So like the question states - are the Red emblems all made of a vinyl sticker??? If so, that's disappointing - thought it was paint. I bought mine and the sticker is off center... :( Anyway, I worked it off with an X-acto and recentered it so it looks nice - it's also less glossy that I would expect - can I clearcoat the vinyl?

After reading your post I immeadiately went to look at mine (not installed yet). I started to tear off the protective plastic and the red STICKER started to pull off. I thought it was going to be painted. I don't see it lasting too long outside.

Hey Ricky..How you been? I bought the Celica GTS badge and cut off the Gand S to get my "T". It looks really neat next to the 1.8 and the red area is surrounded by chrome like material. Did your ever do your "springs" project?

Sam...

Hey Sam how's it going - I'm hanging in there. Springs - my Eibach Pro-system is coming in the mail soon so I decided to do both.

Take a pic of that T and email it to me I would love to see it.

How's everything with you?

I was thinking about painting it. Wouldn't the clear coat kind of dull the chrome look of the rest of the T?
I thought I would mask the chrome border and build up the clear on the red part only? Maybe I'm being stupid!

I bought the 20V badge from Cullen and it has a vinyl V as well. Its lasted through a New England winter thus far with no problems. I wasn't thrilled when I first got it but I'm pretty happy since.
