    Really interested to know how they fit. I have none in the doors and the glass stuff is very cracked.

    Pretty sure the PO of my truck bought the seals from Thailand too, there aren't many suppliers for this type of stuff...anyways, everything seems to fit great on the doors and F/R windows. he didn't do the door windows though, the originals are in fair condition but I'll likely swap them after I paint my truck.

    I ordered the set a few years back and i only got around to installing the rear window gasket (when i finally located a window) it stayed outside for about a year and a half in direct sunlight. The corners started cracking a bit but its still holding together. Il see how well the rest hold up.

    Its been a while and havn't worked much on this truck, But I did some general maintenance on the motor and cleaned her up a bit! I also lowered her some more! I also made it to ToyotaFest this year where she got lots of love and made a bunch of new minitruck friends! :meemee:

    Your truck looked really nice bro. It was kind of a bummer no other 1st and 2nd gens made it. There was only 1 of each
