goo-gone will not damage paint and will remove glue residue. Goof-off is dangerous to use on paint.

Great minds think alike. Although I removed all my badges.



Now you need to replace those bedside stickers with black ones to complete your "black out" mode.

Plasi-dip works great on badges. Fastest and easiest way to do it, and looks the same. I have done mine almost a year ago and all of them look like I did them yesterday. Vehicle parked outside in the elements of a Canadian winter.

I thought about doing that. Is it very hard to clean the plasti-dip off the paint without tearing it off the badges as well?

Nope not at all, if you go slow it should rip right around the edges of the badge. do 4-5 coats and it comes off easier then 2-3 coats.

chrome badging on a silver truck does not look bad at all IMO.

Not at all. Just start tearing it off slowly and it will to the rest for you by itself. You can use a toothpick to pick out overspray from inside "O", "A" etc.

Yeah, but I am looking at de-chroming everything except the chrome panels on the bottom of my doors soon.

You won't. I pulled off the badges from my tailgate yesterday -- no heat gun -- and they stayed intact.
