    OEM COLOR MATCH UPDATE

    I got an update from our shipper that our OEM color match material is still on the train to us, and has been since the 18th of May. They said it could arrive anywhere from tomorrow to Wednesday of next week, so that definitely pushes my estimate back. Unless we get it in tomorrow, we will probably begin shipping out parts at the end of next week. In the meantime, we are making preparations so we can ship them out as quickly as possible when the material comes in. Thanks for your patience everyone!

    Has there been any further info on the bending/flexing of the grill cover?

    Mine came in with a kink but I just took a heat gun and slowly massaged it back. Have not put it on yet but I don't see it being a issue.

    Finally had a chance to install my kit. Started with the rear caps, followed by the front caps...went on pretty well. I do see a tiny corner crack is chrome showing on the back like someone else posted.

    The lower grill surround seemed to dry fit well...snapped into place, but once installed there was a bump toward the left (facing the truck) bottom edge under the grill. That actually disappeared the next day. The long adhesive strip along the bottom part didn’t seem to stick...maybe it was that little adhesion enhancer pad that got dried out between parts? Hope it doesn’t blow off on the highway!

    On bulge cover I ended up with gaps around the top edges...disappointing. I may try some T-Rex double stick tape in there.

    The other thing is the color match...the parts around the grill seem to have a bit of grey in the color. Not normally noticeable, but there.

    I’d say the bumpershellz are a win...for the money, nice enhancement. Not so much on the grill surround parts.

    Recently bought the truck used (2015, 111k mi.) and wanted to keep the upgrades reasonable. If I had to do it again, I’d have ponied up and extra $200 to do the TRD grill/surround/bulge, and might have been able to offset that selling the old parts.

    The overall look is good...if I can get the bulge edges down, I’ll be happy.

    I've talked to some guys who got some thin 3M tape in that gap to get it to lay down. Do you want me to send you out some?

    OEM COLORS SHIPPING THIS WEEK

    Colored material is slated to come in tomorrow after another delay. Those are going to be going out fast and furious once we get it in, so I'm hoping to have the majority of you guys with your parts in hand by next week!

    OK, I've been looking for this kind of info.
    This pertaining to Eccological, not to Sparks Toyota.
    I too have been waiting and waiting for my order to arrive. Leti who works in the front office has a tough job because they are falling behind in orders and have not kept up on keeping buyers aware.
    I can understand since people don't like bad news.
    I emailed them over the weekend after more than a month without status and asked for a return of remittance, which they did instantly.
    My hope is that they work through their growing pains and become a viable aftermarket business for our trucks.
    My recommendation to you is to call and talk with them first before placing an order.

    This is a good idea if there is a certain date that you absolutely need it by. We should be able to predict fairly accurately on individual orders. In general, we are at about a 3 week lead time (for non-OEM colors only). Things have begun to stabilize so we should be able to start bringing that down even as we roll out new options. The growing pains are real, but we're figuring it out lol

    just installed the hood bulge and grill surround. Put the bumper caps on this morning top corners not quite flush lets see what the sun does to lay them down. otherwise looks good. I do not notice the grey tint some have mentioned with the super white

    So silver isn't an option I guess.

    Did anyone with a silver truck do the matte black and have pictures? How close does the tpo black caps match the black plastic on the bumpers?

    I did black TPO on mine. The picture makes it look like the covers are darker, but it’s a pretty good match. If you are looking for it, you can tell my center valance is a little faded, but it’s really not noticeable in person.

    Thank you. How did you end up with the silver surround instead of chrome?

    I ordered the silver bumper covers, hood bulge and grille surround from ecoological about 3 weeks ago. It’s an option but you have to find the link in one of the pages on this thread or click the far right tab on their website and it will give you the option if it’s still available.

    Edit. Just checked. It’s still showing available.

    go to their website, click “more” and click on Toyota OEM color matched overlays, click the first option for the overlays for grille/hood bulge and select silver. Says they have 5 left.

    I see lots of the white. How close is the gloss black to paint code 202?
