    image.jpg image.jpg I just painted my yota emblem to match the 5.7L background and calipers on truck. Do you think it's a go or no go?

    As long as you enjoy it, that's all that matters. It does allow you "stand out" from the rest.

    Yea that was one main reason. Also I missed my chance to submit my mod. Maybe next time. I put courtesy lights in the door. I'm going to do a tutorial on it tomorrow when I get time.

    Whatever trips your trigger and as long as you like it. There are lot of ideas here. Go with whatever suits you. I myself like the look of the calipers. Very nifty and didn't cost you more than 5$ probably.

    For the calipers I bought the caliper paint kit from autozone. I end up doing both of my cars with it and still have some left over. And I used rust-oleum plastic paint to do the emblem. I think I'm going to get the clear gloss coat and try that over it to make it shine more. But this is day 2 and I like it so far.
