    I have my stock skid plate. Not sure if it would fit but I would let it go for cheap plus you pay shipping?

    Not what I did to my Tacoma because that was yesterday...but BECAUSE of what I did to my Tacoma yesterday...my legs don't work too well today. Guess painting my rims on the truck was too many deep knee bends for as out of shape I am. Now to take some Advil and lurk on TW...that clear coat will happen later on...maybe next weekend ;)

    But it was still worth all that work, right? :) Ahh, you just reminded me, when I get around to doing my wheel painting project I'll just take off one wheel at a time to work on and throw on the spare. :p

    Yeah, if you have the facilities...it's probably best to remove one wheel at a time. Although, since I was painting all four at once (albiet ON the truck), the first one was pretty dry by the time I came back around on the first couple of coats.

    And it was WELL worth it! I love how it looks :D I've got some rough patches (in the inside of each of the openings) where I didn't get the spray in directly, but I'm thinking I'll just sand a bit before I do the clear coat. I did put the center caps back on though...since it had cured since yesterday, I thought it was safe. I'll just have to be careful prying them off to do the clear coat on the rims.

    Here's a couple more shots with the center caps on:

    Sorry for the weirdness of that second one...it was my cell phone HDR app...it seems to make anything reflective look odd. But I do like how it rendered the wheels.

    I still havent made up my mind if I'll paint mine and what color. I was thinking that bronze color would go good on black

    I don't know, I'm loving this graphite color. I guess it would depend on the bronze shade...some are kinda light so they look more gold which I don't like myself. But check out these wheels similar to yours in graphite (call me biased :D)

    View the build. Too much to list.
    Good advice. Depending on what he's using to bedliner, most kits and places have a special wash that helps promote adhesion so I'm sure it will get done.

    Wheels look great.

    Worst case scenario, get one of those foam wedge brushed for $0.50 and a paper cup... spray the paint into the paper cup and brush it on in those weird spots. Should blend okay especially for being in a "hidden" spot

    Next time you're here (with the truck) I'm definitely cleaning the inside of your truck. Good lord man. Hell even the Vibe needed some love.

    btw - missing your temp knob?
