    First off...my wife already hates this forum. I keep finding new projects for my truck and it annoys her

    At any rate. My next project is to paint the grill with matte black Plasti Dip. Has anyone painted the Toyo logo with TSS? I'm considering not painting it simply for aesthetic reasons but if I change my mind, I want to make sure I'm not screwing something up

    If we were talking about my first wife, I would 500% agree lol. But this one is a keeper

    If you don’t want the TSS-P to work right then you can. The sensor is in the grille. You’d be painting over it.

    Got the grill painted today. Looks much better. I enjoy a little chrome but this truck looks better without it.

    I also painted some cheap chrome handle covers I ordered that happened to come in today. 20190531_155045.jpeg 20190531_155058.jpeg 20190531_155104.jpeg

    I used plastidip on my trd off road chrome grill and it lasted a couple months and the pressure washer ate it right off. I sprayed it on thick too. About 3 cans to be exact. I then ordered the pro grill and love the look way better. I dumped the chrome end caps on the rear bumper too for black ones recently

    I ended up not using Plati Dip and just went straight for the matte black enamel paint. I eventually will be replacing the grill with the Pro though. It has a better look to it

    Did the paint effect the use of the touch entry locking and unlocking the truck via the door handle?

    Not at all. The covers didn't wrap around the back so it unlocks just fine and theres a cutout for your finger to lock it. Both work as advertised
