I want to put the newer Toyota logo in the grill of my FJ40. Can anyone make a recommendation of a model to buy one from that is not grossly large (like 07 4R) and also mounts with screws from the backside, not adhesive?

Last wekend we had a classic car show in town and a guy there had a 69 with the sombrero on the grill. I didn't take pictures and I didn't look to see how it was attached, but this weekend we have another car show and a lot of the locals do both shows. If he is there I'll ask questions. It did look good.

From what I have found, late model Tundra, Taco, Highlander and 4R grill emblems are attached by screws from the the inside. ~6" wide X 4" tall.

Most, if not all rear emblems are attached with adhesive.

Keep the ideas coming!

Dgangle,
I see this is an older thread, but did you ever find a solution? Getting ready for paint on my 1980 and just sourced some woven square mesh grille material (think ICON appearance). A decent sized sombrero with mounting screws on the back would be the finishing touch.

I cut out an aluminum plate the shape of my logo, painted black, mounted with black screws, then used the adhesive logo- - - zero problems.
