Trevor's Tacoma Project

New Tacoma owner and contributor to the forum but I have been following some of the builds here for several months. Just bought a barely used 2013 DCSB Tacoma 4x4, TRD Sport on May 17th, 2013. Bought it with only 2,300 miles on it and am loving it! I've had a couple Jeep projects in the past but this is my first Toyota.

How she sits for now:


The previous owner put all kinds of chrome accessories on it, so my first "mod" was to actually de-mod the truck by taking all the chrome accessories off and removing the dealer pinstripes down the side of the truck.



Removing the rear tail light chrome pieces:


Window Deflectors, Door handle covers, and some flat chrome pieces between the windows are going too:


And removing this tailgate handle cover:


With all it's ugly BLING!


Removing this too:


This stuff has some crazy 3M sticky stuff left behind:


More sticky stuff:


The answer to removing the 3M tape; 3M Adhesive Eraser Wheel:


You would never know the chrome was there:


Don't like Dealer Striping:


Comes off pretty easy. Only had to use the 3M eraser in a few small spots.


And she is looking much better now. Took off the Running Boards too.

Thanks for dechroming.. Way to much.

I sorda like the stripe, but to each his own I guess.

Why did the previous owner sell it? 2300 miles??

From what I was told, he decided he wanted a bigger truck and went with the Tundra instead.

And as far as the pinstripes, they weren't that bad. I just prefer no stripes and they are easy to take off.

Got some updated pics of the truck at a nearby railroad track. All de-chromed and completely stock for now.
