    I'm partial to either black, or no badges. Haven't decided which way I want to go. I'd look to buy them already black, and then plasti-dip any I couldn't find.

    I did the overlays. For a sausage fingered clumsy gorilla like myself, it was the easiest option for me. So far so good.

    I bought a set of black badges off ebay for about $100. Worth it in my opinion.

    I went with buying the badges. If you don't get the plasti dip right, you'll be redoing it down the line. I found the entire black out badge kit on e-bay for $99 plus free shipping.

    Plastidip. Then if you don't like it, rip it off.

    I dipped all of my badges out behind the fire station one day. They all came out awesome and no bugs or dust.
