    I think the clear now needs to harden over night. Will see in the morning. Toyota said its black graphite for the interior color. But am using black Metallic.

    The finish is VERY different though. Hopefully once the clear hardens, maybe a little wet sand and polish, it'll be a closer match.

    Hoping buffing will fix it. But it's all I had to work with. Will see what happens tomorrow. And the Alpine Halo 9 will cover alot of it But I think it will turn out ok.

    U should of used an airbrush. You lay the color on ultra thin. It has to be dull, then the clear makes it pop.lol

    Installed Morimoto Stroke2.0 LED Low and High Beams today.
    I disabled my DLR, so no issues there.
    Low beams have a more defined cutoff (I actually like a softer cutoff, but oh well)
    Low Beams are noticeably brighter for sure, a nice clear white, no blue tint.
    Low Beams fit entirely inside the stock housing behind the cap. No drilling.
    High Beams are MUCH brighter.
    High Beams fit fine, but wtf Toyota, why arent the high beams covered also?
    Only concern is the high beams being exposed to the elements.

    Pricier than many LEDs out there, but, the beam pattern is correct, and clean.
    I know, I know, where are the pics, sorry, had limited time to get these installed today.

    Not too difficult from a technical stance but it is easier if you pop the housing off. The space is tight but the results are well worth it.

    Installed a pair of Aries steps. Not expensive, nice powdercoat and beefier than Nerf or plastic clad. I had to push a couple brackets on one side to line up holes but went on pretty smooth. My son loved using the electric impact (greatest tool ever). I also threw on a TRD grill. I was hoping it was just clean so I could skip the letters but it came with indentions. If you do one of these knock off kits do yourself a favor and scrape out the foam adhesive. They stick out a bit and squish when pushed. I am replacing it with epoxy when the weather clears up.

    On my last days off I got a SDHQ hidden winch mount and Warn VR-8 winch installed. Took about 4 hours by myself.

    Red! Make it easer on spot check to ensure they are still intact.

    Ive seen mention of the gap the knock off grille has, and that has scared me off a bit. But it's hardly noticeable on yours, and with that spot on mine being black wrapped already, I think it would be pretty invisible. Were you impressed with the quality of it?

    No, it's not hard. There's just a lot of stuff going on there. It's handy to have a second set of hands, and have a blanket or something laid down on the floor because that bumper does not want to stand up on its own; it's going to fall over no matter how you set it down. There's a pretty good video on YouTube from Caliraised LED about how to get it off.
