    I finally put on my blackout emblems and tailgate inserts. Everything was super easy but I hate the TACOMA letters. They are rubbery and anytime I wipe them with a cloth or anything they get lint on them like crazy. I am even afraid if I use a wash mitt there will be lint stick to them like crazy. Anyone else have this issue?

    I tried Plasti-Dip on the emblems and it was next to impossible to wash around as the wash mit would grab and get stuck, ended up going with the black overlays instead.
