    I’m wanting to paint my emblems a lime green to match my underglow and decal, I figured out how to take them off and put them back on but I’m wondering what kind of paint would be the best for them because I don’t want the paint to chip over time and I have to keep reapplying paint, any suggestions?

    Something like this? If you don’t like it you can always peel it off. But a rubber coating will be there for a good while. I’ve never plasti derp’d my emblems though, I prefer running naked. lol

    I put black decals over mine cause I wanted some of the chrome to still show since the rims are black and chrome. That’s always an option too. RenderedContent-A0451CE2-9F69-4F90-A442-B3A9E1E23190.JPG

    Goo gone, patience, and a good scraper works for decals.
    Fishing line and a heat gun work well for the emblems. They are on there pretty good but just take your time.

    Plasti dip my friend. It’s very forgiving and easy to use.

    Yes I left it on the truck. Used a toothpick to help pull out plasti dip in between the letters.
