    I painted the badge and fender flares on my taco and was seeing what you all thought of it.

    And here's a couple of the new fender flares.

    Definatly Unique if you go flat black thats what every other tacoma looks like including mine, I think it could turn out good if you continue and come up with a theme, But definatly not my style.

    yeah it definitely needs a little more to make it work but I dunno. I was just tired of the straight black because I see those everywhere.

    I think if your down for alittle more flashy Decking it out with some Lights interior and maybe a few exterior, Also your centercaps that are flat black could even go green not sure how that'd look bet definatly a few more options to pull it together.

    I like it. I'm tired of seeing flat black too. I think you should paint a few more things green too but not too much. Maybe the brake calipers?

    yeah I never even thought of that... You can barely seen my calipers with the wheels I have now though, but I definitely agree that I'll need more to make this work. I was thinking of doing the badges as well but that would probably be about it.

    Not my style, however it looks good, if you continue the theme I think it could look better.
