Zeus-A-Fied 2004 Tacoma (In the making)

Hi,

I'm Leonard "Zeus" from Aruba.

I bought a 2004 Tacoma last year. It was in good condition. But paint was in bad condition, dent here & there. Needed some bodywork and painting(which i do myself). I ended up stripping the whole car and restoring it the correct way.

Be pending for pics
