    Painted stock black side mirrors white. Next are the white door handles, white rear bumper, and Satoshi grill. By then I'd have some coin saved for 2.5" 2.5" Bilstein height adjustable front shocks. 1" rear block 265/70-17 rubbers and a set of 17" alloy rims.
    Any body know how to remove the rear door handles from the rear doors of a quad cab. I don't see the same quarter-sized hole with the plastic cover on the side like the front doors. Thanks.[​IMG]

    Thank-you Mr Jones. Looks like way more work than the front. At least now I can match the rear doors with the front. Been driving 'round with questions as to why my door handles are different colours. Much appreciated. I'll be attempting to satoshiing my grill. Take care![​IMG]

    No problem. Good luck on the satoshi, it's not that hard as it might seem.

    Seems that the hardest part would be the fibre glass and body filler job. Got a buddy a a body shop that could paint the trim for $50. If I get it right then I wouldn't have to get homer to make one for me. I think I'm in 80's on his list. We'll see. Sorry, homer, maybe[​IMG]
