    Over the weekend I have been working on a new emblem for the new front grille (which has yet to arrive). I started with an emblem from an old FJ and for those of you that have purchased them you know they come with white letters and a black background. Well, I wanted the letters to match the color of the truck so I took Dupli Color Bed Liner spray and sprayed the entire emblem to give it a rough texture. Then I taped it out and sprayed the letter with silver streak. No, its not perfect, but I was proud of my work given this is the 2nd thing I have ever painted. It is a good cheap mod if someone is looking for one!

    Looks good! I would have done something similar to color-match my truck but its white to begin with so I lucked out!

    GrillCraft, I was on the list for a Satoshi but I ended up changing my mind and going the cheaper route.

    Ah I see. Yeah caps arent cheap. But at least you know if you ever wanted to do the Satosh that you have the GC to do it.
