de-debadging

ok, having no badges was cool...untill people at the track were saying stuff to me like "your times are a lot slower than i expected for a GTS to run". so now i want to put back on my GT emblem. could somebody masure how far the badge is from the bottom, and how far it is from the right side of the hatch trunk thing, because i want it to be in the exact spot that the badge came on the car when it was stock. thanks. oh, and also, what do you guys recomend i use to re attatch the GT emblem on with?

15.41 @ 89.30mph 2.282 60'

is....04 srt4 stock

Reattach it with 3M adhesive tape, and if you look close enough, can you tell where the badge came off at?

Won't the paint be a little less dull under where the emblem used to be as opposed to the rest of the car?

Its probably about 1.5-2" from the bottom. Why not jsut put it where you think it looks best, or order a vvt-i emblem?

don't put that ugly chrome thing back on there.

Anyone who can't tell a GT from a GTS needs to get educated.

What I di d for a while was I cut the GT emblem in half and put the "G" on the left of the Toyota symbol and the "T" on the right side.

3M adhesive tape would be your best bet... the stock GT rims aren't so bad.. its alright actually they look like some
