    So I couldn't wait. I put a coat of wax on before I installed. At least right now (in low light) I am very happy with the results.

    Nice looking ride! What did you use to black out your rims, assuming those are the stock 16's

    Looks good man. I put a few coats of wax on mine to protect it.

    So did I prior to putting it on.

    To an untrained eye it looks spot on. I can tell there is a small difference but looks good. Thanks for the paint recommendation

    Man, why did they quit making Tacomas in radiant red? Why??? That color does it for me far more than any of the others. Just got my '13 saturday, and don't laugh, but I got super white. It's clean.
