    I have seen a lot of posts on debadging your Tundra using a heat gun and dental floss or fishing line, but what does one use to replace the badges? Say you have your badges dipped, what kind of adhesive does one use to put them back on?
    Thanks

    If you are going to plastidip your badges, than just leave them on! It is a really easy process. Grab a few newspapers and tape off the surrounding area. Leave about an inch of the paint showing all the way around the badges. Hit em with about 5 coats and wait a few minutes and then the excess dip peels right off when you are removing the tape/newspapers. You can use a toothpick to get the leftover plastidip out from around the letters.

    Much easier than removing them and then reapplying.

    I taped mine off, and then removed mine with a blow dryer and heavy fishing line...
    I applied black spray paint (exact black Toyota uses) on mine and cut out double sided tape and re-applied inside of the tape area.

    That's a good idea. Since I plan to plastidip my corner bumpers to match my TRD Pro grill, or go along with it anyway, using the same color and paint on the badges would create a nice consistency. I appreciate the input.

    If you are going to go that route, 3M makes some good double sided tape to use for that project. Not sure how easy it is to cut, but can't be too bad. Good luck!

    Just picked up the Gorilla Tape, mostly because I bear a striking resemblance to the cover photo ;)

    Some Mods :) See build thread for details
    3M extreme for auto badges is the best.
