whats your thoughts on debadging the truck/hatch for the celica? my wife and I saw a black 7th gen today that was debadged and she said 'wow I kind of like the no badge look, would you ever take your off?'." idk how i feel about the no badge look myself. My best friend takes all the badges off all of his cars( including his TC the day after he bought it new....) Yes, it looks clean but whats your thoughts on it?

i guess if i do it and dont like it i can always buy new ones from the dealer....
how wolud i take care of the imprint from the faded paint(i ASSUME the paint is still new looking under the emblems)

i would leave the toyota symbol in the center of the trunk lid...

Take them off, and send them to me in the mail. I'll gladly buy them. I hate mine without it's badges.

If it's a decal/sticker, loose it (like on the gen4).

I took off the dealer badge on my focus, and it looks way better.

One of the previous owners on mine partially debadged the car, So I have no trace of the word 'alltrac' anywhere and I think I'm missing the stenciled 'celica' on the trunk lid as well.

I personally like leaving the badges on older/more rare cars just so I can be like 'yeah, that's right I'm driving a car that you've never heard of before'

Every fart can ricer around here has debadged their civic, and replaced the normal silver H logo with the red one and they all look like shit.

Leave the damn badges on!

I'm most likely going to remove all that lettering on the spoiler there. If it's a decal badge, I say ditch it. If it's an emblem type, keep it.

don't forget if you take the toyota logo off you will have 2 or 3 holes. The toyota logo isn't just a stick on

That's a great looking car - I never realized how different the 90 was from the 91-93.

I'm with 4thGenCelli - if it's a factory metal badge I want it - but no "stick on" decals.

Also - any and all dealer badges definitely come off.

Yeah, the adhesive is a pita. But I dig the look. I took my "Celica" badge that's like yours and stuck it on the panel lid of my 7th gen (for sunglasses or whatever). Definitely spiced up the otherwise boring panel too. :)

Istill don't got it all the way off...lol you can still tell there were emblems there, meh I get to it eventually it doesn't bug me really as I can't see it sitting in the drivers sear

IMO, leave the badges. De-badging stopped by cool in my book after 2fast2furious. But that's just me, do what you want.
