Hey guys, long time, no talk. I bought a toyota a while ago with a blown head and have made some progress.

Bought it like this, pretty rough had a bunch of ugly shit on it that i ripped off. The box was totally destroyed

I did the head on it, then ripped the box off and made a flat deck. Took so much time and its still not done but a really good experience and im super happy with the result

Threw a whole bunch of 24v LED pods on her and shes good to go !

I hydro locked it on sunday but amazingly enough she didnt bend a rod, got her running that night after i got the water out of the cylinders and did an oil and filters change and shes once again alive and well :) I got a welded third member for it, makes such a big difference but would suck if i daily'd it. Should have paid attention...

Plans are :

fix wiring, make tailgate, make tool box, better tow points, some sort of mud flaps -ish...buddy gave me like four gallons of paint and primer for free so i plan to grab some fenders for it and straighten it up a bit and spray it blue but we'll see about that...drink more beer, burn more wire, camp more often, see ya out there
