    Tufskinz is another option with different colors to choose from. Taking them out and painting/vinyl is a pain for the middle two so overlay is the easiest option just in case you were contemplating that as well.

    unfortunately you can still see the chrome underneath from side angles.
    Best option is to remove and wrap or paint

    I agree. i currently have my trust in pieces because i removed all the chrome and grey pieces in the dash/doors/center console area and are having them painted Barcelona red except for the main large center piece will be black. it will be fabulous. pics will come when i get them back from pain on Saturday.

    Just know you have to take your entire dash trim apart. Its not hard really, just nerve racking and time consuming.

    Nice...I think I need to follow in @SR5 AZUL and take my dash apart and paint chrome rings and control knobs. I have vent covers on now, but like others have said, certain angles you can still see the chrome.

    How was the steering wheel swap? Been contemplating looking for a leather tacoma or tundra one to replace my composite one.

    I see you couldnt get the 4x4 knob apart either... :annoyed:Looks great! Why not just paint that volume button?

    Thanks, as does yours!

    Cool! Yes on the steering wheel. Does the light still come on when you turn on your parking lights? Or you painted over it?

    Many... will update later.
    It looks great! What paint did you use? I was thinking of trying a vinyl wrapping for mine... not sure, I am an appraiser not an artist.

    I agree, the grey plastic and chrome emblem on the steering wheel look a bit dated. I like it when some of us carbon fiber wrap and paint them different colors too.
