    I recently had a forum member here hook me up with a Satoshi. Well, today I got it back from the paint shop and thought I'd post up a few pics. Well, at least a link to my pics :D

    I needed a new front bumper, too, since the old one had several deep scratches and gouges from the previous owner. So figured I'd get the front bumper painted and left the lower center black.

    Thanks, TY!!! The Satoshi turned out great! :cheers:

    I had it in the shop (dealership) for the steering wheel shake while my paint guy finished up the grille and bumper. Once all was back together, the Toyota techs that worked on the 'shake' were very complimentary of the grille. By the way, the 'shake' is now gone, too! So it was a pretty good day for the 'Shortbus'! Can't thank you enough, Ty :bowdown:

    They are 265/70's on 17x9 Addicts. Thanks all for the compliments! As previously mentioned, Ty gets the credit, here.

    Hope to be doing the BHLM this afternoon. Time (and weather) permitting, then I'm pulling the stereo and painting it and the temp control center, black.

    O/T, anyone know how to remove the two plastic trim pieces that hold the center airvents on either side of the stereo? Whoever detailed the truck last left armorall-like spooge on the silver and it's permanently spotted/stained. Might have to replace them or paint them, too.

    HomerTaco... my sentiment, exactly! there are no Satoshi grilles around here, so mine sticks out like :thumbsup:

    WW_FIREFIGHTER, your truck was one of a couple that inspired me to do this, so thank you, sir, for responding :cheers:
