Default Plasti Dip Bug Has Me !!!

So Ive been trying to find something to do to the ram because like most of us im always looking for something to mess with and make better. So i went out to the local lowes and got some plasti dip and painters tape and this is what i came up with. Emblems all the way around....i know most like to debadge completely but im giving this a try. I even threw some on my third brake light to see what it would look like and i think ill leave it for now untill i get time to get all my lights tinted. I think it makes the truck look alot better and im considering taking the grill apart this weekend and doing the insert black also. I LOVE THIS STUFF
Disreguard my truck being so dirty but its been raining like hell here for a few days

On the open letters and numbers like the 5 and the 4 in 4x4 when you peel it off if you do it carefully you can pull it out of there. In the 0 in 1500 R/A in RAM i took a tooth pick that has a sharp edge and a round edge and used the round edge to get it started and then grabbed the plasti dip with some tweezers and it just pulls right out.

Honestly nothing the masking and taping was it. I will see how it holds up this weekend I'll be driving about 250 miles this week and I'll give you an update than. Thanks for the complement about the truck.
