    Yes. Very easy to do. I bought them off amazon.

    I'm about to put them on when it gets a little warmer. Any advice? Instructions say " if necessary lightly mist adhesive with clean water to allow slight adjustments". Did you do this?

    No I did not. Letters are 99% a perfect fit. I adjusted a couple letters before I really started pushing on them.

    I used a primer then PlastiDip in matte black and coated it a good 5-6 times. ImageUploadedByTaco Forum1491780390.332857.jpg

    I never thought of blacking out emblems while still on. I guess they're tough to pull off? Looks good either way, I guess you were careful to avoid overspray and cover all the orange.

    All these emblems on new vehicles are stickers. 80% of the time they will be broke attempting to pull them off. Even if you where successful and did not break them they wouldn't be as sticky. Painting them then sticking them back on probably isn't going to work without new adhesive. I'd be surprised if anyone on here was successful at pulling them off, painting them and putting them back on. Anyone??
