Question badges

anyone know the best way to black out the badges? I'm looking to remove the door ones and black out the front and rear ones.

Simply go buy them in black at a Toyota stealership.
You need a VIN # off a black X-Runner.

Take a hand dryer and heat the badges then take a fine fishing line and run it behind it to take them off. Take all the adhesive from the back of the badges and wipe them clean. Get few cans of paint from walmart specifically for plastic and do a few coats with 10 minutes in between. Buy a roll of 3m tame (3m tape only) and attach to back of badges then take exacto knife and cut off access. Attach to truck.
