    How do you take the badges off and back on again? I am interested in doing it.

    You dont need to with plasti dip. But if you do use a hair dryer and fishing line then reapply them with 3m double sided tape

    Looks good everyone. Here's a little pressure washing. No lift, no discoloration. I love the stuff.

    Thanks. It was my first time using the stuff and it was simple. There were a few spots inside the 'O' for instance that didn't peel well. In a case like that just start over!

    That is the matte black. It doesn't really look black in the picture though.

    That's what was throwing me off, it looks grey.

    You just spray the whole thing. i gave my badges 5 coats. after it is completly dry, use a tooth pick to peel an edge inside the 'O'' and 'A'. ive found you have to go a little light in these spots with the dip. if you go to heavy the dip will bond to the door and the badge and the gap between the two will not "self-cut" the way it is supposed to.
