Default Shaving Badges....

So what badges are there holes behind on a 1998 SC300?

What kind of price am I looking at to fill/shave the holes (after you guys tell me where the holes are).


I want the rear end to look like Tonys car (label wise). THanks.

I think you only have holes behind the big L in the back, the rest of them should just be glue...

the earlier models had holes behind ALL the emblems

pretty much have to have the holes filled and sanded down on the truck and the bumper ( so both of those would have to be repainted)

a lot of work and money for just being badgless- do it if you need paint work then it wont be much more to do that also

but it does look clean.. and no one ever knows what kinda car it is ( none car people at least)

the earlier models i know for a fact had holes behind ALL of them, I think the 97+ SCs had holes only behind the big L in the back, the rest were glue...this is what i've read on the forum here from various owners..

But your car is a 1997, maybe 98-00 have no holes?? God, I hope so..I hate emblems. Let us know ryansc300lover if you take off your emblems.

97,98,99,00 bodies....same.

97, Face lift, non VVti, 5 spd manual, 4 spd auto (*****-matic)
98 VVti 4spd, Chrome 6 and 5 spoke 16" wheels
99-00 VVti 5spd, gated shifter, 3 spoke steering wheel

I'm pretty sure those are the major changes to the SC300 for that time-line.
(I'm sure someone will correct me since I'm shooting from the hip)

There are holes in your deck lid....break out the bondo!!!

i 2nd that on the earlier models. A couple of 95 and below plus my 92 sc300 all have holes and adhesive on all 4 of the emblems. If i had to paint the car or it was only adhesive holding it, i would shave it. Otherwise i just spray the emblems cuz my gold was fading.

My trunk lid I believe had the holes on my car, but since I had the whole car repainted I told them to fill them in. I forgot if there were holes or not but I bought an adhesive "L" badge in case and now have the option to either have it on or off. I have it on though...IMO you must have the "L" badge

Correct. The L and the LEXUS have holes. The SC300 does not have holes.
