    Honestly I don't know that I would be able to sell at a price that people would be interested in. Takes LOT of man hours.

    I may start making these soon but price is gonna be about $350-$400 due to all the time involved. First I have to do a little more research on a coupe changes I want to make in their design. I'm gonna put a separate feeler post up and if there is enough interest I may go for it.

    If you can put out a price for the parts too if you want that would be cool. By parts i mean the letters and the back. Little to no time for you but you can still charge a premium for your design.

    Alight folks, after a lot of arm twisting by folks in this forum and others I have decided to put a feeler post out to see how much real interest there is in these LED back lit TRD Pro Grill letters. I was hesitant only because these things take a lot of man hours to build and build right and because of that the price would need to reflect all of that time spent.

    Initial price for first 5 sets: $350 + $8 shipping. Payment required up front to hold your spot.

    Manufacturing lead time 3-4 weeks.

    Letter Colors available: Damn near any Toyota color made.

    LED colors available: white only

    If you are interested or have questions please post here.

    Letters are 3D printed, sanded, primed, and painted. Then lined with chrome tape, LED strip lights installed, wired, and soldered. Acrylic backing is laser cut, laser etched along the edge to refract the light, and epoxied onto the letters. Letters are attached to the grill using double sided 3M tape just like stock letters. Wiring harness with an in line fuse is built to run behind the grill and tap into a 12V power source (parking lights) and ground. Letters will plug into the wiring harness using male/female molex style pins.


    To Install:

    -Remove existing grill letters, using braided fishing line and a heatgun/hair drier, just like a normal badge

    -Remove grill

    -Run the wires for each letter through the existing alignment pin holes

    -Stick the letters to the grill using the double sided tape

    -Plug the letter wiring into the wiring harness and heat shrink the connections to seal out any moisture

    -Install grill

    -Install t-tap onto a 12V power wire (parking light wire is a good option) or if you want the lights on all the time you could utilize and add a circuit and tap into the fuse box to a keyed on circuit, or t-tap into any keyed on 12v power wire.

    -Install ground ring terminal to the ground that is located on the driver’s side fender well/engine bay wall.


    Again this is just a feeler thread. If we get 5 folks interested then we will proceed with the build.
