    Well im not totally done but im fairly happy with it so far[​IMG]
    So I started by removing the badges using floss then removed all the sticky stuff behind the badges.
    Next i pulled the whole piece off the car which is fairly easy only four bolts hold it on.
    With the part off i used some 60grit sandpaper to scratch up the back of the panel where the holes are[​IMG]
    Then i taped the painted side of the panel with some painters tape[​IMG]
    Then i used some caulk to fill in the holes[​IMG][​IMG]
    I used caulk instead of plastic epoxy because i wanted to make be able to put the emblems back on down the road.
    Once the caulk cures i'll put a little more on top of whats there and let it dry.
    Then i tape off the area and use touch up paint to have match better.

    Can you post a pic of the back side of the PRIUS emblem you removed? What is the distance between the locating pins?
    Thx

    Oh also wanted to show this which gives you an idea of how large the holes are for the hybrid emblem. [​IMG]

    For a 2017 Prime, are the badges on the sides and the rear simply glued on?
    Or do they have pins?
