I think if you hit the paint with some ultimate compound, maybe clay, and wax, i think it'll come out pretty sharp

Thanks guys.

Here is some coverage of our Japanese Classic show we had last Saturday. Eric from JDM Legends proclaimed that my truck was his favorite.

Been awhile since I updated. Was spending my time getting it ready for JCCS. Me and a buddy of mine with a Tundra trailered it down to So Cal and then cruised it 45 minutes each way to the show at the Queen Mary. No issues. It's a rat truck and not perfect by any means but it runs well and is a blast to drive.

Grandson towing the grandfather:

People liked the truck at the show. Got first place in Toyota truck/SUV which surprised me.

And Speedhunters took notice.

After the show we cruised over to Shoreline Village in Long Beach and valeted our cars. I'm next to my friend's SR20DET '72 Datsun 620. When we aired out the truck all the valet guys pulled out their phones.

There were some cool Toys at the show including this RHD '73 with a 22re on Starions and a super clean original owner '88 4x next to it.

And this clean Hilux with an 18rg.

As far as my truck... I put in a simple air management system. Viair 275C compressor and 2 gallon tank. Enough to raise the truck once without the compressor kicking in. Modified the seat so it would conceal everything behind it and manual valves in the radio hole.

And to control the ride up front I made brackets to hold '79 Chrysler Cordoba shocks (7.75" compressed). Grade 8 bolts welded into the lower A arm. Works well and I am pleased with it. I don't think its too bad for my first attempt at this.

That's about it at the moment. Driving it regularly and working out some bugs. Here are a few more from the show and cruise.

Thanks guys! Its lots of fun but every now and then when I run into another project I think of selling it. Especially in the winter when I don't get to drive it much.

The film maker Josh Clason, best known for his Depth of Speed videos did a video of my wagon and Hilux back in October. I haven't seen the finished product yet but it should be out soon. I will post a link when it comes out. It was lots of fun doing rolling shots.

Depth of Speed

Also, found it on Stance|Works too.
