    here is my 2007 tacoma that i bought from my grandparents bone stock.

    its the 2.7L 4 banger base model with auto trans and its a 5 lugger 2wd... which is awesome because of the plans i have for this truck.

    so the first thing i did before the title was even transfered to my name was put a system in it.

    i put in a panasonic double din model number cq-vw100u that i had in my old car

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    then i built a box to put in the back to hold 4 hifonics 12" subs and a 1200 watt hitron amp. i built the box to be around 9.5^ft3 after displacement and it is tuned to around 35 hz. the setup pounds pretty hard for the amp that is rated 1200 watts rms but probably puts out less than 1000 rms at 1 ohm

    and i did glass the inside corners to seal it off and add strength

    after i finished that i spent a lot of time deading the roof because the bass made the roof flex about a few inches and didnt sound the best. i got some peel-n-seel from lowes and great stuff to fill in all the cracks. overall i used 3 rolls of peel-n-seel and 4 cans of great stuff on the roof alone. once i finished there is no rattles at all and the roof hardly flexes at all now

    and the last thing i have done as of now is the headliner. i got some vinly and fabric paint and sprayed the headliner black. the original plan was to cover it in suede but the fabric i had was not plyable enough to stretch around the curves of the headliner. but overall i am happy with how it turned out

    haha, if only i were normal i would agree hah. but as far as audio i plan on upgrading to more power and better subs, who knows what is in the future... possibly 12 12s?? i know i will probably get flamed for this on here but i dont care honestly. i plan on putting 22s on it and a 3-4 drop kit from djm, but just like everything else i need the cash to be able to do that

    i used rustolem paint that i got at autozone. the first coat was just about as dark as it is now. i ended up using 2 coats. in the past i have used vht niteshades that i picked up from oreilys and that takes about 8 coats to get this dark. so if your looking for a lighter tint go with vht

    Dude those are some cool rides man. Not my style for sure (being an old mountain man) but kudos and respect to anybody with those kinds of skills. You're an artist.
