    Figured i would share as a new thread.
    Got my kit today. Tried using the water drop method that they recommend. It's not necessary. In fact it prevents the glue from sticking very well, even though i used just a TINY bit. I took the piece off. Wiped the camera dry. And it stuck with no issues. I used custom cut pieces of electrical tape to tape over the lettering first, then put the skin over the top. I think it turned out great, you can still see the type of camera, but its still blacked out.
