    I did a search for this but came up empty.

    My question is really a two parter:

    First: Has anyone successfully removed the clear plastic cover on the grille emblem, in order to affix their own graphics in the place of the toyota logo? And then reassembled it with the clear plastic for a semi-factory look? Tips on the dissection process?

    Second: Did customizing the emblem interfere in any way with the radar sensor?

    My hope is to put my business logo in the place of the toyota logo. B79D3791-9DB2-4709-8934-B3F3ED9366E8.jpg

    Some service related business near me has a fleet of 2018+ SR’s and they replaced the Toyota emblem with their company logo. If they got it to work with tss, it should work for you. Plus, the sensor will usually adjust to changes. You may be able to remove the emblem by removing the grille, removing the sensor, and unclipping the pins/clips holding in the sensor garnish.
    Here’s is my oem sport grille with tss (I currently run the pro grille):

    I’m interested in this as well. The emblem seems to be ABS with a clear outer. Looking at it, I’m not sure how they would come apart (not easily is my guess), but I’m betting you could definitely stick a vinyl logo over it and not affect it.
