    Messing with my front emblem this morning.
    I had some gloss white vinyl laying around so I figured I would try some things out.
    What do you think looks best? I'm on the fence.
    The black carbon fiber:

    Or my newest rendition this morning:
    White gloss. It's more of a pure white gloss than the Blizzard Pearl. But it appears "close enough" even when you get up close.

    Thoughts?

    FWIW- I dont have any insert at all in the back so its just the Blizzard paint under the Black Toyota emblem. Was just messing with this white insert up front to see if the car would look more "uniform." While the white matches the rear better, it seems the black might be a little more understated?

    My wife and one of my good friends voted for the white as well. Need to stick it on permanently tomorrow.

    Seems like there is a majority winner!

    Slick- the white one is just gloss white vinyl... no carbon fiber on that one.

    Hey Sean,

    How big is the piece of Pearl White that you have? I think the front emblem needs a piece at ~ 4x6. I was going to order a sample of the Pearl one off eBay for ~ 3 bucks. I can paypal you the couple bucks instead via gift for your hassle if the piece is big enough?

    Thanks
