Also temp mounted my turn signals. Would like to do the blinker mod for tacomas and move them into the corner lights.



Annnnd I may or may not have brainstormed a little......

Pulled the carb apart to do a little cleaning. Throttle response is amazing now!! Still need to do some idle speed adjusting.



Also undercoated the entire inside in hopes of making it a little quieter.



And my neighbor came over to check it out and already offered up the use of his welder and was talking about flat beds and exos

I'm excited to see where this goes, I love the mini-trucks. Looks like a really straight body, how all those Toyota owners do it I'll never know.

Straight body? Not quite lol but it's better than most. Bed is pretty beat up and has some rust, tail gate is fucked but works, and passenger fender has some damage. Going to swing by my dad's sometime and grab his body hammers and dolly's and see what I can do.

Not gonna happen in the near future. The 4Runner project is dead. The FJ80 front axle I have may or may not find its way under the Tacoma.
