    Now I'm curious if Mfab is going to complete the Tacoma with engine compartment and interior?

    It would be awesome if he made an interior. If not, I plan on making one out of styrene.

    As soon as the first set is done and approved it will be up to the person making the wheels.

    I can't believe how they machine these small parts so accurate. It's amazing what talented people can do.

    I ordered some 90mm but may seem small so also looking for 95mm. Currently have 102mm and just look too big. Hard part is finding AT tires.

    Got my new Scale tires. Had to drop from 37's to 32's. I do like the look of the 37 but really want it to be scale and not doing all the work to put 37 on my truck. Lol

    Also when I took a pic I really noticed a bad body line shadow so had the break out the bondo and fix both sides. Getting closer.

    Looking good !

    Are you going to have to get the Pelicans custom printed ? Or does someone make them already?

    Having custom ones made. He's currently finishing up a complete Tacoma IFS suspension so it may be awhile. But I'm not even close so theres no hurry.
