    The one main thing I hate about my Tacoma on the interior is the radio cover plate and its shinyness. I would love to spray is black, or purchase a new black one if they make it. At any rate, is there a way to remove it without damaging it? Do they make black ones or at least is there a place I can buy a new silver one to spray so if I muck it up I havent ruined the only piece I can get?

    Thanks.

    There is a thread out there somewhere ... did mine over a year ago ... from the cheap looking silver to black ..... if you follow the steps of removal you will do okay ... a lot of tiny screws to remove after it is out so pay close attention ... digital pictures may work .... I had some leftovers so had to take it back apart ... do a search and it'll pop up .... did shift area as well ... taken with a phone camera so a bit weak ... looks great in person if I do say so myself.
