    alright so i can not decide on the color for my satoshi grill toyota logo.
    the grill is black, i have the MGM truck.
    so i know black or dark gray would not stick out.

    so i was thinking:
    white
    silver
    or black and outlined with white.

    so everyone knows i meant the "toyota" logo that goes on the satoshi, not the symbol already on my grill.

    what it currently looks like

    In my humble opinion, the Satoshi looks best with no emblem at all.

    I would like some additional options. I think both the silver and white would clash with the MGM. I have seen someone with a TRD symbol on the grill and that looked sweet.

    yeah thats what my dad was saying. but i just not sure what color would work.
    i think the closet would be the black and trimmed in white.

    but yeah i have seen the TRD ones, but the toyota just attracts me more

    Why would you want to destroy a 2011 grille?

    They're pretty unique right now, and tons of people have satoshies. (satoshui?)

    Maybe you could find someone to swap grilles with that likes the 2011 and recess the older one.

    If you do that, I say color-match the emblem with a white border. That looks nice on MGMs.
