    Best 28 dollars I've spent for the truck. I was hoping that they would deliver my truck with out the front license but that didnt happen..lol Anyways I asked a vendor from a forum I frequent if they have bumper plugs and keyhole covers for the truck. low and behold he said, i can use the scion TC keyhole covers and use the universal bumper plugs they have. Hell why not....

    I have not used a keyhole in years, why when you have keyless entry? If the battery died for some reason you can always pop the plug back out and use the key. It looks smooth without the keyhole.

    the keyhole covers can come off. i've had the keyhole covers on my celica for more than 4 years now and no one even bothers to try to take them off. anyways it just makes the truck looks that much cleaner for me. it's alot cheaper than swapping out handles that for sure.

    anyways he's aware of the inquiry for the tacomas now so just email the guy. i think his name is Dev.

    I just wanted to say hello and say thanks to TRlPPlN for alerting me to your interest.

    We primarily sell products for the MR2 Spdyer which is a small niche for the last few years. The product that started it all and continues to bring us revenue is the keyhole covers which we sell and manufacture for most Toyota models and we have been very well established on many of these forums including those that are international. The business is just me, my partner and our small workshop but we have vast experience in perfecting these covers for the last five years and use only the best materials. Our paint supplier is one of the best and our paints have excellent color match.
    Although we would like to quit our full time jobs to do this, we are not ready to make that commitment at this time but we continue to enjoy making these covers for enthusiasts alike to fund our hobbies.


    Each forum has its own rules and I do not want to violate them by my solicitation on this thread but at the same time I like to answer any questions you may have concerning the product so I can answer them to your satisfaction.

    I will look into having a sales thread but for the time being I would like you to know that we have many Toyota paints and if we don't have your paint we can get it but it requires you to find two others willing to order in your color so we can make that investment.

    Thanks for your interest and we would be very happy to serve you with our product.
