Same for you. I'll make a trip to the Creek at some point, but it's not a high priority...I'm more of a multi-pitch/mixed rock-ice/big wall/peak bagger. Most of my pics happen to be on sport climbs just because it's a hell of a lot easier to rig for pictures on bolts.

Stay safe out there.

Stuck a shorty antenna on there today from shortyantennasource.com.

Have also had a locking gas cap and the VSV valve mod on it for a while now (month or so).

Extra D-Rings have been ordered and are on the way. Probably won't get to those until next month (need to buy a dremel). WeatherTechs should be doable next month too.

Just keep marchin' along...little bit at a time.

07/15/2009: Engine Cover Painted

Well all, got the engine cover painted tonight and shoved back in the truck (after dark).

Here be the story:

So I had the cover out and all masked up, ready to be painted.

I checked the directions on the primer and spray paint and noticed the clear instructions:

"Use in an open air and well ventilated area, like an open garage."

"Ok" I asked my brain, "Can we do it in a closed air, poorly ventilated area like the apartment bathroom?"

"I don't see why not." my brain replied. So I got about setting up a painting area in the ol' commode:




Primed it....



Got a few coats on, and voila! 45 minutes and 5 to 10,000,000 dead brain cells later I emerged from the WC, light headed and victorious, clutching my newly painted engine cover like a small child who had just received a Nintendo 64 for Christmas.



I promptly took it out into the dark evening and set it on the hood to take bad pictures with a lot of enthusiasm. It's hard to tell, but the color match is almost perfect:



And a few more looks of it back in the bay:





WOW I love the way you did this. Its looks great. Can I ask what color blue you used, and where you got it?

Uh...it's chrome. I thought that was obvious from the pics. I will be stopping by a dealership soon though to price a color-matched grille. I will also be pricing having the chrome ground off and the grille surround repainted with matching paint.

I'll probably go with whichever's less expensive...but I want the chrome surround color matched. Once that's ready, the front end gets redone with the BHLM and grillecraft inserts. I'm saving a weekend somewhere for the "tacoma facelift" project.

No prob...it WILL be color matched before too long...but that'll probably have to wait until after the Wet Okole group buy. Can only dump so much money at once.

Not cheap? I haven't gotten a quote yet, but initial investigation leads me to expect between 200 and 400.

Generally speaking, a Toyota dealer should be able to order just about any part in production for their current vehicle models.

Toyota OEM stainless steel tube steps, only available in the SouthEast Toyota Dealers states. I can get you info (part # etc) if needed. They may be difficult to acquire if not in our region.

The eventual plan is to replace them with sliders, at which point they'll be up for sale, but don't count on that - probably going to be a year or more.

If I supercharge it down the line, I'll probably pick up a TRD emblem for the bottom right (facing it) corner. Other than that, no, I prefer the clean front. Should look really slick once the BHLM gets done.
