There we go stereo typing people again. UM, I am in my early 20's. I just do not like CRAP and am trying to help this poor lost soul out before he makes a joke of his rig. I do not like unpractical cheap stuff. Most if not all people like things that IMPROVE the truck. A Chrome gas tank/door does not improve anything and is a joke. Please do it we need some one to point and laugh at.Why does everyone on this site have to be an A**hole about things, they dis big rims, crome fuel doors, lambo doors, lowered trucks. It's really stupid, no wonder people think tundras are for old people. YOUNG GUYS HAVE TUNDRAS AND WE HAVE DIFFERENT TASTE THEN OLDER GUYS. Most of the guys that dis all that stuff, drive a regular tundra with a stickers on it of some sort and that is what they call a customs truck. yeah boy nothin' like a truck with a racing sticker on it. yeah.
I have a lifted tundra, I'm putting lambo door on my truck and I would like to find a crome gas tank like all the Dodge and Ford guys have. It isn't tacky on there trucks. And I bet I can get more attenion with my truck then half the people on here. I mean it's cool to have an opinion about somthing but when someone puts money into their truckk don't make fun of it thier satisfying their wants not yours.
Now when you talk of "dueceswild's" fuel door you have a point. He bailed the ugly square one but I believe he installed a polished aluminum one which is a totally different look then chrome. And he actually cut the bed welded in a peice of the Ford or whatever lid bed and did body work to smooth it out. ALOT of work for a fuel door and I can appreciate that.I saw somone on here who took a round one bolted it on and then put body filler around it to fill in the gaps it looked pretty good.
Good post...I love the monochromatic look too. I will say that a nice machined billet or brushed stainless fuel door would look good. There's a HUGE difference between steel that's been cheaply chrome plated or has a chrome laminate on it vs a nice thick flo-jet/CNC SS or billet piece.I'm sorry big_o_. It's really not about you, but you opened up a whole can of whoopa$$, and I can't resist ... IMHO, 1 reason chrome is not cool is because it's so easy to do. dsrtrcr01 pointed out all the chrome peel and stick stuff you can install with almost no effort. Where're the bragging rights in that? If you can find a ready made chrome, or slightly better a brushed stainless, titanium, black chrome or anodized aluminum fuel door for a Tundra, I looked for you and couldn't find anything, then it will have some uniqueness -- that is until you tell us where you got it, and how easy it was to install. Creativity, functionality, and effort = I've always loved the "California Look" as we used to call it here in the hinterlands of WI: monochromatic color, and shaved everything. If I saw a Tundra like that with a custom made chrome fuel door as the only accent it would say something to me about effort. And after-market chrome stuff.
So are you asking what it means to "Shave" a fuel door or other parts? I think that is what I am reading.Lastly, I was hoping I wouldn't be the only one following this thread that was in the dark regarding shaved parts. I know the visual images that currently come to mind are probably wrong, so since I'm also here to learn, would someone be kind enough to shed some light on this new (to me, at least) definition of shaved?
You think a fuel door or door handles shaved is nice looking? Man you ain't seen NOTHIN yet. People with show trucks shave EVERYTHING possible. Body lines, blinkers, tailights. Anything.Not only have I learned something, :ts:, I'm truly impressed. That's also a perfect illustration of my point(s)--a result of quality workmanship and not some "everyone else is doing it" bolt-on alteration that will soon be available (if not already) from the nearby Pep Boys, WalMart, or equivalent.
