RecklessTacos Build !
 
Wll i haven't really gotten around to making a real build thread. But i have been adding a few small things to my truck and wanted to share with everyone!:D

So first off i did the Maglite Mod!
http://www.tacomaworld.com/gallery/d.../P10308351.JPG

Then I took off the black Cb Antenna(Gave it to Special K) and replaced it with a red 4ft firestik!:D
http://www.tacomaworld.com/gallery/d.../P10308341.JPG
After That, I decided to remove My Billet grill and sand, prime and Paint it Black!

http://www.tacomaworld.com/gallery/d...m/P1030833.JPG
http://www.tacomaworld.com/gallery/d.../P10308311.JPG
Here is the finished product Primed and Painted and ready to go back on the truck!
http://www.tacomaworld.com/gallery/d...0905-12151.jpg
And here it is all complete and re-installed!:cool:

Next was my Gerry can Tray install in the bed of the truck! I purchased the Gerry can about 5 months ago and finally found a tray at the local army surplus store! So now it was time to install the Holding Tray!
http://www.tacomaworld.com/gallery/d...00909-1848.jpg
And now with the can in it!
http://www.tacomaworld.com/gallery/d...00909-1844.jpg
Now with the Tailgate closed!
http://www.tacomaworld.com/gallery/d...00909-1845.jpg
and yes if any of you have noticed the SocalTacomas decal on my Gate has changed colors To Black instead of white!
http://www.tacomaworld.com/gallery/d...00909-1415.jpg

So there you have it! Everything i have done as of recently! Im looking for old pics of when i first bought it so i can show a start to finish!

Hope you enjoyed my small Mods that i have made!:D

Special_K 10-08-2010 05:39 AM

Swwweett!!! Lookin good Matt!!

RecklessTaco 10-16-2010 08:14 PM

Well, the next mods went on today:D While i was at work my girlfriend went and had our new rims(Thanks to Special K. Eddie):D installed on the truck today. Here they are!
http://www.tacomaworld.com/gallery/d...livemJSuPj.jpg

If you look close, the rim is actually missing inserts where the little screws are. But they where chrome inserts and i didnt want chrome, so im painting them Red like the truck:D
http://www.tacomaworld.com/gallery/d...liveElEjvc.jpg

Here They are with the tires rapped around them!
http://www.tacomaworld.com/gallery/d...liveynt2pL.jpg

And, what they look like on the Truck:D.
http://www.tacomaworld.com/gallery/d...liveZyMn3r.jpg

Once again, Thanks a lot to Special K. (Eddie) i love these rims bro!:D

Tomorrow Pics of my Volant CAI, Volant Ram Air, And URD MAF CAlibrator Install!


Well Today i finally installed the Volant CAI, Volant Ram Air, PowerAid throttle body spacer, Amsoil dry Power Charger filter(same one they use with the TRD supercharger) and the URD MAF sensor Calibrator. Thanks to Yumatrd(David)
http://www.tacomaworld.com/gallery/d...liveoFV9b3.jpg
The URD MAF installed on the passenger kick panel!
http://www.tacomaworld.com/gallery/d...livesJ8Wki.jpg

And i figured while i was at it i would paint the Chrome inserts for the rims Radiant Red to match the Truck to see what they would look like!
