    I have another conundrum. I've been thinking about trying out the grille without the letters. What do you guys think?

    Letters?

    That's what I'm still leaning towards also. The 05-11 grills, I think, are just too big to have a mesh only look. I think I'm going to keep the letters on for now. :D

    Painted the letters white the other day for anyone curious as to how it looks on a MGM.

    Looks like homertaco is having a monopoly on here lol. There is no need for fiberglass anymore. using the same plastic you remove from the grill can patch up the 4 cutouts on the sides. A little bit of bondo and paint and your set to go. Is BDF still making bolt on grills? Good for homertaco though helping out the handy inclined. ;)

    For those of you using double sided tape; try epoxying two small bolts to the TOYOTA emblem and fasten then on to the grill with nuts. Mine has held up almost 3 years with no problems.

    Oh and I vote white.

    I like that emblem on your grill, do you have a part # or source for purchase?

    Out of the choices I like MGM. White is a little too loud. MGM May end up being a tad subtle. A crimson or some shade of red would look classy and modern against the the black grille and your paint if it is possible and if you like it
