    i was thinking of making the ends black. I've seen them like that on a few 4Runners.

    I'm not really an artist. i mean, i could do some stuff, but this was just basic imaging i guess. I've seen some of my friends actually draw using illustrator and stuff.

    gonna pick up a few rental tools today. mainly ball joint pullers then start work this afternoon!

    had time to throw in the steering center link, nitro drop 2 shocks up front and the 3.5" lowering blocks and lowered the front a bit more this afternoon. that center link was a bitch!

    did an at-home string alignment yesterday and it came out a lot better! I had crazy toe in on both sides after the suspension and steering replacement parts. set up the string and jack stands. adjusted the 'turnbuckle' to measure correctly and BAM!! drives a lot better. good enough to take it to an alignment place in the next coming days.

    been a little busy with the truck. thought I'd give a little update

    'fixed' my crack dash with a dash mat. fits pretty good. had to use more Velcro than it came with, but overall, looks pretty good.

    restored the old, faded license plates. i think the off-white was a good choice for the base color. used my wife's die-cutting machine to make the vinyl graphics and tag numbers.

    new 7" touchscreen stereo and 4" kickers. now i just need to download more music videos and throw some tv shows on it.

    picked up new foam for my bench. i already got the new cover. might have time this weekend to replace it. gotta shape the foam a little bit more and round off the edges.

    and new, old-school GReddy shift knob. now i have something to match my tailgate LOL! just waiting for my buddy to make me a 4 speed sticker for it and get my polished, nardi woodgrain to match.

    all that's left for the interior is the carpet and make my own door cards.
