    Has anyone debadged their Tundra? Are the badges held on by glue or rivets?

    I want to replace them with the blacked out trd pro badges. Do they come with new adhesive on them?

    It's like a 3M adhesive material. After you debadge, which some heat and fishing wire will do well with, just rub away the bit of excess glue residue and away you go.

    Dip is a great inexpensive option as well. Both my Tacoma and previous Tundra had dipped badges and held up without any issue. I went with 7 coats however and light applications to reduce chance of runs/drips.

    I just pulled all of mine off except for the 5.7 badge. It looks bad ass without anything on the back...

    It's just glued on. I went the old dental floss and heat gun trick. :cool:

    Awesome. $9 of plastidip vs. $150 for new badges. Thanks for the tips, I'm doing it now.

    what type of glue did you use to put them back on? I'm thinking about doing this to my sunset bronze tundra. How many coats of plastidip and is that just bought at Home Depot and such?

    Not sure, considering taking the sr5 ones off and leaving the tundra and 5.7 badge and blacking those off. Curious how they would be reapplied, like what adhesive.

    Oh okay, nice. No issues with it leaking through the blue tape? Just worried about hitting the side of truck or leaking through.

    Hey Rob_08, check this out. You don't need to pull the badges off. I did 7 thin coats and the over spray I did have came off with a terry cloth towel. Clean the chrome with alcohol first. I've had on my truck for 2 years now and still looks great!

    Awesome, came out great. Just used the plastidip? Did you wait to clean it off with the terry or do it between every coat?
