Does humidity mess with applying plasti-dip? I tried to do my emblems today and they came out looking rough, almost like orange peel, sort of like a bed liner texture. And when I tried to peel the overspray off, the edges of the letters wanted to peel with it. I peeled it all off, I might try again when it is cooler and drier outside. It was 90 degrees with probably 80% to 90% humidity.

That's a good one. I would think so. Yes, try wait until your weather is better, if not find a garage with a garage door.

As far as a cure time, let them sit for a few hours before re-installing them and try not to get them too wet for a 24 hour period so the sealant has plenty of time to cure all the way. If sealed properly they won't leak for years. All in all, it can be done in a day.
Thats my only problem. Im stationed in Guam where it rains everyday and the humidity hovers in the 80-90% range. I wish I was in Vegas. Prolly way easier there. I figured id just find a reputable vendor.

Yup! I dipped some angry eyelids on my truck a few months back to see if I wanted to get eyelids. It turned out pretty good so I just kept it on, no fading or yellowing.

Not the best pictures, but you get the idea.
