    Hi Everyone,

    I have my 07 Tacoma Double Cab 4.0L in Speedway Blue and I have been removing all the chrome that came on it when I bought it in 2010. I am working my way to converting the truck to a Speedway Blue and Black look.

    The truck had on the chrome windshield washer jets with LEDs in them before and i would like to keep that look (I know its not the best look but I like it)... the thing is i want to find black ones with the white LEDs. Has anyone come across these or has any places that I could check out? I live in Ontario Canada and would like to find something that won't be a lot in shipping if possible.

    Thanks in advance for the help

    Yeah I was thinking that would work too... I just don't want it to peal off. Have you worked with plastidip?

    It won't peel off if you do it right. If you were to get really unlucky with rocks or something on them then MAYBE you'd have to touch it up, but I think it would be difficult to get hit with a rock on that part of your truck.

    After about 3 days it cures and is actually fairly tough unless you want to peel it off.

    yeah I checked out the ebay and i like the second link ones... the issue i saw was that the Toyota Tacoma did not come up as a compatible vehicle

    worst case i will plastidip them...

    as for the chrome handle thread... i have still yet to remove the damn handle covers... now i am just waiting for it to warm up...

    as far as being compatible, i don't think it'll matter much, because iirc they are held on by a washer, versus fitting perfectly into the cuts that our hoods have, good luck!

    All good!

    I have the nozzles on order... now the waiting game begins!


    Hey Greg, Thanks for the help with the automotive trim removal kit! I am going to pick one up this weekend so I have all my ducks in a row for the spring...

    Just an update...

    I received the jets from ebay (black with white LEDs) and installed them perfectly last night. The only issue that i had was that the LEDs are actually blue :facepalm: so right now i am in talks with the supplier to resolve the issue. other then that i would only recommend using a small tension hose clamp to secure the line on the jets...

    Thanks for the help
