    Hey guys, I recently bought a TRD emblem on eBay from seller AutoGood88:

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/e...0345585942&viewitem=&sspagename=STRK:MEWNX:IT

    and the flag is freakin yellowish white and maroon rather than white and red. is there any paint you guys can recommend i go at it with so it doesn't look like a cheap knock off? (even though it is)

    here's the best picture of it on my truck I have at the moment...(click the link because the size is so big). you can't tell it's off-white because of the way i edited the picture, but you can definitely tell in person

    Haha, thanks guys. I just had the truck detailed literally minutes before the shoot.

    But yeah, I took the yellow out when i was photoshopping the picture. but you can def. see it in person. the maroon is much worse though. looks nothing like "TRD red"

    Its a $8 set of badges bro...only thing i can think to do is go to auto parts store and pick up some red and white touch up paint and kinda pour it on the red and white parts..so you don't see brush strokes. I have the same badges and they are recessed a bit so this might work for you
