I doubt Toyota had those intercoolers hand-painted, just way too time consuming and expensive. I'll take a closer look tomorrow, but I'll bet they were silk screened on.

That's what I was thinking; if it's not a decal, than Toyota must have had some process for quickly and uniformly applying the stripes and lettering... Maybe silk screening was how they did it.

That's unfortunate that the sticker didn't work out. The chrome will not look original, but it should look really good.

It's too bad that none of the so-called experts on this site have any knowledge or interest in this issue. I guess that we're all supposed to forget about our car's originality, and switch to FMIC's with homemade PVC ducting.

There should be some high-temperature decals that can withstand the heat. I know 3M makes some high performance and high temperature adhesives.

There should be some high temp decal materials available, no?
