getting rid of emblems

one quick question, are the emblems on the rear lid just adhesived on or do they have the little pegs on them, also can you take off the toyota symbol in the grill and just leave it like that??

You can, but I believe theres an indentation on the grill from where badge was. I may be wrong though.

You could pick up a front grill (no emblem) from www.grillcraft.com kind of expensive though.

As for the emblems just run a hair dryer over em, get some handy dental floss and kind of saw them off

Yeah, and no matter how much of an urge you have, dont use a knife no matter how carefull you think you are. It can make small scratches. as 5280vvti said, just pretend use the blow dryer, and pretend your flossing your teeth too the emblem.

Not to hijack this thread, but I debadged my new 04 and I have a big flat spot on the Hood where the emblem was. I've searched for a replacement and there's a TRD domed decal that's close, but still not exact as far as size goes.

I'm about to pain the toyota logo and stick it back on if I can't find anything else, that's why I was asking about an indiglo toyota logo or a black background domed toyota logo for the front...

Yeah I debadged and it was easier than I thought. Blow dry it quite a bit and then run the floss behind it. Then just kinda rub the rest of the glue left over until it's gone. DON'T USE A KNIFE. It helps if it's a warm day.

Hell, I didn't bother with the hairdryer for 30 seconds if that. Then I took a thin towel, put it over the end of a butter knife, slid it in and pulled up slowly. Every bit of glue came off w/the emblem since it wasn't hot so I didn't have to even clean it. Looked perfect instantly. happywink

Just buy a brand new stock emblem at your toyota dealer's parts dept. and paint it (you'll need plastic primer, before painting).

Here's how mine turned out:

If you're gonna do other exterior accents, this is actually a relatively cheap one to do idunno

just so everyone knows, if you have an 02 with a action package, the front badge can be removed without taking off the bumper or grill. a little patience is all you need to pop the fasteners off the back. success at last!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! thumbsup thumbsup thumbsup thumbsup grin grin grin smile smile smile goodtimes cheers
