DTCVTC's 05 TRD Build



Bought a 05 TRD Off road last week and started on the mods. The rims were pretty beat up from all the VT winters. Looked like a good place to start.

Below is a close up of the corroisin on the rims.

Looked at a lot of post on here and decided to go with a little different paint theam. So sanded them down and started taping off.


Then came a coat of primer


Next was the painting of the Rim. I used Rustolims Hammerd black paint. Somthing a little different

Here is a picture of one painted and stock


Ok all done with the caps back on what do you think?


More to come!!!

Like the wheels. Any issues with the wheels scratching easily? How many coats of paint did you use?

Thinking of doing this myself..... looks good, and the price is just right.

So far no scratching on the wheels. Only been through some trails and a lot of dirt roads. Should be good I put a coat of Clear coat for rims on there just to be safe. The hardest part is the tapeing takes about a hour or two per rim. I put three coats of paint one coat of self eatching primer and two coats of clear coat.


Also installed URD short shift kit and Home made Grill pictures to follow soon
