    No prep work bsides cleaning the area with soap and water then drying it. Make sure you do it in about 65+ degrees for the beat results. After it all dried it looks great! But afte I took some of the tap off and really got to looking I can see a couple tight areas that I missed a little bit so I'll be touching it up tomorrow..

    P.S. Heck yeah dipped my cats as well.! Helps protect their fur and keeps them clean as a whistle!!

    I also like my homo monster sticker, also just added my tacomaworld.com sticker as well! Looks great

    I just did this to my grille. Wanting to see how it will last in 100+ summers we have here then I'll do my front and rear bumpers. Its looks awesome on my truck and looks good on yours too. I'm doing my badges this weekend :)

    I just took mine off, but i plan to do the satoshi mod soon. And painting the grill surround. The emblem sticks out like a soar thumb when everything is blacked out.
