    I have an 05 silver streak tacoma and had thought abt partially debadging my truck. But then i got to thinking, what if the paint has faded enough that it will show where the emblem once was? Do you guys think it will be noticable?

    You should be fine! I have a 05 SWB Taco and I debadged the whole thing and there was no difference in the paint coloration and I live in AZ with the hottest temps and sun :)

    Post up some pics when you're finished. I think that'd look good. The emblems on my SSM truck are black, but I put them all back on. I would like to see the tailgate w/ just the Tacoma emblem.

    You should be fine. If the paint is faded a bit it's nothing a few minutes polishing wouldn't fix. And you're silver streak, it'll hide minor imperfections a hell of a lot better than indigo or black.

    It'll be a pain in the ass if it's cold. Grab a hair dryer to warm it up a bit, should make life easier. Or just wait for a warm day...but who wants to wait that long? I'm sure you're already digging through the archives for some Silver Streak debadged pics. Just be sure to pick a few with lifts and other cool shit so you have ammo when you ask him for the lift. :D

    Yeah man i hope so cuz id love to see our truck in person. those rims are swweeet!
    haha yeah man i know, im just not sure if i want to lift it cuz its a prerunner. and my tires are only a year old so it'll look funny if i lift it and have the little tires on there.

    Ill let you know if i plan on selling them, but right now prolly not. just till i make sure this is what i want to do.

    You guys dont think the black emblems will look out of place do you? All the pics ive seen have either been on trd offroads with the black mirrors and black handles to tie it in nicely, or if its a sport, they had black rims.

    Black emblems look good on a SSM truck. I did it to mine and don't regret it for a second.
