    If people are okay with that and the paint holds up doesn't seem like a bad idea to me.

    I just added the vinyl inlays for the TOYOTA emblem (PN 75311-90K00-Not included) in my store at https://www.ebay.com/itm/183186846419. They are $18 plus shipping and are available in colors that complement the paint colors. The color pictured here is the medium grey metallic, which is similar to the color of the OEM TRD Pro Grille color.

    That silver emblem is the ticket right there....How are the emblems applied? just some double sided tape?

    Yeh that silver lettering looks clean.

    The emblem comes with pegs attached to the back of it so one way to mount it is drill holes into the grille and then epoxy the pegs from the back side. The other way is jsut cut off the emblems and like you said either some apply some double sided tape or epoxy.

    You have the resources to make a complete custom grill but cant design/make a TSS sensor bracket? I know it's not seen... but set of home depot angle brackets and cut up plexi doesn't do it justice IMO.

    I asked bamf about same thing for his grills...His response was he didn't want to get caught up in the liability of it failing, due to his design and Toyotas requirements. At least he is offering some sort of a solution...also the added time and cost would prob put the price at that not so desirable rate

    Is it possible to have the grill pre drilled for the emblem? I could see myself messing that up .

    I get what you mean but it's a prototype for testing purposes. I want to keep this thing as simple as possible, the end result will look a lot cleaner and you're right you'll hardly be able to see it. It'll get the job done and be plug and play.

    I'd be happy to do that but it seems like there's a couple different versions of the emblem where each one looks the same but the pegs are in a slightly different place so I wouldn't know where to drill the holes. What might be the best way to go about mounting the Toyota badge is you can just cut off the pegs and use some epoxy/JB Weld to mount it to the surface.

    Will these letters fit directly on the flat area of your grill (without the emblem), or are they slightly too tall?

    Doesn't look bad at all with just the vinyl and no logo.

    @watkins303, @rrentrop, do you have any example photos with either gloss or matte black letters installed and no logo? I've looked through the threads here and did't find any good shots

    @jay_zed unfortunatley I don't have any photos of gloss or matte black letters installed with out the logo. The closest thing I have to what you're asking for is black reflective vinyl but not in the Toyota Lettering like in these pics:

    @watkins303 actually that example with the black reflective vinyl does help. Thanks

    I don't know about all Land Cruiser emblems. This one is specifically for PN 75311-90K00 (also known as BJ70), but if you Google this part number you will find all the vehicles it was installed on.

    Will it fit this emblem? This is the one that I currently have on my car, but to be frank, what I received was not what is seen in this vendor's picture. I am not sure that my emblem is even for the BJ70. The plastic on my emblem extends beyond the "T" and the "A". However, this is the vendor that sold the part and part that I bought according to my order history.


    How about this? Can I just buy a "T" from you? If it works out, I will buy a full set at a full price including an additional "T".
