What looks the best? (Satoshi w/ Lettering)

I apologize to Homer if I shouldn't be posting this in your section but I honestly couldn't think of the right place to put this.

Anyway, I just got added to the list for Homer's grilles. (Yes, I'm getting ahead of my self already ) I'm getting a color matched, M1 style mesh, thin-lip Satoshi. I also ordered 12'' "Raptor" style letters from JLee (B.A.M.F) to put on my Satoshi whenever it is built. I made up a Photoshop concept of what my grille will look like, shown below. My question is, which looks the best for the color of the lettering?

White:



Magnetic Grey Metallic:



Black:

I vote white. I painted my lettering mag gray, didnt stand out enough. So i outlined the letters in white. Then i decided i had no other white on my truck and it looked out of place, so i took the lettering off lol. I am thinking i will add some red accents someday and then see how mag grey lettering with a red outline will look. Check my gallery if you wanna see mine

Not to burst a bubble, but just giving you a time frame.

I was added to Homer's list back in May, he just now shipped it on Monday and should be at my house on the 17th of December.

I voted white, although black would be sick with some small LED's behind the grill.

Thanks for the input. I am worried that having the white lettering would look out of place as the only white thing on my truck, like you did.

Yep, I am aware of the substantial wait. That's why I joked around in the OP about getting ahead of myself.

I like that emblem in white

I have Devil Horns in Mag Grey on my MGM truck and that looks good too , but I think the TOYOTA lettering looks better in white

I'd do the MGM #2, more subtle and looks great

Personally I like the subtlety of the letters powder coated to match the mesh.

Also - no problem with the thread in here.
Thanks for the input and room in the section Homer. And yes, I did request (and received) the +/- 12'' version of the "Toyota" letters from JLee. I don't love the look of the huge "Raptor" style letters, but I do like the font and everything. The letters are +/- 2'' x 2''.

the black doesn't stand out enough. If I was getting custom grilles and letters I would want everyone to see that shit. The mgm does blend very nicely though.
