This machined aluminum TEQ badge mounts onto the front grille of your a 91-94 & 95-97 Toyota LandCruiser (80 series) and the 98-07 (100 series). WIll also mount to the LX450 and LX470 Lexus. I offer the badge in the retro red/silver, the black/silver, and bare aluminum for the folks who want to do there own paint color. The factory chrome “sombrero” must be removed. For the 95-02 Cruiser and LX TEQ badge the easiest way to install the emblem is to remove the entire grill and then install the emblem. This is not a must. You can use a stubby screwdriver and pliers, but you will need some patience and a cool car; NOT a hot radiator. Don’t forget to remove the backing from the 3M adhesive. You want to run the screws through the backside of the grill first. Make SURE to use the provided black washers between the screws and backside of the grill. They are for spacing purposes to get the TEQ badge perfectly flat to your grill. Once the screws are through then start each screw with a full turn but prevent the adhesive from grabbing the grill Do not tighten the screws until all of them have been started. That will ensure you get everything lined up properly. Once the screws have threaded in slightly then you can press the badge onto the grill and the adhesive will hold it nice and snug while you screw in the 3 screws. Between the adhesive and screws everything should stay nice and flush. Reinstall the grille in the same way you removed it. IF you are buying the 03-07 badge then there were no screws used on the OEM sombrero badge. Toyota only used adhesive. You will need to pry the factory badge off. Some heat and fishing line will help. There are small tabs that help center the badge so you will not be able to simply run the fishing line all the way down the back side. Once the badge and adhesive are removed, you will simply stick the new badge on using the same type of 3M adhesive. No hardware needed for the 03-07 badge and no need to remove the grill.
