    So I have a 2009 Tacoma, I removed my badges with fishing line and they came off perfectly except for what looks like the outline of my badge. I removed all the glue with goo gone but still has an outline. Its a very faint when you look at it but its still there. Anyone have this problem before and know what to do?

    will show yall a picture as soon as I get it sent to my email
    Thanks in advance

    Removed the wife's 07 4Runner badges. Same thing as yours just not as bad but very close. A professional detailer was able to get about 98% of it gone but if you look hard enough there is still an outline in some area's.
