    I used a Dremel to cut all the pieces holding the stock center grill..
    (There's a lot of write-ups in TW forums... Thanks for all the help guys!)

    As it sits right now... still waiting for the Toyota emblem I ordered, and free time to paint... weather permitting.
    The wife didn't want me to paint in the garage and was planning to paint outside but the weather sucked ass here in Florida :(

    Next project would be to do the bottom grill... Still debating if i'll do satoshi or just have it flushed with the bumper.. (Suggestions?)



    EDITED: (Update)

    Emblem ordered from Toyota, You will also need a bunch of stainless steel nuts n boltz.

    Looking good. :)

    Personally, if you're going to do the lower valence, I would keep it recessed like the satoshi. I don't think it would look good flush.
