Custom Badge Work

Hello My Tacoma Brotherin,

Ok, well i first wanna apologize for the pics, my girlfriend dropped my camera in a mudd pit while playing mudd vollyball, so i had to use my cell phone camera.

so, after reading one of the many debadging post here on the TW, i decided to debadge my truck. after taking all the decals off my truck, i got a wild hair and decided to just do my own badgework.

tell me what you think? I have gotten many compliments and i think they look pretty good, but the final test comes from you... my fellow tacoma brothers.

so be honest..

Honestly.......it really doesn't do it for me. I'd leave it debadged. Good job trying something different though.

I like small stuff like that, that only a taco owner would notice if they were to see it.

I think you did a great job. IMHO, whether I would do them or not doesn't matter.

Also, thank you for all you did for our country. Itís because of you and all our veterans that we have the freedoms we enjoy today!

That Purple Heart is the symbol of sacrifice! And gets my respect whenever I see it!!

LET FREEDOM RING!!!

hello,

well i used a bonding cement, but i wouldnt recommend it. 3M makes a emblem glue that is made for that sole purpose. You can find it at any local auto shop.

The cement was messy and left a gap in between my truck and the emblem.

hope it helps you out, and if you have any more questions... im here.
