    I decided to black out my badges on my TACO. I seen that everyone was posting write ups on how to do it so there was no reason for me too. I did take picture of them after they where done...:cool:

    is that textured flat black paint?
    thats exactly what I was going to do.

    which write up did you use to get badges off, and what did you use to stick back on?

    I forgot what write up it was. The texture is from painting them then baking for about 8min on 250 (I put about 4 coats which could also made that texture). I used a hair dryer to heat the badges up then I took some 20lb fishing string and worked it between the truck and each badge (once you do this you might have some emblem tape still on your truck you can remove it with either rubbing achol. or WD40). To put them back on all I did was buy some (3M) auto emblem tape to stick them back (which I think took the longest to do because of the cutting and peeling of the tape).
