Looks good. Decided to just take mine off. Will dip the Toyota emblems once nicer weather gets here


Also just received these...



Seem to work well so far.

Looks good, I usually delete the emblems but I wanted to see how the blacked out emblems looked against the red.

I was so up in the air about this too, figured If I wanted to go Black I can dip them off the Rav and stick them back on.
Looking forward to seeing your other planned mods. I have very similar things in mind. Windows tinted already.

Hi guys
I see black part on your cars at rear gate between rear lights
it is your own mod's or it is stock?

I mean this:


Yes, all stock. Can we see a picture of yours? Just curious to know what other options there would be.

Thanks!

in Russia i see second spoiler installed at this place, but can't find it in the internet.
like this:


That rear moulding looks like it is particular to models over there. I have never seen that "spoiler" type middle pc like that on any of the RAVs here in Canada. Also don't believe I have seen it on any pics of US models. Looks cool!

Here is my Iron Horse, wait me under window :)


Also wondering if those "Chrome" strips by the headlights on your Black front bumper pc come stock or you added those.
They look good as well.

That's a beautiful RAV4, Yurik! Do your outside mirrors automatically fold in? I would be afraid to park that close to other cars. Around here, people will carelessly open their doors and dent the car next to them.

That's why they invented the side moldings, those things have saved me more than one occasion from scratches and dents. I also close the mirrors on tight spots.

The black at the rear, between the lights are SE models and above only. My friend has the SE and I have the XLE so I started comparing differences.

What I may do, is either vinyl wrap that section on my XLE. Or plastidip. Remove it if I don't like it :)

Did some photoshop to get a preview (pics attached). Already blacked out the emblems with plastidip.

Looks good, did you also do the front emblem? I have a 16' LE in that color and I've been thinking about doing this.

I did not do the front. the 2017 models (all trims) have the radar or something that emits from the emblem! I wanted to plastidip them but I can't. So I plan on plastidipping the black trim around the emblem and the chrome pieces that's suppose to accent the headlights.

Never realized the trim piece between taillights was body colored on the XLE.

I see you have headlight washers and rain sensing wipers. Nice! Do you have auto leveling headlights?
