    I just bought a new white grill surround to do a satoshi. But now i am thinking about color matching the center piece white and painting the emblem black. Has anyone ever done something like this?

    And what do you think will look better satoshi or color match center piece with black emblem?

    I'm a little biased toward satoshi so that gets my vote. If you wanted that much white and wanted it to be different what if you did the satoshi and painted the metal white as well....idk how it would look though, might be too much white.

    I forgot his name over on TN, but he had an impulse red and color-matched the whole grille. If you ask me, it's too much. Also, another member had a 5 lug and painted his whole grille white. It just looked too tacky. Just do the recessed grille mod.

    I think I am going to go with just the satoshi black grill craft and white TOYOTA emblem. But thanks for the help guys.

    That looks sick. But i still think i am going to go with the satoshi. My truck is white with a lot of black. Adding all that white might be to much.
