    Hey fellers! I'm getting right to work on my new investment. Time for a build thread.

    Here's how she sits today. So far I've done the limo tints and reconditioned the wheels.

    I'm gonna work from the inside out. Today I stripped out the interior to start dynamatting. Got all new led's for dash cluster, AC, shifter and all interior.

    Anybody want this carpet? It's in remarkable condition! The previous owner must have replaced it at some point because it definitely doesn't look 18 years and 200k miles old! $60 and you pay ship or can pick up in Fort Lauderdale area. I'm selling because I ordered the one from Rock Auto with the mass backing.

    I took some soapy water and a bristle brush before hosing it down. Looks really good.

    Whoopsie... Broke a seat bolt. No problem. Drilled her out and got a new bolt, a couple washers and a lock washer to replace.

    Here's another pic of the carpet all dried out. Somebody will be really happy to have this for sure.

    I'm Rob from South Florida specifically the Fort Lauderdale area, so I'm primarily a city dwelling highway cruiser. I plan to build my Tacoma out for what I do - mountain bike racing! For those of you who don't know, Florida (despite the flat land) has one of the best mountain bike racing scenes in the country. We have a very well organized and very popular cross country and endurance series put together by www.goneriding.com. Check it out!

    I believe the buzzer (if you have one) and light on the dash would stay on permanently

    Finally finished that project. Unbelievably time consuming but so worth it.
