Well I ended up painting it with Krylon Black Satin and that was just way too shiny so I repainted it with Rustoleum Flat Black and it came out pretty good. I think it's as close as it's going to get without actually purchasing the black version.

Well I got this dent on 4th of July from some kids and their fireworks...not very big, and luckily it didn't mess the paint up at all. But it was just annoying to look at everytime I walked out to get in my car because it was on drivers side rear door just below the window and partially on the crease.

Hard to see it in the picture but it was about the size of a nickel


$80 Bucks later and a visit from mobile PDR guy and it looks like this


I'm pretty happy with the outcome. I can barely even notice where it was before. I'm just glad I don't see it when I look in my side mirror anymore

I like not seeing many other trucks like mine!

Yea i also live in the Pittsburgh area (Latrobe) and i never see other tacos! It is pretty sweet to have something almost unique.....rednecks

Your brothers truck looks tiny compared. Fitting that he is your younger brother. lol.

For future reference, you guys should look into SEM products. They are pretty much the heat when it comes to matching factory colors, and normally they have flexible color coats to match OEM specs. GREAT stuff, and it stays PUT!! Autozone and such normally DO NOT carry them, you have to go to your local auto paint store for it, but its worth it!!

Any ideas on what I should do next guys?

Currently working on painting the inside of my taillights black and resealing them, so I'm trying to plan ahead what I should do.

I am just finishing up satoshi that needs to be primered now and was planning on selling it.

However, I was thinking that if I cut about 1 to 1.5 inches off the depth of the grille I could mount some Kragen HID's. Do you think it would be worth the hassle? I already have Hella 500's behind my recessed grille but the Kragens won't fit with a completely recessed grille. I like the light output of the Kragens but I don't know if I can justify all that work to change lights.

Would it look weird to have stock headlights with HID offroad lights?
