    Hi,

    Once again I got bored and decided to go to Auto Zone and get some paint. Seeing as how the front Toyota emblem on my truck was the only thing chrome (besides dual exhaust tips) on my truck, I wanted to change it. I hate when things don't match so I sanded the emblem, used some primer, and put two coats of "Toyota Super White Color Matched Paint". About two hours later, it was done and I love it.

    That looks good.

    I think white on a white truck is the only color you can get away with while looking good.
