    Didn't remove them. Just mask off around them leaving about 3/4" space around the emblem. I sprayed 4 coats. The first being a light one then building it thicker each time. I waited about 12 minutes between coats. Once dried, the dip on the truck will peel right off if you put it on thick enough. The dip inside the "o" in Toyota for example can easily be be removed with a toothpick and won't scratch your finish. Very easy to do. Good luck

    It looks good and all, but wouldnt the tail pipe cook the shit out of that plast dip???

    I would think if anything you would use a hi heat grill paint or something. I like the looks and have a can of dip lying around, but that just seems like a bad idea...

    Been on there for more than six months and looks like the day I first put it on. I had the same question but saw it on a youtube vid so I gave it a try. Like I said, no problems. Had the dip left over after doing the emblems so I gave it a shot. Can always come off if it didn't work.

    It's easiest in my opinion if you take them off. If you choose not to you will need to tape up the brake caliper.

    Very nice. I was actually thinking of doing my FJR. Did you tape everything off or did you remove all the panels? Also, is it rattlecan or an actual painters gun? Thanks for any input!

    i rattle canned it, used a bigger nozzle, and used a spray handle on the can.

    i taped everything off (couldnt find my set of screw drivers lol and allen wrenches), wasnt bad at all. i missed one spot a few times so some blue still shows through if you look real closely, and on the front tire cover on the back side the blue is showing because its hard to get a good coat back there.

    but not a big deal, ill leave it like this for a few weeks and i want to try an army green or camo brown next

    Just ordered up a kit to plasti-dip the whole truck. Anyone used, or know where to buy the Plasti Dip Primer?
