Take dental floss and put it underneath the decal and start from one side to the other in a "sawing" motion. Careful thought because the center "Toyota" emblem is fixed with both glue and pins.l33tGreenCamry said:ack screw spray paint, I want them to be the actual colours they were originally.

as long as it's not your low e. :l33tGreenCamry said:what about an E string from a guitar. Thats the thinest string, very similar to piano wire. would that work as well?
take it to a local body shop and have them paint match it, then go to auto-zone and buy some touch-up paint with the same paint code. take your symbols off, sand 'em down, clean 'em up and paint 'em. you could clear-coat them as well, if you want.l33tGreenCamry said:On My 96 Ive got the gold symbols but the paint is wearing off on some of the symbols, both the gold and the gloss coating, I would like fix them up my self with out buying new symbols, anyone have any ideas regarding this?
Negative. That wont work. The original symbols aren't painted. They are dipped in some bronze looking thing and thats how the color comes onto it. Its impossible to paint it to look exactly like how they originally came. Believe me, I have tried :disappoinCrawlingEye said:take it to a local body shop and have them paint match it, then go to auto-zone and buy some touch-up paint with the same paint code. take your symbols off, sand 'em down, clean 'em up and paint 'em. you could clear-coat them as well, if you want.
He aparently is a Toyota sales person.trdcamry2003 said:The dealer has this the stuff that makes it look like gold. It's first red, then they give it an electrical charge and it turns gold. I would take them off yourself and sand them down to prep it for the dealer so it won't cost that much. Or you can always spray paint them.
