So how are you guys doing this what is the method, type of paint etc?
One way, I think the best, is to remove the badge from the fender/tailgate, scrap off all the double stick tape, and press the black part out off the chrome piece. Paint away, then reinstall with 3M double stick tape. Get the heavy duty kind made for badges/emblems/logos. Blowes and Home Despot both sell it. It's the one with the red backing. When you go to reapply, clean the area with alcahol, then take a heat gun or hairdryer to the area where the badge goes, and heat it up a little, then while still warm, stick it on, and press firmly for a few seconds. The heat seems to help adhere the tape to the car paint.
