    Ready to take your truck by the horns?


    After a long wait from you, I'm happy to inform that you can finally get your hands on your very own Devil Horns emblem. Devil Horns began as a simple request from a proud Tacoma owner and a good friend of mine. He gave me the idea, I took on the challenge and now I'm glad to share this small piece of work with many Toyota vehicle owners. This type of emblem has been approved for a small production under direct permission from Toyota Motor Company's Legal Department under certain conditions. Please follow the simple rules that will help me deliver this emblem to you listed at the bottom of this e-mail, if it weren't for them I wouldn't be able to bring this product to your hands.

    The design:
    The first step into making Devil Horns was the use ofComputer Aided Design/Drafting, also known as CAD. The Idea is to draw Devil Horns as a 3D model with the use of computer software, modifying every line and curvature until they all meet in a well balanced and functional design.

    The material:
    6061-T6 Aircraft Grade Aluminum was selected as the primary material used to make Devil Horns. Aluminum is remarkable for the metal's low density and its ability to resist corrosion. All tough other grades of aluminum are available (2024, 7075, etc.), 6061-T6 offers a well balanced solution in stress, strength and ease of working with, making it a perfect structural component for this emblem.

    Fabrication process:
    In order to provide the highest quality of fabrication, Devil Horns was made using CNC machines. Before the use of CNC technology parts were fabricated manually by a machinist, a person who uses machine equipment to make or modify parts, primarily metal parts. With the introduction of CNC equipment the fabrication process is now made using automated machines which can be programed to perform various operations to produce complex parts offering more options, control and repeatability. While other methods of fabrication exist to produce this emblem I wanted to share the same product with you as the first emblem I made years ago that takes time and care to perfect, all 100% American made.

    Shot penning option:
    In order to remove the marks left by the CNC machine, shot penning was the best available method. Shot penning is a process that uses round metallic particles with sufficient force to create surface deformation. The result is an increased stress layer that hardens the outer area of the material making it stronger and more durable. I have included this option as some people don't like the machining marks left by the CNC machine, this is only a matter of preference. This option comes to you at an extra cost.
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]
    Anodizing option:
    The anodizing process starts with suspending the aluminum with wires and putting it in an acid bath. Electric current is run through it causing the surface of the aluminum to oxidize (essentially rust). The aluminum is then immersed in dye baths of various colors to achieve the color desired. The dye is trapped in the surface as well as making the surface even harder than the inside of the aluminum. The result is an elegant color and a more durable finish. You may choose from the available colors listed, this option come to you at an extra cost.

    Available Colors for anodizing:
    *Dark Grey (Shown with no shot penning)
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    *Cherry Red

    *Horns on Fire (Shown with shot penning)

    [​IMG]

    Last but not least, the new 2011 Polished Devil Horns!
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    This is the first time a polished option is being offered. The polish option consists of hand-polish using a polish wheel to a mirror-finish over the natural aluminum. After the emblem has been polished a layer of lacquer is applied to bring out the most shine from the natural aluminum. Finally brite dip is applied and clear anodize to preserve the shine over time.

    Note:

    Shot penning and Anodizing are two different options with different results. Both options are mentioned above and CAN be combined. The above emblems in Grey, Red and Black have no shot penning and show the fabrication marks left by the machining process while the Horns on Fire does have the shot penning process giving a smoother finish and increasing the color of anodize. I suggest shot penning if an anodize color is chosen. If no options are mentioned, a natural aluminum finish (just like the first emblem shown) will be mailed. Options can have various results such as the examples below:
    *No options (natural finish)
    *Shot penning only
    *Any anodize color only
    *Any anodize color + shot penning
    *Polish only

    Installation requirements:
    5/32" Allen wrench also know as a hex key
    A pair of hands
    5 minutes of your time
    [​IMG]

    (note: Top embelm is for 1st generation Tacoma, Bottom is for second generation Tacoma)
    [​IMG]

    Installation Info:
    There's very little skills required for the installation of Devil Horns. I made it as easy as I could for you to place this bad boy on your grill using four 10-32 bolts and four split locking washers.
    This would be the typical installation scenario:
    *Open the hood
    *With your fingers, gently remove the existing emblem by un clipping it from the grill
    *Slap that bad boy onto your grill, put back the split locking washers onto the bolts and finger-tighten all four bolts to the emblem
    *Snugly tighten all four bolts with a 5/32" Allen wrench also know as hex key
    *Take your truck for a spin to display your newly installed horns [​IMG]

