Badge, Front Logo Removal & Painting - How To
Removal & Painting of The Front Toyota Logo - A Quick How-To Guide
By Isaac DeCoursey @ EverythingCelica.com


Remove your front bumper, unscrew the front grill from behind and then pop out the entire grill w/emblem.
https://www.celicahobby.com/forums/...ont-Logo-Grill-Removal-How-To-00-02.html

Now you have two choices;

A) you can take your chance by trying to heat up the glue WITHOUT melting the plastic, and take the chrome emblem off

OR

B) Buy a whole new grill for $30 and emblem for $11. You can paint the new emblem for $4 or just get them colored from Toyota for $42 (they call them "gold package", but the emblems are still plastic and come in several different colors)


I decided it wasn't worth trying to take apart the one I had, so instead I went with (B) and bought a new one and painted it the color I wanted...

hey isaac, do you have a link where I can buy just the grill without the emblem. I have the lower 2002 grill from TRD and i want something that would match that, but I don't want the emblem...

Or if genuine OEM is what you're after, visit your favorite Toyota parts department.
Here are the Toyota part numbers to help with that... thumbsup
