    My brakes are toast so I'm planning on upgrading to tundra brakes pretty soon. Anyone know if I can run them with the stock 16" wheels I have now? I know some 16" wheels will work but I'm not sure what the backspacing is on these.

    Your wheels are different from mine, is the backspacing the same?

    I know I'm pissed. In the garage it looked great and really even but once I got it on the truck and in the sun it showed. I only have about $60 in the whole thing, including the camper, so I'll probably buy more dupli color and spray it again.

    But still not crazy about the color

    I scuffed the camper, applied two coats of primer, and then two coats of dupli color (I guess more coats in certain areas than others) and no clear coat for now because I didn't want to seal in a bad paint job

    If there is such a thing as a satin clear coat I would think that it would make it less metallic...

    I would start by buying the correct paint. This company was great and the rattle can matched my color perfect, I mean perfect, imperial jade can't be an easy one to match.

    Select toyota, your year, tacoma, color, than buy it.

    Looks like duplicolor sent you straight up metallic silver lol. Sometimes that happens when dealing with a large corp.
