    ...but the whole idea behind dipping (opposed to legit painting) is you can mask, then peel the intentional overspray off the paint. If I were to remove badges, I'd be painting them with something other than PlastiDip.

    Not knocking your method, it just seems like extra steps for the same outcome.

    Thanks, I will start looking at that. I know the retrofit guys use some sort of silicone or something... I just can't seem to get my search terms right to return anything.

    Hhmmm...!

    I always wondered how that original buy ended up, I was going to participate but had to buy tires instead when stockers crapped out on me.

    Might have to take another stab...

    For anyone interested I've bought from @docloco before, very on top of things dude, he makes cool pack racks for your rear bullhead too. :thumbsup:

    :wave: Hi Loco!

    Try looking up windshield glue or adhesive or the like, another semi flexible but very strong bonding 'silicone' you may look for is betaseal.

    Good luck! :thumbsup:

    They use butyl rope then some run a bead of silicon on the outside lens edge. Retrofit source sells some or you can get it elsewhere. I’d stick with buytyl not some other random stuff. You need something that will heat back up and allow you to remove the lens later on if need be.

    Maybe... I wouldn't say extra just different steps. Removed badges instead of masking & reappling badges instead of removing masked areas. Plus no peeling over spray.

    Removed the bushings from the steering rack. What a PITA.

    I used Morimoto Retro Rubber on my retrofit builds, it's just a butyl cord that you can stretch out thin to fit the gaps, trim, etc and then heat prior to reassembly.

    No, no. It's all good Key. I didn't take it that way at all. I'm familiar with FRP, but I guess I'm getting old because I just never gave it a thought. A mind is a terrible thing to waste. :pray:

    Yeah, she moved there about 17 years ago now. Her husband was stationed at Greeley and now works as a Ranger for the National Park Service. He's up in Eagle most of the time. He flies back and forth in their plane a lot. Sis is a Federal employee and has bounced around to various bases around the country. She's retiring in March. She's unsure if they will stay there or not. I think she's trying to sway her husband to relocate to more temperate climate.
