    looks great. 'useless' but adds a touch of flair to our otherwise bland engine bays.

    your opinion. If he goes to meets people will be looking in his engine and seeing what he has added. I think it looks awesome. What paint did you use?

    I used Rustoleum High Performance Wheel Paint. I only paid ~$6. Thanks for the compliment.

    Thanks for your honesty. May be useless to some, but most Taco owners really love their truck and what to make it unique.

    Thanks for the compliment.

    Thanks for the compliment.

    Thanks. I noticed that also. I did not put that pic there. I think the administrator must do that, and they chose the first pic posted.

    Looks good Dalesrn!!

    Finally got around to doing this as well. Fun little project to "customize" our taco's. I'm the one in there tinkering and doing oil changes and such so I'll enjoy seeing it when I pop the hood. ;)

    Always wondered why they bothered to put that little cutout over a connector on the passenger side.
