I have a color matched grill (was stock chrome) for sale, that came off my 2005 TRD offroad. I'm selling it because I bought a 09 one and like it better with the grey center.
I specifically followed the threads here on TW for instructions. Basic layers are: scuff/sand chrome, adhesive promoter x 3, primer x 3, sand, paint x 3, clear x 3. I used Krylon Fusion and genuine Taco paint from online sellers.
Silver Streak Mica.
After painting the grill, I taped it off and painted the center portion black.
The grill came out pretty good, it looks great on the truck.
Issues I have:
1.) It is rough to the touch. It does not feel as smooth as it can be. I did not finish it off with wax or anything (didn't get around to it yet).
2.) Up close near the small black mesh sides & junction with the grill surround, you can see some inconsistent paint. This is where when i taped it off, there was still some over spray that got underneath. I had to do touch up work with a brush.
Some closeup shots of mesh triangles.
Notice : Top pic is before touch up
It comes with the 2 plastic clips.
It does NOT come with an emblem.
