    How many coats did you spray on? I put 8 coats on my badges over a year ago and they are holding up well.

    Hey, looking good! I actually started this process earlier this week as well. So far I've only done 1 Tundra badge and the grille.

    Curious, what did you use to get the plasti-dip from inside the letters? Getting it out of the "R" and the "A" is a bit tricky.

    I used a wooden skewer, wooden tooth pick would work too, but skewer was longer and easier to hold (IMO).

    I waited 20 minutes in between coats and the final before peeling it. Don't worry about messing it up. If you do, you can always peel it off and do it again. One of the most important parts is to clean the badge with alcohol (I used denatured alcohol) and allow to dry before spraying. Good luck on your project!

    Yea, I was fairly amazed how easy it was to work with. I wanted to try a particular color on a badge and put 7 coats on it. The end result look really good, but I didn't like the color I picked. After drying, it was super easy to peel off without a trace. Now for a new color.

    A little of this and a little of that.
    I’ve had my badges plastidipped for about 3 years now and a few of the corners on a couple of letters are coming off, hardly noticable. I may re-do them as that’s how the truck came when I bought it and I want to do it right. The plastidip isn’t thick enough IMO.

    I waited 20 -30 mins between coats, and prolly 30 mins after last coat to start pealing. I was worried also, but just do it...you’ll be surprised at how stupidly easy it is

    Thank you that would be great how long have you had your wheels. A buddy has them on a Ford crew cab so it was hard to imagine how they would look on a Tundra. I have fuel hostage wheels and I am starting to have trouble with the finish and fuel is a pain in the A** to get a hold of or contact you back horrible customer service. So thought about going with those thanks again.
