    I was searching for over a year for a Speedway blue or a Silver Streak Mica that was 2009 or newer, double cab, long bed, 4x4, trd, sport. Wow they are very hard to find FOR SALE in Florida. My friends started calling this vehicle the "Great White Buffalo" or "the Unicorn", a Mythical creature that you only hear stories of. It became a huge joke between my friends and even my coworkers. I finally found one and it was 300 miles away. Only catch, it was Magnetic Gray. Looks like Magnetic Gray Metallic is my new favorite color. lol. Now that I own a MGM, Its really grown on me.

    I absolutely love vehicles with white paint and blacked-out windows and accessories. That's why I bought my 2011 AC Tacoma in white. I loved the look until earlier this year when I noticed some dull spots appearing on my hood. Since then, they have gotten bigger and I now have one on the rear door. They are spots where the paint is oxidizing! My truck is not even 3 years old and the paint job is fuc&ed up!! From what I've read, Toyota uses a 1 stage painting process for the white paint. Supposedly, the clear coat is contained within the paint itself and "rises" to the top as the paint dries. In other words, no clear coat is added.
    I am headed to my Toyota dealership next weekend to find out what they intend to do about it.

    The last pic I posted? That would be my truck and the build thread link is my signature.

    It's not really updated yet since I've done the fiberglass and 35's.

    I have a MGM so I'm partial, but other than that I think Pyrite Mica is the second best. Every time I see it on the road I have second thoughts. I was one hour away from buying a 2013 DCLB Pyrite Mica, but somebody stole it right out from under me at the dealership. Pyrite Mica blacked out is awesome, looks military almost. The other thing Pyrite Mica has going for it is it's rare! I see one a month maybe. I see clones of my MGM almost every day. I still love MGM and would go with it again if I had to though.

    I bought mine used & looked at a bunch. My first choice was an India Ink one, but it had a bunch of scratches. I love the Magnetic Gray too, but couldn't find one. I settled for a Silver Streak one because it had good miles & all the options I wanted. Now that I own it, it seems like there are a million of them out there.
