I tried the hyper dip first. I did all the emblems and the hockey sticks on the side. They came out fine. It would take some serious rubbing to get them to peel so no worries on washing and running a chamois over them. The only thing I didn't like was the flat back color they were.
Then I decided to purchase a new set of badges, and door trim (the bent trim part comes as an assembly with the window) and painted them all with SEM Trim Black, prep and satin clear coat. SEM is a deep, rich black that looks far better to me. I put several coats of paint and clear on each part. The paint levels out beautifully as it dries. I suck at painting anything and these came out really nice. I even did it outside when it was like 55 degrees and with a breeze too.
I used dental floss and a hair dryer to warm the area and pop off all the badges. The AWD badge has no pins and is the easiest to remove. I chose not to reinstall the AWD for a cleaner look.
Personally if I had a white car I'd paint the badges white. I think black calls too much attention to them. That's just me.
I think I posted pictures in someone's thread about this. I know that I detailed all the pins on the badges. I personally wouldn't muck with peeling off old adhesive on the original badges and trying to get it look right. That stuff can get stringy and messy real quick. Some adhesives may also damage the paint/clear.
