    figured id start a build thread on my 72 hilux,nothing really to show yet. ive been busy on it the last couple days though. did a complete drum assymbly swap on the front,bigger drums,new shoes,brake cylinders,and wheel bearings.not sure what year toyota they are origanally from though.they were on my 71 parts truck.put new shoes on the rear as well. also replaced the brake and clutch master cylinders.got everything bled and got to drive it for the first time today! it runs and drives very good,brakes work way better than i thought they would to.very fun truck to drive. o ya i also got all the lights working on it as well.:)
