Re: black pearl emblem mod

Doesn't Toyota stock black ones? Sounds easier to get new black ones instead of removing the old ones, painting, glueing, reattaching...

I used Krylon fusion paint for mine and did them black to match my truck.
Didn't clear coat and still looking good a year later. I should clear them though.

1st Toyota Parts has the door emblems (red or black) for $20.99 a piece.

The tailgate badges aren't listed for some reason.

Re: black pearl emblem mod

So I painted my emblem black and I was wondering if i have to sand plus clear coat and if so what grain for the sandpaper and which brand of clear coat.

Re: black pearl emblem mod

Badges? You want/need some badges? (see avatar)

Actually, I'm thinking to either either paint the "Tacoma" badge Black or Speedway Blue. My lone badge on my DC is the "Tacoma" on the tailgate but I can practice on the two I took off the door.
