    Hello all:

    I have read a lot of posts and looked at what seems like hundreds of pictures of different vinyl inserts for the tailgate and dashboard inlays and also for the dash bezels and other highlights. I would like black letters for the tailgate and Quicksand for the interior. I would also like the black out letters for the chrome name plates on the side. I'm not sure how to get them off to paint and I'm not comfortable trying to paint them in place. I have seen vinyl that covers most of the letter and just has some chrome showing on the side.

    I am not sure which dealer is legit and which products are good/better/best. I just paid a pile of cash for this thing and I don't want to put junk on it.

    Thanks,

    Pat

    PM @rrentrop for the vinyls such as inlays for door sills and/or badge overlays. PM @tacos4cheap for raised Tacoma letters for the glove box. Both great sellers and fellow TW members.

    Welcome by the way and congrats on the purchase!

    I put BDTrims inserts on the glovebox and tailgate. Very satisfied with both. Consider removing your chrome badges and replace with black badges. Very reasonable on eBay.

    Use plastidip on your door emblems.

    How do I remove the badges without causing damage to the paint?

    There's a great video either on here or YouTube about how to plastidip the emblems without removing them. I'm just too lazy to do it myself. I bought a black 4x4 tundra badge for my tailgate and it looks kinda cheesy next to the chrome V6 badge xD

    I second Tufskinz for the tailgate. I bought some red ones for my tailgate and they are really nice. They are raised a little bit so they sit up a bit out of the stamped lettering kind of like the OEM ones. I'd post a pic if I had one but the quality is really good and they should last for a long time too if not forever if installed correctly.

    There should be a drop down menu on the link to change color options.
