That's strange. I did mine a couple of months ago and applied the paint in 4 thin coats in 30 minute intervals. I then waited an hour and went back out and applied 3 coats of clear to finish it off. I waited 4 days before sticking them back on the truck.

I can't think of why yours is cracking like that.

The same thing happened to me when I was painting my headlights black. I just sanded it down more and made sure it was clean. I repainted it with no problems after that

The back of most spray paint cans have a maximum level of humidity that they should be used in. The fact that it was raining and probably very humid might have something to do with it?

perfectionist!

I really like how my new black badges look but now I am wanting to paint everything that is already black on my truck to match my badges. Does anyone know if the krylon fusion sticks well to already painted metal?

hey, i have a white truck also and i just powder coated my rims black so i want to do something about the badges, the chrome looks to stock for me. I like the idea of blacking them out to match the rims but i saw this and i like this badge

http://www.amazon.com/TRD-Black-Chro.../dp/B0039N5C94

so i was thinking about taking all emblems off and putting this on the back. It would be nice to find a black chrome "tacoma" emblem for the sides though"

or should i buy 3 of these black chrome emblems and put one on the back and the other two where the "Tacoma" ones are? Any opinions?

I bought a chrome one off eBay for like 3 bucks. I am cutting the flag part off and painting it black.

You could go to the "photography" forum and ask this in the "photoshop" thread.

Don't be scare of the 3M tape. It is great stuff. I bought mine at an auto body supply store. I'm not familiar with any glues personally. Might be worth looking into.
