Debadged the Car

Okay, I went ahead and debadged my 2005 Celica GT...looks so much cleaner with the tinted windows and S2000 antenna.

The only minor annoyance was finding that on the front cowl the toyota badge left two holes and a small ridge from the upper portion of the emblem...but with some really nice high gloss wax, it looks good.

With the new stereo system, its time to take a break.

RECAP: In one month of ownership= tinted windows, S2000 antenna, XM radio, Pioneer Radio and 6 Disc changer, K & N Air Filter and debadged.

You will have to cut and paste to see the link.

The rear looks like all Celica rears debadged, so no need to show it.

Yeah, I'd like to de-badge mine, but I'm holding off because of the holes.

You should go all the way like I did & do this to the rear. Then only way to tell what kind of car it is( look at registration). Don't have a pic but put black vinyl circle over steering wheel logo of Toyota.

No, becuase it looks clean, and when waxed, nothing interupts the nice nice paint.
