EquinsuOcha's "Project: Retro"

"Project: Retro" will be everything Marty McFly would love if he drove a 2007 Tacoma.

Here it is bone stock, about a week after I bought it:


I took off the mudflaps, removed pinstripe, debadged, added TRD Off Road wheels:


Then added a TRD Sport Grille and Devil Horns emblem and Toyota skidplate:


Then came the shorty antenna, Toytec front spacers and rear leaf TSB:
(Before)


(After)


And then the stereo hooked up to the factory headunit via a MTX ReQ:

MA Audio tweets


MA Audio 6.5" drivers with TacoTunes adapters:


MA Audio 6.5" Midbass drivers in the rear suicide doors with TacoTunes adapters:


I built this sub box myself, copying a design I found on the interweb, and had it covered by Car Toys:


Elemental Designs 7Kv.2 sub. It hits HARD for its size:


Hifonics Zeus 400 watt, 4 Ch mids and highs amp:


Elemental Designs 200 watt, 2 Ch sub amp:


Just recently I found a shift knob out of a Ford Mustang that I made fit:


I slipped on a nylon spacer to make the shift boot meet the bottom of the shift knob:


And stuck a regular old washer onto the bottom of the shift knob with some JB Weld to help cover the unsightly plastic holes in the chrome trim ring:


And I got some Putco vent visors from Neontrail:


Painted and partially re-badged my tailgate, with Sockmonkey decal:


Another Sockmonkey decal:


No recently told me about a Honda S2000 antenna mod. Detailed install found here:


to be continued...

Kind of. I'm not so much whiting things out as I am trying to get rid of all the chrome.

All you do is remove the 4 bolts holding them down to the floor(either 14 or 17mm I think) and then there is most likely a wire harness that needs to be unplugged from underneath too. Very easy to take them out- 5min each, tops.

Well...it's Top Secret. I was planning to reveal it at the meet in May, but I'm still waiting on my Spidertrax spacers to get here. They won't be mailed until May 8th. So I guess it'll have to be an Interweb reveal.
