    So i have been thinking of getting rid of some of this chrome...

    [​IMG]

    I keep questioning how I want to do it though.... here are the scenarios...

    Paint the grill surround, grill, emblem, and bumper all black, all the same shade...

    I'll be doing the BHLM too...

    I think i may leave the badges since they have been on for so long... maybe just paint them all black

    I like the blacked out look but some hints of chrome may be ok idk... i don't want to over do it

    Should I paint them Satin Black like the wheels, get a rattle can of the toyota black, flat black????


    i'm indecisive to begin with but this is killing me!!!!!

    help help please!!!

    Can somebody just put of a picture of their all black stock pic? It came solid black from the factory too. Maybe you can find the pieces on ebay that match you original paint. If you get bored, swap them out. $.02

    i blacked out my bumpers with bedliner...........painted my emblems flat black, replaced my grille with a black one from ebay, painted the grille emblem flat black, painted the trim on the corner lights flat black.............all on my silver truck. the bedliner has held up extremely well..........it aint going anywhere.

    yours looks great...

    i think i might start off painting the grill surround and bumper flat black

    leave the emblem and badges chrome for now to see how that accents things




    edit: i'll take the grill off to paint but did you take anthing off the bumper or did you just mask it off??

    here's mine, pretty sure it was like this stock. I want to paint the front toyota emblem flat black to match everything else, Tacoman did you just spray flat black on it? or did you have to spray some kind of sealer on top of that to keep it from flaking off as well? guessing you had to put blue tape around the areas that you didn't want black correct? thanks

    ofr the grille emblem......i took it off the grille.....it just pops out, then cleaned it........sprayed a few coats of adhesion promoter on it, then a few coats of duplicolor flat black. let it dry for a few hours...then pop it back in.
