    The grill "toyota" emblem is coming out a totally different color than the side "Tacoma" emblems why in the hell is that happening? Its almost as if they are different materials... I did the exact same application on all emblems and front emblem isn't showing the true color I am painting it??? anyone?

    make sure you allow enough time between coats, also humidity plays a factor...
