    IMO the easiest way is to pullem off and paint em. That Plastidip shit is for the birds. I tried and derped it........

    But if you must... I still have a can and half of that crap left, you can have it.

    I would take them off and paint them, plasti dip is like putting lipstick on a pig. Mark the badge location on the truck with masking tape. Grab some of your favorite solid filament heavy duty fishing line and a pair of gloves, the emblems come right off, with some grunt work, light heat from a heat gun can help.

    Then scuff, prime, paint, clear coat and use 3m double sided foam tape to reapply.

    This will last a lifetime. Or just take them off, like me. :D

    I'll take it :D


    Plasti-Dip works great, it just takes a LOT of patience to apply It to all your decals. I figured pulling them off and putting them back on would be a much bigger pain in the ass. I've used Plasti-Dip on my emblems, door handles, and wheels

    The only time ive messed up with it is when i was covering a huge area and i oversprayed a little, but that was it so far. Just like spraypaint but with a hint of rubber/plastic :)
