Chipping away at the old block!
DID ANYONE ELSE GET AN INBOX MESSAGE FOR S*X WORK USING WHATSAPP? CAN THE MODERATORS PLEASE CHECK IN ON THIS?
Long check off list, but getting checked!! Hope to be cruisin by the end of winter!
We never get back what we put into our trucks, but tht first drive down the block is worth at least half!
My point was the money pit our projects become. Some of us have 100s of labor hours despite the credit debt we rack up just to fuel our passion. Lol. And we're not talking about modified anything, just restoring can get out of hand quick!
Forsure. I got over 10k in parts in my truck and probably another 1k in parts not used anymore. If I wanted to sell it and not sit on it I would need to list it well under 5k. I've seen a celica with a fully built 22r hybrid sit on the marketplace forever. When you go heavy modified it dosnt fit everyone's taste. Hurts the value. Better off reverting back to stock as much as you can and sell parts separately.
I know a guy who stores his truck for about $200 a month.. that's $2400 a yr just to keep it! Lmao. I've known the guy for about 5 yrs.. so just in the time we've known each other hes' spent a tad over 10k!! To store it!!

Nice start up a build thread and throw up some pics.
Livin the American dream.. tired hungry and poor
OR I GUESS, LET ME REPHRASE, i have 15 5mge AFM housings, anyone want their afm modified? PM ME
WOULD ANYONE POSSIBLY BE INTERESTED IN MODIFIED 5M/7M AFMs FOR OUR 22RE?
The is300 might actually be a good donor car for a 2nd gen short bed. The track width and wheel base are really close.
Not sure if you guys are interested but i have a little Youtube series on my truck! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MuotHeDqvVQ&t=443s
Funny how I clicked the link, and I was already half way through the video!! Haha good shit
Before to long I might throw my 2jzge from my IS300 in the truck and the 22r hybrid in the car. Lmao
Lol.. if your around 200 torque ok the hybrid swap, youight be able to pull it off.. but damn, talk about retro fitting! Haha it would be cool cause you know damn well nobody has done.
I think it would be fine. If I can adapt the cd009 6 speed it has then I'd be set. Lol
90s silverado kyb gasajusts > belltech nitro drop 2. had to find out the hard way buying em both lol
I leaning towards the street performance shocks (belltech). You think kyb are still better valving?
tbh im not to sure. i was going to purchase the street performance shocks before i found these.
Need to finish painting the taco without a paint booth. Message me if you have any tips on best way to do this
2 beach umbrellas for shade and temp control. Wet the floor in order for dust/debris to not kick up. Mask all areas not intended for paint. If possible, try to control crosswinds from altering spray patterns so you need to get creative on that one(painting next to a building/wall helps a lot). Taking the time to prep is key! Dnt forget the door jams lol. Also a 12pack of your choosing..lmao
i recommend an 18 pack lmao.
There is something very familiar about your truck.....
