It's not that I don't love little badges cluttering up the back of the FJ, but they are going :D

So far I already cleaned off the left side, and i'm moving to the right after I post this.

here's a little pic of the left side debadge


and here's a little cell phone pic of the afterwords



I only left on the FJ, I may take it off later, but i'll just leave it on for now.

Also with the trail team badge for sale, i'm sorry but i was planning on keeping it. I'm thinking about putting it on whatever new bumper front or rear that i will get eventually.. not that the mod bug bit me or anything.. cough..

ahh yeah, i'm just getting into the clean her up visually stage, i'm thknking a paint of that rear tow hitch thing next
I just did mine today actually. There are four bolts, and four snap tabs on the top. Just give it a good pull after removing the bolts and it comes right off. Sand it, tack cloth it, adhesion promoter, 3 coats of flat black, done.

ACTUALLY, you remove it from the FJ and it is fine to drive without it. So your dad can still take it while you paint/ let it dry. And procrastinating would be not doing something, last time i checked, you would be painting, therefore, working :cheers:

SO what are you waiting for.:bigthumb:

If you can still get to an Autozone, pick up some sand paper, and then i have used and will continue to use duplicolor clear adhesion promoter (2coats) and the 3-5 coats of krylon fusion (for plastics) in flat black. This is what i have used for all the pieces i have painted black. Post some pics when you get done.
