Black on white ! debadge or paint it black?!

Hey everyone!.

Just another fellow here trying to make his 4cyl tacoma look somewhat decent. I am trying to try make my taco white on black and need some input from yall. So far I have my tails smoked, window tinted, and just BHLM my front lights today. I am gonna either debadge the car or paint them black and put em back on. here is what it currently looks like. No laughing okay?

Let me have it, how does it look so far?

Debadged

I recently debadged my white 4dr taco and it looks great! I bought plasti-dip thinking I was going to black out the emblems but I decided to keep her bare. Debadged looks sexy! just black out everything else.

Paint it black. Not a fan of de-badging, I like how it breaks up the lines in the vehicle.

U should paint it black... it really adds some good contrast to have black emblems check out my pics for some ideas... also look up the plasti dip thread it will help u with painting the emblems with out having to take them off... but the truck looks clean good luck on ur build :-D

take off all badges cept for the front "T" logo, and the "Tacoma" badges on the doors and tailgate, then paint black. If you dont like it, take em off.

Just taped it off and put up newspaper to protect everything around it. Then got my favorite rattle can and sprayed away. Its pretty easy to do a few hours start to finish and everything is dry and good to go...

Its been on for a year now and no problems, i dont wash my truck every week though, it normally gets washed when it rains lol. But it couldnt hurt to add a layer of clear coat if you wanted to, if not and it fades, chips etc you could just sand it down some and repaint it...

I went black, saw a guy who did white to match his truck and I really liked the look of it. I just don't want to pull mine off and re-do them yet.

There is a pic on here of white out logos on a white truck and I think it looks awesome.
