    In case anyone else needs to replace the trim under the headlights and doesn't want to deal with paint. I bought the replacements off Amazon for under 20 I think. Then I had a roll of Oracle 651 white vinyl. Wrapped them up and can't even tell they are not painted. Used a heat gun to smooth and stretch the vinyl around the trim. Super easy and looks really good!15990906499748045273581770860473.jpg

    You can buy painted to match ones on eBay. Just got some for mine for $40
    Not OME but fit ok after bending the tabs a bit.

    O’Reilly‘s auto parts has the color match for the white 1997 Tacoma in a can for 15.00,

    Because the original paint has faded it will not match perfectly but will be close

    Damn wish I would have known about the paint. I have a spot on my bed that the paint has flaked off. Think the match is close enough on these to not be an I sore if I prep and paint one spot?
