Looks super clean! You should write a "how-to". Is there one already on the site? I couldn't find it

For the grill, do you just tape the area off or actually remove the grill?

Looks great!!!

There is a DIY thread: http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/det...e-badging.html

I started mine today. I took off all the emblems and cleaned them. I only painted the two for the sides. It started getting dark and I didn't want to rush it so I'm going to wait until the morning to put them back on. I have to clean and paint the back ones too. For the back, I'm just debating if I should put all the emblems back or just the Toyota and/or Tacoma one.

Pics to come as soon as I'm done. Thanks to everyone for posting how to do it. Was a piece of cake.

The toyota emblem on the grill pops right off. Open up the hood and you will see it. Hope this helps

Show us some pics when u get them on tomorrow In my opinion, leave some of the emblems off. it looks cleaner and makes the ones left on stand out.

Niiiice man!

When you get completely done plzzz post more pics. I am about to do the same thing on my white taco and want to see some pics of the whole truck, not just the emblems up close.

Also trying to decide what to do with that chrome around the front grill....

off topic: what skid plate is that one the front of your truck?
