    Here's some before and after pics of the dash refurbishment. Upgrades include a crack free dash pad with inclinometer, new climate control faceplate and control knobs, Sony touchscreen head unit with Apple carplay / backup camera / Bluetooth, and a double cub holder from @caribou_yota (instagram). Things you cant see are the new kicker speakers, fully insulated climate ducting, and working AC! So nice to have some creature comforts in the rig.

    Spent the day giving the ‘84 a propped buffing. Crazy how much life the original paint still has. Here’s a day 1 vs present day comparison.

    Thinking of getting this turned into a rear window decal. "Sponsored by In-N-Out"

    Picked up another restoration project. Added a 1984 Tercel 4wd Wagon to the fleet.

    That is pretty cool! Looks like it's already really clean and doesn't need much restoration.

    Been awhile since i posted on this thread, but over the summer I put some new powder coated SR5 wheels on. Also in the middle of a new OEM lift kit.

    The time has come to rebuild the front end of this bad boy. The before and after pics should be pretty drastic.

    Front end is back in, new suspension installed, fresh wax, and the top is off. Life is good!

    Took the new leaf springs for a little workout. Having BLM land in your neighborhood is a huge plus.
