    I am thinking about painting my badges black on my 09 Pyrite Mica longbed. Has anyone ever seen any color of than black that looked good?

    I just painted my badges black (Krylon Fusion Flat) and put (most of) them back on my tailgate yesterday. I was fully debadged for about 7 months but I thought the rear looked too plain, especially with the shell on it.

    I left off the Toyota and PreRunner badges on the tailgate and the tacoma badges on the sides.

    Here are some (crappy phone) pics of my black badges installed on my 2010 Pyrite Mica:

    I also considered going olive drab and painted one of my extra Tacoma badges just to see if it looked good against the Pyrite Mica. I didn't like the contrast so I decided to go black instead:

    Good looking truck and thanks ASH!!! I think the black looks awesome...I bought some flat black krylon the other day as well as some flat clear coat. I figured the more coats of protection the better!! I will take pics once I finish them this weekend...I'm going for one of a kind!!!
