Thanks, it is super easy.

1) clean badge and then dry
2) tape it up, but leave enough space around the badge so you can pull the excess off (see pic).
3) shake bottle for 1 minute, and then lightly spray 4-6 times in a sweeping motion
4) wait around 20 mins, repeat - i did 4 coats
5) remove plasti-dip, comes off easy. use a toothpick for areas in the 3 and 5


if you want to see a great video on how to, click this:
