    I did the same setup on my silver sky metallic. I think the all black bumpers look really good.

    Wondering what happened to all the chatter and buzz about the bulge and grille surround covers. This thread has gone pretty silent....
    Nothing much from the testers, @EC1, hmmmmmm. Mine are supposed to be coming in June- hope the shipping issue has been addressed.

    I was starting to wonder the same thing. I wonder if everyone has ordered and are waiting. I haven’t ordered yet because I’m waiting for people to post reviews and pics here. Not too excited about the few people talking about a crease in the product from shipping.

    I was honestly wondering if @EC1 left the company or something as he hasn’t uttered a word on here since the group buy opened up in April??? Seems kind of weird to not have replied or spoken to any of the issues that have been posted, etc. Where are you?? Lol

    Just canceled my order today after over a month since I ordered. I called last week and I was told it was ready to be shipped. Today, they told me, they were out of the product. I ordered the MGM on the 22nd of April.

    When I picked mine up at his shop as a part of the beta test I got a tour. There is definitely a lot that goes into the production. I know they were having trouble getting the permits for the paint booth but think that’s cleared up per some of EC1 last posts. Mine has held up great so far and I like the product for what it is and the price. I can’t speak to any shipping damage as I live about 30 minutes from the shop so was able to pick up. I’m more than happy to answer questions any of you have in regard to the product.

    The beta test was months ago. Here are the pics from my install.

    Yeah I guess it's not beta testing it's more of them installing them and using my truck to take pictures since I live in Sacramento.

    Gotcha, I know from my conversations with him and some of the other testers they were going to modify some of machining to clean up the fit. Good luck with the install and I definitely recommend a second set of hands.

    It’s not very noticeable at all. The match is actually really good, I wouldn’t worry.

    Definitely test fit multiple times before peeling tape to check contours and coverage of the chrome bulge. Have someone help you if possible because you have to peel all the tape at once and then work it into position. When applying the bulge I would pay special attention to where it marries to the hood and make sure you get it seated deep enough to hide the chrome. You’ll see what I mean when you’re going through the fitting.

    Hey guys
    I was one of the early adopters and ordered the TPO parts for my Limited. After removing the kinks caused by the shipping box, I finally got a chance to install all the pieces. I am happiest with the bumper caps, then the grill surround. The bulge cover just didn't feel right and it showed some chrome on top but I left it on thinking I will get used to it.

    The hood bulge stayed on for a day of local driving. Day 3 on a high speed drive, the bulge cover gave out and air seemed to start pushing it up from underneath. I pulled over and (gently) tore it off and stored it in the bed.

    Some pictures below.
    I haven't received a reply regarding my shipping concern from the vendor. I will report this as well to see what they say.

    Thanks

    GUYS!!! I am so sorry. I have been completely pulled off all of this stuff to work on supply chain issues. I'm sorry for leaving everyone in the dark for the last couple weeks. I am actually on my way out of town in the next 5 minutes, so I wanted to jump on here and post so you guys don't think I'm dead, or that any issues are being ignored. Haven't had a chance to look at messages or anything yet, but if you've messaged me, I WILL GET BACK TO YOU. Promise! I've already spoken to some of you that have called in about any issues, and whatever those have been are being addressed. I know we had an issue with parts getting damaged in shipping. We've put a lot of work into that, so hopefully that will be a thing of the past. If you are having that issue, or any other issued, just call our customer service number. They are also completely slammed right now, so If you get a voicemail, just make sure to include in your comments that "Grant said to prioritize you, and call you back."

    Updates on PAINT MATCH shipping

    Our material got delayed, so we will be receiving it the end of this week instead of earlier like I had said. It wouldn't have made that big of a difference because our machines are barely starting to open up next week as well. Some parts may begin shipping out at the end of next week, but I would count on your order being shipped the week after.

    Our paint booth is now fully functional. We painted our first test part at the beginning of the week. Obviously we are way too underwater with things right now to begin opening anything else up for sale, but that will be ready to go as soon as we catch up.

    Again guys, I am very sorry about basically going AWOL. Everything is fine over here. Things have just ramped up faster than we anticipated, but we're getting on top of it. Again, if you are having any issues at all, give the customer service number a call. We'll fix anything that needs fixing. They will probably reach out to me to help, but it's still probably the fastest way to get answers for the next little bit. As soon as I get back in town I will start going through my inbox, and making sure you guys are getting taken care of.

    I gotta say that I was impressed with how great their customer service has been. I ordered the grille/bulge surround overlay on 5/19. Then about two hours later I convinced myself to order the rear bumper covers in OEM color. I emailed their customer service because the site said 14-21 days, but on here said 4-8 weeks so I wasn't sure what their current time frame was. The rep e-mailed me back within two hours and saw I had placed two orders and offered to ship them at the same time saving me $22 in shipping. Before I could even reply I got notified of a refund to my paypal account for $22. She confirmed it would probably be closer to the 8 week mark, which was totally fine.

    Fast forward about 4 days later I decided if I was going to cover the chrome I might as well do the front bumper covers as well. I found the link on their website and replied to the initial e-mail asking if they were still allowing orders on the front bumper covers since it wasn't under the normal Tundra dropdown on their website. She confirmed and I went ahead and purchased them. Again, responses within just a couple hours. The next day she e-mailed me and said she saw I had placed a third order lol and asked if I would be ok having the front and rear bumper covers ship together since those would probably be ready first and if it ended up being less in shipping she would refund back the difference. This was awesome that she suggested this and wanted to share my experience.