    Closing:
    Why am I doing this?
    There is a saying that if you find something that you love doing and get paid for it you really never work a day in your life. I see my daily job as a hobby and for the most part I wake up encouraged to finishing my current job in the best possible way. I was first introduced to machining in high school and since then I have been obsessed with the idea of grabbing a piece of metal and shape it to perform a given task. I will try my best to keep these emblems available, but I fear someday I will have stop making them. For the time being, I'm having my kicks making them for Toyota vehicles and I hope to keep making them for some time. This emblem goes to anyone that has:

    used a wrench on their vehicle,
    [​IMG]

    taken hours to decide on the perfect part,
    [​IMG]

    taken it off the road
    [​IMG]

    and crawled the impossible,
    [​IMG]

    taken it out near the beach,
    [​IMG]

    battled through heavy snow,
    [​IMG]

    explored deep in the forest,
    [​IMG]

    cruised through the desert,
    [​IMG]

    to the ones who like to keep it clean,
    [​IMG]

    and the ones who don't mind getting dirty,
    [​IMG]

    anyone that polishes to a mirror finish,
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    the ones who sand blast them,
    [​IMG]

    anyone who changed it's color,
    [​IMG]

    modified their grills to make it fit,
    [​IMG]

    hang it up on the wall,
    [​IMG]

    has them on their back (hopefully I don't see this again),
    [​IMG]

    the ones who wear it with pride,
    [​IMG]

    those trucks in Florida,
    [​IMG]

    the ones in Canada,
    [​IMG]

    the ones in Peru,
    [​IMG]

    anyone making it unique
    [​IMG]

    or just making it different,
    [​IMG]

    for those who are happy with what they drive,
    [​IMG]

    the ones who win a raffle,
    [​IMG]

    for those who simply hold back and look at their trucks.
    [​IMG]

    What ever you drive right now, you know that is your vehicle

    ...and it deserves some appreciation.

    [​IMG]

    It brings me joy reading about every one of you and receiving pictures of your cars/trucks. Please send me pictures if you can, I'll be happy to look at them. It is my pleasure to bring you a unique item not sold or made anywhere else. I hope you enjoy this small piece of work and why not,
    let that truck grow some horns! [​IMG]

    Sincerely,

    Andres Diaz

    Rules:

    1) RECIRCULATE
    There's a limited quantity that I'm allowed to make each time Toyota gives me the OK, unfortunately I may not have enough emblems for everyone. If for any reason you end up not using the emblem I will gladly give you a full refund no matter how long ago it was sold. The reason why I'm doing this is because I want everyone to have a better opportunity in getting one. Please don't sell them on eBay, I will explain why.

    2) TWICE A YEAR BASIS
    I had my kicks making these bad boys for all of you and I plan on continuing to do so. I cannot afford to "bother" Toyota's legal department every time someone wants one, therefore I hope to get permission from Toyota to make them twice a year. My time is very limited as I am a college student and a full time employee, therefore dedicating time to make these emblem is very limited on my part.

    3) LIST
    I have made up a list of people that would like an emblem. If you are interested in one, please drop me an e-mail and request I add you to the list. I will have them available in the order in which I get a request, no exceptions.

    4) KEEP THINGS SIMPLE
    Please don't make a huge fuss about these emblems! The more they are advertised, viewed, etc, the more likely Toyota won't want them on the market. I ask of you not to put them on eBay, craigslist, internet site, etc.

    5) DO NOT SELL THEM ON EBAY!!!
    Toyota contacted eBay shortly after I put my first 2 emblems for sale and ebay put a hold on my account. Copyright infringement is a serious offense and eBay is notorious for tracking illegal, and unlawful content, copyright infringements, etc. Please never put this emblem on ebay, it also makes me look bad with Toyota and I may never get another change in making them again.

    6)LIMITED QUANTITY
    There are a number of people that have been waiting for an emblem for a few months. I'd like to have orders of only ONE emblem per person so that we have enough for everybody, that way is fair for the others. If you absolutely need more than one please let me know the reason and I will try my best to fit your needs.
