2015 Tacoma Badge Work

Has anyone taken their Toyota and Tacoma badges off of the tailgate and doors? Are they pinned or are they just stuck on with double sided tape? I'm thinking of plasti-dipping mine black. I have a Barcelona Red DCLB and thinking of either removing the badges fully or painting them black. looking to do a blackout. Wheels will be the last to go dark.

Thanks

I took mine off last weekend with a hair dryer and dental floss. They are simply stuck on and the adhesive comes off quite easily.

I used a plastic putty knife with soap and water and put the putty knife under each letter after spraying it and wiggle the knife and they come right off , but keep the paint wet so you dont scratch

This, also gasoline on a shop rag also helps eat/ loosen the adhesive material.

Could anyone tell me the underlying color of the badges? What color plastic are they molded in?

Pretty sure it is light grey under the chrome. I can check later to see if I have some blasted unfinished in the shop.

That is unfortunate. Soaking chromed plastic in pure Purple Power for 20 minutes will completely de-chrome it. I was hoping these were black underneath.

That would be the easiest route, but I think even if they were black you would still have to paint it. It would be a real cheap "plasticy" looking black, just like the white or grey is usually somewhat translucent off-color, not bright solid white or grey.

If you plan to take them off and put them back on, make sure you mark the locations before you take them off so you get them in the right position afterwards.
