    Looked like they targeted plastic tanks. Big hole saw. Tacoma is an easy hit, sits high to fit a tank under, tank easy to access from side. Poor protection.

    Where in Boulder are you working? I need to get these All-Pro axle relocation plates to @lambo and you could save me a trip down (and save me from spending money on IKEA candy)...

    The 4runner is no different. Direct path through the holes in the splash shield. Cars are safer because of ground clearance, but not immune. The Tundra is the easiest target and sees the most repairs. Through the shop the Tundra and Sienna came in the most times followed by the 4runner then Tacoma. Addresses in Aurora were the most common, then tow ins from large office complexes were next.

    The tool of choice seems to be a 1/2" drill bit, not a hole saw, on this side of the hills. My guess would be you could catch more of the product with a fuel can or a direct hose.

    This was down in the springs. Crack heads this side of hill haven’t been that desperate yet. They just help themselves to unlocked cars.

    Does anyone here have any experience with any company in Denver that can do a complete inside frame flush cleaning and rustproofing of the inside and out side of our trucks frames. I’m starting to see a little surface rust probably from mag chloride.
    Something like Eastwood internal frame spray

    I just sprayed mine down at the car wash and used 3 cans of Fluid Film to coat the entire inside of the frame.

    Picked up my wheels from Spec Wheels in Denver yesterday. So far I'm extremely happy with their work. Tires come in Monday or Tuesday and I'll see how well they hold up to mounting. I'm almost gonna feel bad about wheeling them...almost. :D

    How much did that cost? Did they do everything (prep & finish) or did you have to drop them off pre-sanded/ready to be coated?

    $110 a wheel, $10 per center cap. They do all the prep. I wish I had before pics. These were all scratched and corroded. They look like factory new now.

    Exterior was unharmed, Interior after ripping out wiring to the Radios and accessories the only damage was to the center console(crack on drivers side ) and a tear in the rug. Had to re-key the doors and the original ignition cylinder @ $260. Didn't get charged for the impound lot which was nice! Had to get it towed though, thanks to Mario at Villalobos Towing! Will be looking through the parts lots for a center console. If any one knows of someone parting out a 2nd gen.:)

    Rotated the tires on the mini. Put them back on so that "MINI" reads right. The last guy screwed them all up.
    This is why I do my own work. #attentiontodetail

    How much was it for materials for something like that? I've been thinking about building a slide for the fridge I just got.

    Of the top of my head about $150. $70 for 20” slides and the rest was materials(2”x48” angle, (2) 1.5”x48” angle, (2) 1”x48” strap, 24”x24” 11ga sheet, and misc bolts)

    Edit: might be able to get the materials a bit cheaper at a scrap yard, I just went to HD because it was convenient.
