Would this speed up curing process? Also, would it settle paint better like the bhlm in oven method?

I think you're better of letting cure on its own, just do a coat, wait 30 minutes, do another, repeat until you have as many coats as you want and let it dry on its own. Seems like a blow dryer might make the paint run it too wet. I just did 3 coats then stuck them in the over for about 3 minutes at 200 and they turned out great. I still have people ask me what shop I went to have it done at.

Sorry for all the questions, but you guys think the 3m dbl stick tape would ruin the paint if I removed the badges in the future?

I've never seen it ruin my paint so far and it's been a while and I've taken them off and put them on a lot.

Excellent write up! Did mine today in black following this and they came out pretty good. Almost don't notice them on the Timberland Mica paint.

So I've been lurking around here for about a month now... The mod bug has officially set in and this seems like the best way to kick off my modding journey. I'm thinking black badges and emblem, but kinda want to try camo tan plastidip. Might look pretty good against the MGM paint.
