    Yes, unless they've found a place where they come pre-painted. A lot of people have connections to get them painted or do it themselves using color matched spray paint. For superwhite, it's tough, a lot of color matched paints have a little yellow tint to them. I had a set and gave up after trying 3 different places (not to discourage you from painting yourself, I'm just very picky). Try paintscratch.com, they make color match spray paint and are good to deal with. They were also the closest match I could come up with to the factory paint.

    Buy them and paint yourself if this is the look you are going for.

    Duplicolor and ColorRite make rattle cans--use the paint code for your Taco. Just prepare the surface with a nice automotive primer and then spray on the first coat. Always sand between coats with 600+ grit sand paper and make sure to clean the surface before spraying the next coat. Once you are satisfied with the color depth and match to your vehicle, finish with an automotive quality clear coat. Sand again, if you desire, and then add a second coat of clear. When spraying and drying, make sure you are doing this in a location as free of contaminants and dust as possible. Also, if local weather indicates high humidity, wait until it's dryer. Nothing ruins a paint job more than high humidity.

    Not much to it. Been doing this in my garage for years to motorcycle farings, sliders, grille guards, and other small pieces for years. I never pay anyone and they all turn out well. Just take your time. These pieces are so small that even minor imperfections will hardly be noticeable. Otherwise, you can pay a shop to do it for you depending on how much cash you want to lay out on the project.
