I've used fishing line before, works the same as dental floss. I wouldn't advise debadging though if you've had the truck for some time as you may run into discoloration of the paint and end up with "phantom badges."

Use fishing line, peel off residue/glue with your fingernail, clean up any remaining glue/residue with Goo-Gone.

Goo-Gone:
I'd consider waxing after using goo gone, too. I used it on my old Toyota and forgot to wax and it seemed as if I could always see it streaking a bit from that point on.

Debadge early so paint doens't fade and the paint under the badge becomes darker and more prominent.

I use 6 lb test line and Goo Gone spray. I pre-spray and let it sit to soften. Also, I do it on a warm day when adhesive is softer.

I have also inserted a wooden ruler to pry up and edge.

Immediately wash off all goo gone and wax vehicle. Sit back and relax and enjoy.

Mine came out perfect.

Once it's all debadged and the rear quarter decals are removed, the truck stands out because it is cleaner looking.

You know something is different with a debadged truck, and sometimes you can't put your finger on it, looking for more obvious mods.

The main benefit for me is having a uniterrupted/continious sheet of clean metal to was and wash. Just shows better once polished and waxed.

Everyone knows what the truck is, a Tacoma, so, no need to advertise for them. Indeed they should pay you to spread their name, by having the decals and badges on.

I removed everything from the V6, to the Toyota, Tacoma and even the TRD decals.
