    2011 trd off-road prerunner custom paint
    black saphire metalic paint with TRD off-road chameleon, 8000k hids on headlights and fogs, led map lights, led corner lights, saftey first baby seat mod in backseat, white/amber drls, devil horn emblems, trd seat covers, trd cai (old version)
    finished a hell of a wax job..all by hand.. i think i did alright for doing it myself by hand...used nxt gen tech wax 2.0 the first day then meguirs yellow wax 26..the paint is black saphire metallic so its really hard to keep clean but glitters great when clean..the chameleon paint coming from the hood to the side is red to blue which makes it look purpley..i ordered blue to red but it was written wrong on the form but it gets attention so i didnt mind it..got more pics in my profile..hope you guys like it...

    also should i leave it without the trd off-road decals or put them back on? or get some from soc? they were taken off at the paint shop and they ordered new ones but could change anytime.

    If you do a TRD sticker I would go with a custom one instead of the stock one.

    that looks pretty good, never woulda thought to do something like that. Seeing all of these nice weather detailing truck threads makes me jealous. Mine's hurtin' for it bad.

    I do like that look though, haven't really seen it before
