    You'd have to wash it every day... Maybe lay a blue pearl over top so color flops at different angles

    Tnx buddy. 1 more question. Since I've been getting my rotations free with toyota care I have not had to torque to spec anything yet. I noticed you have wheel spacers too. I believe those for my spidertrax are 97lbs, I found the steel and aluminum specs for other models but what are the specs for the stock pro alloy wheels?
    I just want to make sure once I take the wheels off, I torque them correctly, and I might as well check my 1.25 inch spacers too. Don't know if you know offhand but if u do, that'll help me bc I'm having a hard time finding it. Thanks again.

    That makes me think that you're thinking......red? I think there's a company that can color match your body paint if you'd like.

    How easy was the Dupli-Color kit to use ? Are you happy with the results and did you have to get a Clear coat to put on or does kit come with it ?
    I have same kit sitting on my toolbox waiting for some free time to do it.

    I did my 13 crewmax 6 months ago and they still look great. I would recommend putting 2 coats of clear overIMG_20191123_174653375.jpg IMG_20191015_203644541_MP.jpg IMG_20191015_203636001.jpg the paint.It makes them easier to clean.I went with red also.I like the TRD stickers.I will probably get the stickers and then clear coat mine.I painted my daughter's calipers on her 2016 Volvo and they looked great!
