    Loved how everyones elses looked so i had to do it. Took about 8 hours and alot of elbow grease lol. Tell me what you think. I still want to get rid of the graphics on the side and the tailgate.

    Yea i rattle caned it but did alot of prep work i mean alot that is a pain. It stuck very nice and i put a clear coat over everything i painted. So hopefully it will hold up either way looks way better than before in my opinion. NicNac22 i like the toyota on the tailgate also just wich it where black now i might just leave evertyhing on there dont want shadows all over the truck. Next need some brackets for my brush guard and some running boards.

    The wheels look friggen amazing dude. Love the look of the grille and surround too. Those early Tacomas have the nicest looking grilles/etc IMO.

    I'd hit up that bumper valence with some back-to-black or the heat gun method to make it match the blackness of the freshly painted chrome.

    Hope all of it holds up on the chrome, cause it looks great.

    Can't wait to see you clean up the look by removing those decals and badges.

    thanks man my favorite part is the wheels too they turned out better than i thought they would.yea ill be painting that too didnt realize it was that much diffrent until i saw the pics i posted. maybe next weekend. i was thinking about keeping the graphics now i think they look decent now that there is no more chrome. i hateeeee chrome.

    not going to wash it or take it off roade for atleast 2 weeks or so let it set good. and i dont drive many miles anyhow so the paint should set pretty well hopefully it will last but i dont mind touching it up once in awhile either.
