    This was mentioned in the New Members area and I'm sure it will be over looked by a lot of people here and it shouldn't. Instead of removing our Tacoma emblems to paint them black a new member mentioned a process of spraying plasti-dip on our emblems w/o having to prep or remove. I just finished this DYI and it came out perfect. Here is the link to how to do it.

    Wow, I've been thinking about doing this for a while. Anyone here have any experience with it?

    It looks too easy!

    I don't think it would come off that easy or people wouldn't be spraying their rims, nerf/step bars, light bars etc with it. Well what is the loss, i'll do it with 3 coats if it works great. If not I'll go the longer route of painting them.
