    Last update I want to do on my truck for now. I have a white 2010 Tacoma TRD Sport and I dislike the gray insert and want to paint it black to go with my white & black look.

    Any suggestions?

    Why not get a grillcraft or do the satoshi?

    I'm not sure how easy it is to paint the gray grill..

    Just did the exact thing tonight to the center of my grille. I just sanded it down, taped off the chrome and then used just about a whole can of black krylon fusion.
