Or what I like to call "de-blinging".
I bought my 07' in January of 08' (year-end model clearance). And from day 1, I wanted to de-bling it, but whenever I had time to tinker with it, I always had something bigger to do to it. So here it is, 2012, and I FINALLY got to it. Well, 5 years of having those badges did a number on the paint. The "Toyota" and "Tundra" badges all had brownish stains behind them on the paint and the "5.7 V8" badges were holding a ton of water that actually discolored the paint. Now, my truck is garage kept and only driven some weekends, and I couldn't remember the last time it was rained on or washed! Those badges had to have been holding that water for, at least, well over a month! So if you just bought your Tundra, and your thinking of de-badging it, don't wait 5 years like I did, just to find more work lurking behind them. Go grab your girl's hair-dryer, a can of WD-40, and get to it!
