First Step: Clean-Up

To be kind to myself I would say that I am a little particular about cleaning my vehicles. I very specifically asked the dealership not to clean up anything inside or out. They had to remove the plastic to make sure the vehicle had no damage but after that it was up to me.

The vehicle was purchased on a Wednesday late in the evening. The next morning I used Adams Quick Detailing Spray to get the truck looking half way decent. The first day that I had time to spend cleaning the truck up right was the following Sunday. After 6 hours here are the results of my efforts.

Very nice. Love the color! My last black paint was on a Harley. Took enough time to keep her looking better than new. Not that ambitious on a daily driver. Does look sweet though.

I have been a bit slow in posting mods done to the truck so I am going to try to get caught up a bit.

The first mod done to the truck was adding a double USB plug.









A bed extender was added.



I made my own no holes front plate bracket. Here is the thread I started with all the details.
http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/2nd...e-bracket.html


Bought a tent and air mattress.









Added an Ultraguage.







Made my own center console divider.







Installed a OEM Bedliner.





I added some "D" rings to the bed but have not taken any pics yet.

And I am working on adapting the engine bay fuse panel from a Land Rover Discovery II to mount into the engine bay of the Tacoma. I need to start a new thread about the process but here is a teaser pic.



And a few "fun" pics.

Future mods:

A bit far into the future I will look at possibly some suspension modifications but right now I will not mess with the warranty until the bumper to bumper warranty has run out. I have another plow truck but that truck will not last too long so at one point I will install a plow.

I have all the parts to install some bed lights and some hood lights. I also have some additional "D" rings that will be installed. I think the lighting inside the Tacoma could be improved upon and I have all the bits and pieces to complete that task, though I am not sure if it will happen before the cold weather REALLY sets in.

I will need to purchase some black Weathertech FloorLiner DigitalFit mats soon before the winter snows come a calling. A grille modification will be in the works at one point. I would like to figure out a way to add power to opening the rear window as well. I think the truck should have come with an outside temp gauge so some research into what will work and look good is in order. I will install puddle lights on all four doors, and maybe even install the logo lights if I can find some that I really like. The Redline hood supports are in the works. And if I don't stop exploring this forum I am sure the list will get longer.
