Welcome. Before you post next time search but to answer your question yes many people plasti dip their emblems. Here is an entire thread on plasti dip. It's not hard to do just try it your self there are many videos on YouTube that you can watch that will show you what to do.

OP you will see my posts in that other thread where I derped my plastidip. Seems it may have been too cold outside when I done mine, but it DID NOT turn out well. I tried to peel it all off and start over and even peeling it off wound up being a PITA. I said "SCREW THIS" I went and got some high test fishing line and took my side emblems completly off and at that point was finally able to get all the plasti dip off of em. Once cleaned off wich was the hard part I applied some 3M double sided adhesive stuff using and exacto knife, then I layed my chrome emblems in the garage floor on some news paper and spayed them with paint and not the dip shit (hehe dip shit LOL). IMO it turned out looking a lot better this way.

Anyhow, didnt mean to ramble on like that.... Good luck on your dippin.....
