Anyone drive recent model Toyota Tacomas?

I've told myself that I'm buying a pickup truck as my next vehicle just because of how convenient they are. I think I've decided on a 2012 Toyota Tacoma. I like how it looks and it has the best gas mileage of any non-hybrid truck.

Do any of you guys have problems with yours?

I had to study the photos to find which part you painted. But it looks good either way.

While the cost of that can of soup has gone up to $2.69, which is over a 150% increase, the wages for the workers has stayed stagnate or in some cases gone down over the last few years. At some point corporations will put themselves out of business because the earned wages will not be enough to pay for items that are overpriced just to make more profit rather than distribute some of those profits to all workers of the company.

Sorry I did not intend to hijack this mans thread for my rant.
Guess I'll have to tell my neighbors who work at the plant here in Georgetown they aren't really living the American Dream. I'm sure most of them will feel really bad about how they are living....must be rough to be able to afford nice vacations, boats, and houses that are in very nice neighborhoods.

Yeah it's subtle, but it's there. I used Plastidip. A lot of people have used it on the Tacoma forum I'm a member of. Looks pretty cool and that part of my bumper was completely scratched to shreds so it now looks better, IMO.

I want to black out my badges as well. Can you post, in detail, what you did?

Plastidip is awesome. I can attest to how durable it is.

Eventually I'm going to plastidip my whole car.

Ok, I used painters tape to tape for about 3" in each direction around the badges (after about 1.5" overspray area).

So basically, keep 1.5" around the badge in each direction exposed.

Clean the badges perfectly, first with warm water, then dry them, then clean them with rubbing alcohol, AND COMPLETELY DRY THEM (VERY IMPORTANT)

Then give each badge about 6 coats. The first coat will have about 50% coverage. Don't go crazy on that first coat.

Time in between coats depends on the weather. It was 80 here today so I only did 10 min. If you're at 70 degrees give it 15 between each coat.

Make sure that you switch your angle of attack for each coat.

First coat start with the can angled down from the top of the badge, second coat angled up from the bottom, then left, then right, then a couple straight on.

Let it dry for about 10-15 min after the last coat, take off the tape (if you even used it, you don't have to), and peel the excess around the badges off.

It will come right off, but not off the badge.

Any errant spray comes off easy with the coarse side of a sponge and some warm water and a gentle rub.

Watch this vid. He says 30 min between coats, but that is too long, IMO.

Looks good on yours, the blue one in the vid should have left it chrome.

Window tint should be your next mod IMO

Yeah it's not a good enough contrast for his, IMO.

I'm just worried about window tint because it's illegal on front windows here. I think I'm going to get it to match the back anyways. $85 I was told.

Also I am going to get a bug deflector.

I have had many tickets for window tint on the front. In mo it's 5% on the back and 35% on the front. Don't know the Cali laws but pro tip: the window naturally refracts 9% or so which means 35% tint is really 26% on the light meter. You can roll wth the windows down out in Diego so no worrie about tickets
