I was just wondering if anyone thinks it might be a neat idea ( or maybe someone has already done this ) to put the newer "Supra" badge in our old school grill, replacing the "Toyota" badge?

Try it & see what it looks like. Take pics and share with us...and if it sucks, you'll know right away. ;)

Good luck!

If you are talking about the MkIV "Supra" emblem it's a decal and will probably not stick too well to the grille grating. I would apply it to a black plastic or metal sheet and affix it to the grille. It'll probably look OK, but the factory MkIV decal is really dark and probably won't stick out to well on a black grille. I'd look for the MkIV caliper decals you see around. They are white and will stick out much better. I think the //TRD emblem or 3.0 turbo badge looks the best in that spot though.

Too bad for the rest of you, I got the last two "3.0 Trubo" badges from Leslie :twisted:

Has anyone ever put one of those chrome grills kind of like the ones on trucks (I know what your gonna say :gotrice: ) its just an Idea

Zank, maybe you got the last ones because they say Trubo not Turbo. :rotfl: :whistle:

I was actually thinking about the silver MK4 badge I've seen, didn't think that would be too dark, and if so I'd just put a tiny LED under it for night time use ( not to be ricey ), ah well, we'll see. I was also wondering about the 2.8 badge I've seen somewhere. Where would I get that if still available?

just an FYI .... you can get kits to place an led under a plastic pad which will light up... theyre made for computer case badges, but you could mod one to work for this. :)

that'd be pretty neat....hmmm, or maybe I could modify the clear plastic piece that illuminates the heat-a/c-vent cluster, stick a different color, or maybe the same green bulb and illuminate something. I'd have to actually sit down and think about this some more. My brain can only handle so many volts at once :)
it's a good thing I have a spare grill, lol

By the way one of those was mine and i also was the one that technically orderd both of them "trubo" badges. I just wanted to correct that incorrect zank statement. :twak: :liar: :evil2: :twisted: :mrgreen: :lol: :rotfl:

Oh yea i also chromed a front grill i got from the yard and did not like it.

Finally zank i think u forgot to add :humpleg: :jerkit: to your last post. :lol:

I saw a XX yesterday with the new T for Toyota symbol stuck on the front gorilla. Not my taste. But then, I'm sure not everyone like my new badge.

Gotta show-off the fact that I've got 2 trubos somehow!
