Thanks so much for the DIY. . . did it with all of my emblems. I LOVE the way it looks on the front of the truck, but ever since taking the side and back emblems off I like how it looks without them. I'm now thinking of leaving them all off and just putting the red OEM TRD emblem on the back, a black TRD emblem on the grill and calling it a day.
If anyone is interested in some black emblems let me know. I haven't put the tape on the back yet, but can include it with them. I took them off, removed the adhesive, sanded them, cleaned them, coated them with adhesion promoting primer, then 3-4 coats of satin black, followed by 2-3 coats of matte clear (I wanted something in between satin and totally flat).
