This is a pretty easy modification. Expected time to completion is approximately 15 minutes.
Materials Needed: Dental floss or fishing line, a hair dryer, a clean rag, and some paint friendly cleaner.
In the pictures below, we see the emblems that will be removed. It would be advisable to do this on a warm day, because it will make your job a lot easier.
Take a hair dryer, NOT a heat gun, as this may hurt your paint. Hold the hair dryer approximately 2 inches from the emblem that you want to remove and hold it there for about a minute or two. You will know when its ready to be removed, because it will wiggle up and down slightly.
Take a piece of waxed dental floss ( I used mint favored ) and slide it behind the badge. Then slide it up and down. Fishing line can be used in place of floss. Depending on how hot it is outside, you may need to re-heat the badge with the hair dryer again. Just go ahead and leave the floss in while doing this.
Once you have slid the floss through to the other side, the emblem should just pull off without any force. Once you have it off, you will need to use the hair dryer again to heat up the glue that's left over.
Once the glue is warm enough, take your index finger and rub the glue off.
One you have rubbed the majority of the glue off, take a clean rag, and rub the remaining glue off. Make sure that you don't use the same spot on the towel for too long, otherwise you will just be rubbing the glue into itself. To help you out, you can use a paint friendly cleaner such as a Road Oil and Tar remover. These products should be available at your local Canadian Tire or Auto store for about 10 dollars.
There, now the emblem is off, and you have a nice and clean look. Now repeat this for the Toyota Emblem on the other side of the License Plate
. Follow the same steps. The only difference is because its bigger, you may have to heat it up a few times.
Here is a picture of the finished product.
