I Just Reread My Orig Post and Now Understand This Questions

I Have Made An Edit and Moved the "Cut Up The Letter" Procedure Down Three Procedures. Obviously Cutting the Letters Apart as the 1st Procedure, Really Would Make It A Tough Job to Keep All The Letters Straight.


This Should Alleviates Any Confusion.


Sorry

Thanks. I Hadn't Even Given That Image A Thought.
Flashy, Gawdy, Outlandish, or Aggressive Looking Is Not My Style.
I've Been Aimin' To Keep It Subtle.
Subtle Passes Cruisers At 80, Invisible.

hahaha No, your truck isn't gay, just messin' around.

My mom used to vacation on the Cape, she grew up in Worcester.

She used to tell me how P-town weirded her out.

But ya, your satoshi, emblem work, and truck look killer.

P-Town

Thanks for Clearin' That Up For Me.
So Then, You Were Actually Tryin' To Set Me Up for a "YES" Answer

P-Town's At The End of the Earth, About 60 Miles from Me, Which in Time, Convert to:
1hr Travel in the Winter
3hrs Travel in the Summer (If You're Lucky, *%#~*#!&* Tourists)
It's Dead in the Winter (Frozen Sand, Narrow Empty Streets, Tight Knit Populous, A Few Restaurants)
It's Ah, Ah, Ah......... Different in the Summer (Breezy Beaches, Narrow Packed Streets, The World's Population is There, Plenty of Places to spend Money)
Everyone Should Visit Once, You'll See Sights, You'll See No Where Else.
I'm a Native, and Have Worked There a Few Times, and Gone With My Lady Who Used to Like to Shop The Boutiques for Unique Cloths. Glad She's Gotten Over That. SPENSIVE!!!
Anyway, Nothin' to Be Weirded Out About, Nobody Bothers You Down There, Unless You Go Lookin' To Get Bothered.

Glad You Liked The Truck, and Thanks for the Comments.
Enjoy Your Summer

Having your mods color coded really sets your truck apart from the others. I love it. Job well done!

Sorry, I've Done My One! And It Took More Than Two Month To Complete and I Still Have Some Loose Ends. Got Some Small Bubbles Appearing In The Paint Where I Patched With Finishing Putty, and The Letters Will Be Getting Re-Painted, When I Have Time.
Don't Know What the Actual Man/Hours Would Be, a Couple Days Prob.
Lot A Waiting for Coats Or Glue To Dry, Lots Of Sanding.
Never Got It Perfect, If You See It Up Close

So Give It A Try, IT'S Not Rocket Surgery !
Take Your Time. Tend To Details
When Done, You'll Think "I Dun Good"
Think of The Increase In Self Esteem
The Swollen Head
The Women Fallin' All Over Your Truck
And Your Fellow TW Members Sayin' "What, Another One ?"

Do It

As Stated In The Post Before Yours, I Couldn't Find Time to Do My Own.
And I Wasn't Satisfied With My Work, So I Wouldn't Do Someone Else's
As Posted Above, It's Not "Rocket Surgery", Just Time consuming.
You Should Give It a Try. I'll Post Some Links Below. One's a Grill Service.
Try the Search Function.
As a Last Resort, Start a New Thread, Asking for Someone to Do It,
As This Thread is a Bit Old and Not Being Hit Much.
This Thread Covered Only The "Separate Letters Emblem" for The Grill,
As The Grill Production Was Pretty Well Covered In Other Threads.
There's a Lot of Variations. Buy a Cheap Grill & Work On It While Leaving Stock Grill On.
Make Sure You Keep Us All Posted as to Your Progress and Post Pics When Complete.
Good Luck

Page 7, Post #122. I Edited It Too Many times



What You See, is Not What You Get....................Off The Shelf.

OEM TOYOTA Emblem, Radiator/Grill - Toyota Part 75311-90K00 (1986 Toyota Land Cruiser Emblem) from Toyota Parts Zone.com
$41.49 Shipped a month or two ago. Found Here:

http://www.toyotapartszone.com/1986/...ame-plate.html

Been trying to find time to post pics and a write up.

Short Story ?: Emblem = 1 Piece

EDIT: Moved "Cut Letters Apart" Procedure, Down Three Procedures
Sorry, Just Answered a Question About Letters Not Being Crooked.
Now I Know Why He Asked

Fill Voids in Back of Emblem Letters (Flush) with Epoxy.

Mark Letter Backs while Taped in Position on Mesh
(Leave the Painters Tape Outline in Place and Somehow Mark the Mesh Holes where the Screws Go.
I Marked around Each Hole with Black Magic Marker, It Showed Up a Deep Blue/Purple around each Hole when Mounting )

Drill (On Press with Depth Stop) and Tap (with Bottoming Tap) for 4-40 Stainless Steel Screws. Three Screws each Letter, Four in "O's".

Cut Letters Apart, Cut Out Centers of "O's" and Triangle in "A". File Edges to Match Bevel, and Sand.

Sand, Spray Prime, Spray Paint Black, Couple Coats. (I Also Sanded, Primed, Painted, and Seal Coated Backs of Letters)

DO NOT DO THIS: BRUSH Paint Silver Outline With Small Brush (It's Taking to Long, Rushing, Patience is a Virtue) Doh!

Do This Instead: Tediously Tape Off to Spray Paint Silver Outline (Just the Rabbited Step)

Spray Seal Coat X 3 or more

Screw to Grill Mesh from Behind as follows (from Screw Head)

Screw Head / #4 SS Lock Washer / #4 SS Washer / #6 Plastic Washer / Mesh / #00 Rubber Faucet Washer / Letter - Don't Over Torque

That's the Short Story, Hope I Didn't Miss Anything

BTW I Don't Take Credit for the Separated Letters TOYOTA Emblem, This is a variation of Similar I've Seen on TW. "Search". I'd have to go back and find the member(s) that are due the credit. I Will If I get around to a Write Up

TIME, Our Most Precious Commodity.

















Yeah, I Know. Maybe Shoulda Cured the Epoxy Longer.
It Appears to Have Lost It's Bond Around the Drill Hole
(Happened While Being Drilled. Tapping Didn't Improve It!)
It's The Reason I Sealed the Backs. More Sanding on Back Mighta Helped
I've only gone 100 Miles or So, But They Haven't Loosened At All














Sorry, No close-Ups allowed
