I'm just wondering how the badging is stuck on the car from the factory. What kind of adhesive do they use? Tape? Glue?

Not sure, either way you can take care of it by heating it up with a drier or a heatgun and slipping some floss between the paint and the emblem

Hmm...

Is there supposed to be a gap between the badge and the body of the car? Like a noticeable 1/4" gap?

i took my badging off the trunk.. and it was like a really weak glue.. i did it after my car was wet.. and its smooth now..

I'm not looking to take my badges off...but I think they were taken off when my car was repainted...

I'm asking because it looks like he couldn't be bothered with glue, instead he used strong doublesided tape...really thick doublesided tape. I can stick the tip of my index finger under the badges...

Yeah, it isn't supposed to stick out that far.

for the love of God people.. DO NOT DEBADGE YOUR TOYOTA! We don't need to start up some ghey ass honduh thing here.. I'm damn PROUD to have my Toyota badge!

Ricers do that shit so people don't realize that they are driving a heap of shit under all that body work and stickers.

I'm proud of my GEN5 and don't really want to drive around in a "covert" celica. I want to cry out that "I'm a Celica GT, and I'm proud of it!" :hehe:
