    Well over this week I have gotten my warrantied hybrid audio speakers back, a new alpine pdx5, mini h1 retro kit, trd exhaust, swi-jack for my head unit, and I think that about it :D

    My truck is almost all black and I was thinking about painting the exhaust so it doesnt stand out too much... What are you thoughts??? if so pls recommend a good paint to use

    Here is what it looks like now minus the chrome badges. headlight housings will also be black...

    ive got a superwhite 2006. ive hought about painting my exhaust tip as well. though it is factory, over time it will beome shabby looking. i think black would be sharp.

    if your new trd exhaust is chrome...id say paint it up :thumbsup:

    I think you'll probably have to powder coat it otherwise it will soon look like shit....and it will last longer anyway

    High temp engine block paint / BBQ grill paint would work well.

    I don't believe powder coating would hold up to high exhaust temperatures?

    Ive had a previous exhaust jet coated. Great stuff only thing is u have to ship whatever you want coated to the warehouse. Jet coat is specially made for high temp applications like turbos and exhuast pipe.
