    Have not been able to find a place to get type to match the ones in the word TACOMA on my 2011 doors. Want to make the word "TORO". Any link to a source would be greatly appreciated.

    I believe what you are referring to is called a font.

    GEE I never thought of that. I'm getting a "DEVIL HORN" emblem and thought it would be cool to have "TORO" = bull. Maybe I'll think about "DEVIL".

    I have seen a Tundra and a Tacoma with words on the doors & tail gate like they were Toyota options.

    Build thread in sig...
    just find a local vynil printing place. usually custom sign shops can also do decals. if you show them the badge on the truck, they can usually match the font fairly easily, and pop out a few stickers for you, same day.

    How about sending me a PM to get in contact with him. I am looking for metal fonts to match the emblem on my doors.

    I have been advised to get glue on plastic letters. Less expensive and can be replaced if they fall off or are stolen and still look good.

    It took me 15 minutes with fishing line, goof off, a towel and a heat gun to get stock plastic letter off. 3m adhesive wont let go.

    Found chrome plastic stick on letters at "PEP BOYS" for .99 cents each. The "i" ( lower case ? ) is higher than the other letters. Does this look correct????

    What are your reasons? :confused: It is supposed to go on each door and the "Devil Horns" logo on the front grill.

    Here I put scotch tape on them to attach to the door before I make them permanent. What do you think???
