Hello,
I am trying to find a translation for the text in this image.

I do know that the "Teq" means Toyota, but what do the words around the edge of the logo mean? Thank you for your help!

Spectre (Specter) Off-Road
Genuine Parts

Part of the third character from the left in the bottom section is missing.

The middle says トヨタ, not "Teq". It is read "Toyota".

Just to clarify, do you mean that the writing over the top says " Specter Off-Road" and the writing along the bottom says "Genuine Parts"?

Thanks!

That's correct. Use whichever spelling of Specter is appropriate.

Yeah, the character should be like this, as pointed out.

If you want more of a breakdown or need to do any cut and pasting, here is how each individual character is pronounced with meanings as a whole. Hyphens are only meant to separate character pronounciations, normally they would not be there at all:


トヨタ     to-yo-ta = Toyota

スペクター  su-pe-ku-ta-a = specter

オフロード  o-fu-ro-o-do = offroad

純正 jyun-sei = genuine, pure

部品  bu-hin = parts
