    I have been working on mine. I just cut the emblem surround out of it and popped the emblem on. I'm going to put some mesh behind it and repaint the grill

    Nice! :thumbsup:

    Would love to know the tool(s) you used to remove the original center Toyota symbol...? Also how are you mounting the "TOYOTA"? I was +/- putting mesh as well but am leaning towards it as way to mount the raptor lights.

    Overall I think this a better looking & cheaper alternative to the TRD Pro Grill.

    I used a drimel tool and a small back saw blade. I smoothes all the cuts with some sandpaper. The saw blade makes less of a mess because the drimel tool melts the plastic some. The Toyota emblem comes with little clips on the back. I will drill the holes close in the size and glue it on.

    Awesome, thanks for the tips. What mesh are you going to go with?

    I need to paint the grill. It's been too cold so it's on hold for the moment.

    got an SR-5 insert yesterday and gonna be starting on this same mod pretty soon. I think I'm gonna go with a custom car grills mesh, just trying to decide if I want to pay for precut or not.

    Does any one know if an sr5 front grill can be used to replace the 2017 grill on the tac sport. I was just going to paint mine black, but if the sr5 black would fit I would prefer doing that.
    Thanks!
