    I'm sure most ppl know how to do this and there are tutorials somewheres...but figured I would document my little mod anyways. I de-badged the taco and used some krylon fusion flat black to paint the badges. I cleaned the badges with alcohol and then wiped them down again and sprayed them up. I used an entire can and I was able to apply 4 coats with 10 - 12 minutes in between each coat. I also decided not to re-use the sr5 and v6 badges and in their place I would mount a 4x4 badge from the tail of a tundra.

    Took about 2 hours overall to remove the badges with a heat gun and remove all the glue.

    Put 3m double sided exterior tape on the back sides of the badges and then re-applied the badges
