Question about Cars & Trucks
Spray painted my grille a while ago and it's starting to chip. Although I sprayed the grille while it was still attached to the car, this time I would like to do it the right way. Any suggestions?
Automotive paints require a good clean and well prepared surface like light waterpaper sanding to remove any oily or fatty resedu and the correct undercoat before applying a new coatings otherwise it will not last chipping or peeling will occur.

try looking at the vin plate inside the engine compartment. it should be the first set of three alphanumeric characters. the plate is exactly in the center right near the windshield.

There probably a whole batch of them from the factory that weren't prepped right for the final coat... I think it's a factory error. I would complain to the dealer and the company. I don't think they use any cheaper paint, and essentially use the same techniques in painting the vehicles.

Toyota paint codes are can usually be found either under the hood or on the passenger/drivers side door jamb. Most Toyota paint codes are 3 digits long.
If you can't find your color code on the car your local Toyota dealership (parts department) will be able to tell you your code from your registration or chasis number...
Good luck..i hope this helps, please rate me a fixya.
