So I was thinking of a way to personalize my Tc even more. Well, after some thinking I have designed an emblem for the Tc. After playing around on my own, I went to a place with a basic design. They then fabricated it for me using AutoCad and Corel, and I ordered 20 of them. I will be putting one on each door (lower left part). Though it would also look good on the back if you took off the original.

Whether you all like it or not is a personal opinion. They have to be laser cut and I will be picking them up tomorrow or the next day. I dont have a digital camera but the guy there has a phone with one and he is going to take a picture of it for me. I will be selling them on ebay, but Im not sure for how much yet.

So anyways, I was excited about it and wanted to let you all know.

I wish someone made blacked out stock oval emblems... I tried painting mine - looked good before paint started coming off. So I stripped it back to original.

I just got the call that they are done. Im going to wait until tomorrow to pick them up anyway because they take 12 hrs to completely dry.

I sure hope you all arent dissapointed, lol.


I too like the blacked out scion logo, but only on dark Tc's.....Mine is white. =)

I might keep on experimenting with different paints - maybe I'll find something that won't strip as easily...

And ufgatorfan, Can you ask your shop if they can make a standard scion emblem in black chrome or something like that? Or maybe they can coat our stock emblems somehow permanent? I can send them my emblems.

I will mention something tomorrow. They primarily deal with plastics and vinyl, but it cant hurt to ask.

I picked up the emblems today. I definitely like them. Unfortunately the guy with the digital camera was not there. I will get pics up asap however.

Well, here it is. Its a horrible picture taken with a camera phone and I dont plan on selling it on ebay until I can take some better pics.

I also had some pics of my car, but they looked horrid so I will wait to post good ones later.

It just rained and there is a spot of water on top of the "T".

thats pretty cool how you did T RD sliding the 'c' in it. i think it looks good, not exactly a "wow" factor. Just my opinon. it would look better if you had the T in lower case and the c in upper case like tCrd or something like that. dont get me wrong it doenst look bad but it could be a bit better. yikes, hope you take my honesty without getting offended.

Liz,

Opinions are exactly what Im looking for.


It is my first time ever designing something like this. To be honest, I think it looks GREAT on my car, but might not look as good on different colors.

Thanks for your input.
