Hi,

Anyone have the mounting location of the toyota T/sombrero emblem on the rear of the '97.

I picked up some black pearl emblems and the rear T emblem is curved so it won't fit on the flatter position of the stock emblem of the '96 I own. Rather than try to flatten it with heat or something and risk destroying it, I decided to just locate it in the same place as the '97 emblem.

I assume it is centered on the upper hatch left to right, and somewhere on the curved surface between the hatch lock and the horizontal "landcruiser" emblem. Can anyone help me be more precise?

Is it in the body section of the '97 FSM? I only have the '96 version. Could someone shoot me the location?

Thanks,
Charlie

I believe the T logo goes in the middle of the tailgate under the wiper on a 97. See if it fits there.

Thanks! That is just what I needed.

Your 80 looks awesome - one of my favorite colors!

I bought a TRD emblem off ebay (I have a TRD supercharger) masked off the red/white bars, and hit it with tamaya smoke paint for polycarbonate RC cars, then, once it dried, removed the masking tape and put it over the holes where the original T went. It comes very close to matching the black pearl factory emblems.

Where did you guys find the Black Pearl emblems? I bought a 40th without them and have been looking for them.
