    easyeatlanta lives in memphis? i thought i had a fellow GA tacoma owner for a minute! haha. nice truck, it will look great with those wheels. and i also did the black badges and ended up only putting the "tacoma" back on the tailgate. it looked better to me anyway (plus i effed up the other badges, lol)

    I don't know how to remove the front Toyota symbol, and are you looking to get digital fit floor mats?

    I really like how the rims came out with the black powder coat, how much did it cost you to do all four of the rims if you don't mind me asking?

    i am looking to get the digital fit ones in black and i got the wheels powdercoated for $50 a rim and got the bumper done at the same time and all of it was around $230 and the front toyota emblem is clipped in to the grill so if you look at from the back you should be able to figure out how to get it off

    it was just some sand paper i found around the shop just roughed it up enough to knock the shine off the chrome and that paint will stick to anything. I left it over night and I believe I used two coats of paint.
