    Not a bad idea. If I had the time and the know-how I'd already be selling 'em. If they are reasonably priced I think you could make a killing.

    I'm wondering if this is what went wrong with mine. We've had a bit of a cold snap come through here in the last week. Because I made sure all areas were clean (cleaned twice) and dry (sat overnight).

    Same problem for you then? Haha! Any pointers? I'm kinda stumped at this point. Everything I can find says, "just clean it real good and make sure it's dry."

    I had the same issue when I did mine. Took me 1 try on the door emblems and 5 tries for the tailgate emblems. On the final try I cleaned them with a degreaser then rubbing alcohol then I took a blow dryer and a q-tip and made sure they were dry around the edges and inside the letters that needed it.

    No need with Plasti-Dip. just mask off the perimeter around the emblem, and once you have that thick coat sprayed just peel off the excess. works like magic.

    The travel expense is too high. The closest HD from me is 4 hours away. I wish we had one local. We do have a Lowe's. I'll check them. Thanks.

    Bob

    ETA: Bingo. Lowe's has it in stock for $5.98. Thanks for the suggestion!
