Advice on blacking out the tacoma emblems?

I'm well on my way to blacking out my 2002 Tacoma and I was wondering if anyone knows any ideas or tips on how to take off the "Tacoma, Toyota, SR5, and V6" decals so I can paint them flat black and be able to put them back on without messing up the decals or the truck's paint.

Thank you

the ones on the side next to the doors will come off with fishing line...the others are a rubber material and will probably tear up when you take them off...

buy some new ones to replace the tailgate ones with

Sweet. How should I take off the tailgate and the "SR5" decals below the rear passenger windows?

i think the tailgate and sr5 ones are self adhesive...some sort of glue on the back...the others need some double sided tape

Let me know how this goes and also how you in fact did deal with the tailgate ones. I wanted to do this, but wasn't sure about the TACOMA and SR5 and all the other ones that aren't connected.

theres also the option of painting them ON the truck...but thats not recommended...from experience...

ive pulled all my emblems off...youre not going to be able to reuse the ones on the tailgate and the b pillar sr5 ones...

either order some decals from sockmonkey...some new emblems from wherever you order parts from...or leave them off...

I'll probably just pull them all off then if that's the case. A cleaner look might be good, but I'm not sure if it'll show like faded marks or anything since my truck is almost 11 years old. Suggestions? Or am I just talking out of my ass again and it's nothing to worry about?

I took the tacoma emblem off on the side with some fishing line. the rear was done carefully with a razor blade and some THIN fishing line. I used 3m emblem adhesive. careful with that tho it makes your skin irritated.

So you were able to put the originals back on? Do you have a picture of your tailgate that you can post? Thanks.

I took about an hour with me and my buddy doing it. We used the razor blades to lift the corner and then carefully peeling it using the razor to lift the adhesive.
