    Well my '05 Tacoma is paid off and as I wait for the title to arrive in the mail, now I want to fix it up...

    I painted my grille yesterday using a can of that plasti-dip stuff. It went well, the grille is EASY to remove and I have been planning on getting a black grille anyway, and this for me - is just a temporary measure to determine whether it is something I wanted to spend money on.

    So as I have seen some people mentioning it may peel or come off I took that into consideration, knowing this is something I wanted to try out.

    Cleaned thoroughly, applied 3 coats - that was all I could buy is the one can...they were about an hour apart. So far, so good...

    I am going to get some pictures too.

    Thanks. Good job.

    Any thought of leaving the Toyota emblem stock?

    I have never seen that combo and curious how it would look.
