    Hello all,

    I have a 07 4x4 Tacoma that I bought in November and already the front grill looks like its corroding on the chrome looking part. Well I don’t think it's covered by the warranty so does anyone one know were I could buy a new one that’s not just the insert? It doesn’t have to be a stock grill. Thank for the help.

    Screw paying $250 for a color matched one. You can get the paint to do it yourself for $50, and have some paint leftover to fix it when it gets dinged up again :D http://www.paintscratch.com

    I'm still waiting on the paint to paint my chrome grill surround to match my truck, but once I get it done I'll post pics.

    I know this is an old(ish) thread, but I'm thinking about painting the chrome grill surround. Have you painted yours, TacoCo, and can you post some pics?
