    Hey! I'm a new member here. Have had my Tacoma for around 6 months and I love it! I found myself poking around on here, and saw some of the awesome mods you all were making to your trucks, and well, yeah- I caught the bug! Here are some photos of the first mods I've made:

    Painted stock wheels black with Duplicolor primers, paint, and clear coat.

    Painted tailpipe, badges, and grille black with Rustoleum plastic primer and paint

    Painted bumper black - same process as grille

    Painted console and some misc interior parts black

    I'd really like to add some floorboard lighting but going to have to read up on what that requires first..... Thanks for all the inspiration! Here's hoping the paint holds up!

    Nice truck man! Looks like the bumper turned out quite nice. I would like to see it with the BHLM done so keep on modding away
