My new teeth project

Ive been slowly working on my new grille.
Im going to paint it white to match the truck and im putting in a black mx Grillcraft grille.
Here is the progress so far

masked ready to cut


cut and cleaned up

Now im not sure what emblem to put on


option 1


still option 1 toyota bottem right


option 2 Lexus bottem right


option 3 Lexus centered


option 4 Big ass lexus L


option 5 tacoma centered


option 6 Black Chrome trd bottem right


My grille still needs to be painted white hopfully this week. Black mesh is staying. Painting grille and clear corners trim.

The lexus symbol is kind of cute but I like option 1 the most.

The fact that it just got called cute means you should veto it if you are going for manly

First off i put the lexus badge on because i had them lying around. and a chinese decal on a greman car is nothing like that. It like putting and Acura emblem on your honda, and although you may dislike it does make since.
My other option is a throw back "toyota" emblem off a cruiser or somthing but i cant find one i like.

Yeah, sorry it wasn't meant like that....it was a exaggerated comparison just to make a point....

Id say go for the Toyota emblem, i think it looks kick ass on the grille...

I like option 1-B, the larger of the 2 Toyota emblems. Whatever you decide, it's going to look great!

Check this out! This would look totally sweet in that grille. It was for sale on Ebay and I've seen a member on this site that has it. Maybe you could contact them and get this emblem...
