Dipping my badges

Getting prepped for super complicated, highly specialized plasti-dipping procedure.

Commence Dipping...

Will update once excess is removed, hopefully I can leave it on overnight, otherwise I will be doing it at 10:30 tonight. In the dark because my garage only holds a corolla...

Just taking off the paper got most of the excess off

Ended up looking better than I thought



I really like the texture it gives the badges, although the rubbery texture also collects dirt really easily

All in all it came out good, and it is reversible! I ended up scuffing the SR5 a little, but you would have to get right up to it to see it, so I'm all good for now. Probably the easiest, least significant mod, but at least I stand out a little from the multitude of Tacos around here.

So I was worried that I was making the most boring build thread ever, but I sold some rims that were in my garage and now can get some more useful stuff going. Will probably wait on cosmetic stuff because that shit always gets jacked up on the trail anyway. My lights are too scuffed and cracked to do the BHLM, so shocks coils are on the way. This thread will get more entertaining, I promise.

Chime in with your suggestions for individual parts and or lift kits you have found. I will probably want to replace my leaf springs because mine are sitting flat with the topper on there. Trying to get this stuff done for under $1k without getting crappy parts. See my original post for what I'm looking to do with my truck.
Any thoughts on this?

Only problem with it is that to get it for around $1100 I have to just do an AAL instead of the Dakar leaf packs

I want that one but it is way back ordered. I will be going through toy tech because I can avoid shipping costs. I'm looking at the OME kit now, more expensive, but good stuff and not back ordered. Maybe I will try to buy the kit you suggested without the springs then try to find the eibach coil overs on here.

I think any lift I do will void my warranty, and the wife isn't having that... Been some rough conversations over that, but I am wondering if I could fit these bad boys in my fender wells. Looks like a pretty sweet deal. What do you all think? I would almost have to stop blacking stuff out on the truck though...

Why would it void your warranty? And no you will not be able to fit those without a lift you will destroy your fenders and not be able to turn....

You could also paint them or plastiderp them black

So my truck was purchased used and came with a crazy warranty (cool) but it specifically says that a lift kit will nullify any further coverage (LAME). The wife isn't having any of that, but I did still order some fun stuff that will finally make this thread somewhat interesting.
First, to keep blacking stuff out:



And some weather tech digi fit mats front and back. Went with black, hopefully I like it. Gray would show less dirt and match the cab better, but I think I need to introduce the black in and out... Yikes that sounded kinda dirty.

Got an FJ satoshi front emblem and will try to satosh my own grill. Will do flat black, does anybody know if you can rhino-line a grill and still have it fit?
This is the grill mesh I ordered for my satoshi:


And I HAD to get something that either made me more off-road ready, or more powerful (you know, something we dudes have to do for our sanity) and so I got a good deal from a member on one of these:

So I finally got up to do some wheelin in the super stocker. It was great! A few scary moments, but came out unscathed! See this link for pics
http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/sou...events-34.html
I was surprised at how well she did, especially considering the truck doesn't even have the third tsb spring (was never done by previous owner). Will be doing my satoshi grill this week.
Bad news though, I had to send the rims back, it is hard to find a steel wheel that will fit over the calipers on these trucks, so I will worry about rims later. Found a trd CAI on craigslist close to my house, so I will try to sell the kn I just bought from a member and hopefully be able to get this trd (same as the afe).
