    Question, what are ya'lls thoughts on using Line-X vs Plasti-dip for badges. I plan on removing all of the badges and doing one or the other and then replacing some (I force has to go for good lol). What say ye?

    Plastidip seems to hold up pretty well on badges, and you can leave them on to do it (much easier than taking them off).

    Yup, what they said. No need to remove the badges with plastidip. Also Plastidip is durable enough for badges.

    Line-X will hold up better and be permanent, but the extra effort may not be worth it.

    How permanent do you want them to be? Line x will certainly last you longer. But it's a pain to take it off if you change your mind, haha.
