You do not have to remove the emblems to plastidip them. Mask off a square around them and spray several coats (thicker the better) then just peel away what’s on the paint. It does not damage the finish.
Soft top does not go down all the way but I strap it down anyway so it doesn't move. The cover is marine grade vinyl. The cover is holding up nicely. Only issue I'm having is the bolts rusting but that's an easy fix.
To those that have the Tuffy tailgate lockbox I decided to try it without the plastic trim and it fits great. Removed the spacers and bolted right into place. A much cleaner look and I gained 2” in the back. Used rubber weatherstripping so there is no rattling.
