    I was thinking about doing the evo mod and changing it up a bit on a base tacoma. Ive always really digged the whole look on a taco. I wanted to know what it would look like(Thanks Photoshop thread!)

    Before I paint alot of the bumper white, I was thinking about doing the opposite of black, white. :devil:
    My idea was to go white right where the black is here on dis taco.

    I was going to get some white plasti derp and paint the lower valence white.
    What do everybody think?

    Here how it is now

    White plasti-dip is going to look like trash. I'm not saying it's a bad idea seeing the whole point of plasti-dip is that you can peel it off, but still, it's not going to look very fancy.

    I am saying that because the whites aren't going to match.

    Dark tacomas look pretty good with the valence white.
