I used sandpaper to roughen up the grill.
Wiped it down with rubbing alcohol.
Sprayed it down with a primer.
Sanded the primer and resprayed.
Bought the rattle 3R3 paint online( sidenote)

I did mine outside, and was too humid. I advise that you have a cool place to prime and spray, I used a red primer. That way if it gets scratched it will not be as visible.

Some of the other Mods that I have done to the truck are as follows:

I installed some Bed lights. (Walmart Specials)

I removed the trailer pig tail and placed it in the bumper.
I removed a tag light and stuffed it in there. You only need one light on the plate.

I will post pics when I find the camera cord..

Nice. I did the walmart special too for my bed lights. Can't really beat the price.

if you flip those bed lights and hang them you'll get better light out of them. I did the same thing in my last truck.

Just a few updates on the Taco.

I removed the Cb and Installed it in the Console. Passengers are rough on the unit being mounted on the side of the seat (My wife).

Touched up the engine compartment, a few coats of fresh red paint.

I removed the bull bar because I am Wanting to put a KC light bar on the front. With four HIDS'.

A few pics.

It is commonly known as CUSTOMIZING the truck to my liking. WTF is wrong with you? The effect I was looking for was something like a 3d badge.

As far as the grill, I was just experimenting with placement of the emblem.
I hope this answers your inquiry!

I decided today the Red Hub Caps had to go. They just did not look right.
I sprayed them flat black, they look much better. I will post a picture in the morn.
Merry Christmas Everyone.
