    I just "debadged" the truck. Everything went well, although my finger tips are burnt and there is aton of old adhesive under my fingernails.

    All the badges came off quite easy with some fishing string a heat gun. Plus some goo-gone.

    On the badges on the driver side of the truck however some of the adhesive was left on and no matter what I do, I can't seem to get it off.

    I have tried picking at it with the fingernail, as well as some light rubbing with more goo-gone, and even a little more heat with the gun, but no results.

    The spots are minimal, but I would like to get rid of them

    other wise it lookks just fine

    p.s. if anyone is interested in some badges, iahve almost all of the badges, and letters and numbers still intact. I'll give 'em to you for free, but you have to pay for the shipping.:D

    here's what I am talking about

    it's not bad but easily visble, and basically the only spot where it's visible.

    P.S. any tips on removing that TRD sticker?

    Pretty much the same thing happened to me. What I did was use a Rubbing Compund. Used by hand, not really needed a machine. Then after all was said and done, I applied some Wax, since the surface wasnt really scratched or anything.

    Also, the pic those look like there is still pieces and not just glue from the tape they use to place the stickers. You can just remove that first with your fingers or nails being careful and then do the above method.

    Hope that helps.

    since we have both rubbing alcohol and baby oil in the house ( don't ask :jerkoff:) I'll give them a try and if that fails then I go the paint striper wheel route). It's just that little spot though, all other spots came out fine with a ltitle more heat and some leverage from the finger nail. Although I think on the spot Imay have "cooked" the glue somewhat leaving the heat gun on it for much longer than the other spots.

    To those of you interested in the badges: Both badges on the doors are in intact in fine shape as well as the letters from "T O Y O T A, T A C O M A" on the rear bed gate. " p r e r u n n e r" is missing a "n" and a "e", but other wise it's all still there. sADLY THE "SR5" on the driver's side didn't make it:eek:. Postage would be under six bucks to anywhere in the continental 48 using USPS, if interested let me know

    Do not use paint stripper! Go down to any auto store and pick up some silicone wax remover (wax and grease remover) it comes in a metal gallon container, and it will take anything off of anything - Without effing up the paint. I grew up in a collision shop, and swear by the stuff.
