Debadging new tacoma

Hey, just got a new 09 Prerunner and after I peeled the dealers badge off there's a rub mark where the badge was. I tried goo-gone thinking it was maybe some leftover adhesive but it's still there. Short of buffing it out any easy ideas to fix it other than putting the badge back on?

Kind of hard to see in the picture but it does stand out from afar.

It was just some double-sided foam tape that I cut through with some fishing line. Then I got whatever was left when I was washing the truck. I got the paint protector coat as a deal when I bought it so maybe it didn't penetrate behind the badge?

I could not see the pictures. My bet is you did not get all of the adhesive off. Let the goo-gone soak into the adhesive, hold it on the area for a minute or so. I used my fingernail to remove the soft adhesive.

Be sure to clean it real good, and apply some wax.


Good luck

I have seen this:

Duck Adhesive Remover with the plastic scratcher work pretty well on removing the adhesive left by the badges. My bro did it on his Tundra and it didn't scratch the paint when he used the scratcher to help him scrub the leftover adhesive. They sell at Walmart in the auto section.

just rub it will goo gone it will come off. It takes a lot of rubbing. It will take the top layer of wax off also so once you get the adheasive off wash it really good and than use cleaners wax and it gets the last little bits of crap off. than put a nice thick layer of wax down and you will be good to go.

I probably wasn't putting enough elbow grease into it. I didn't think about it removing any wax so hopefully I can fix it up this afternoon, wax it, and report back.

Finally got around to cleaning it up; I had a busy weekend... I got all the leftover adhesive off, washed it, finished up with that toyota shield protector stuff and now it looks great. That stuff is amazing, there were some minor scratches in the area and it took them right out. I tried taking a picture of the area, but my tailgate it like a mirror now.
