    The taco will be dropped off next week to get a full body repair and custom paint job. I haven't decided yet on the color so was wondering if you guys had any ideas. I wanted to go with a classy red pearl or candy but i had that on my 97 taco and color matching was a bitch when you need to paint separate panels. I really like a gunmetal or gray but they make a gray metallic for tacos already. Whatever color I go with, I would like the paint to pop, but at the same time clean and different from your original stock colors. I'll have some updated pics throughout the process. I'm debating if I should purchase a roll pan and get it molded in before they start painting but the best deal I found was $360, not including taxes and shipping costs. Anyone know where I can find a better deal?

    I was thinking about it, but it won't look right without some rims. I will have my stock xrunners for a while since I just recently bought some new tires.

    You could powder coat those wheels. Look great IMO.

    Too bad our rides have so much plastic... I was going to say take it to bare metal with buffing swirls and then just clear coat the pi$$ out of it.

    Flat black is my vote too.
    Or go with a yamaha blue (blue-ish purple).
