    I am looking at blacking out my emblems on my 07 Tundra

    I dont know if I black them out if I should also do the grill/bumper and completely de chrome it

    Also what’s the best option for that, should I find a shop that can do it for me or should I just plasti dip it and hope for the best?

    Plastidip is incredibly easy. Don't pay someone else. You can't hurt anything. If you screw it up you just peel it off and do it again. I dipped mine 6 months ago and i abuse my truck on a regular. No scratches, flaws, nor imperfections. it was my first attempt at Plastidip and came out way better than expected. You can do all badges with 2 cans.

    Alright bet. How many coats did you use on it and how long did you let it dry before peeling?

    Alright sounds good
    I just don’t know if I should do it having my handles/mirror chrome unless I should wait to buy some in black
