    My dad bought the truck for me in June, since my Camry was rearended and totaled.

    He is what it looked like when i picked it up:large_1864161213674270_ea560ee72d5701a58e9001ceb195410d2c887a18.jpg

    First mod was some cheezy Fog Lights from Walmart -$18 actually pretty useful! 100_0732_be4ae96c081e0d37e41f145a6e8e0e83d42aad3b.jpg

    Shortly after, Gibson Cat-back exhaust and Switched the WeaponR Intake Filter off the Camry onto my truck:

    100_0718_db750cab49060dd4cd755a21bec2d0be7c61202e.jpg

    I was happy with this setup for quite a while, until I decided to Lower the truck, so, of course, Rims were needed:

    Then came the drop (rear first):

    I got bored one night and decided I needed a change in the current audio setup, which was two 8" Kicker Comps behind the bench seat. This was constructed:
    100_0832_7c13a307d78523a07e8f1a42f42e3b307ddb7b72.jpg

    I had a 60/40 split bench laying around, so that was the next project. removing the bench and inserting the split bench.

    The seats had some spacing issues, so I had to mock up custom brackets, which were actually the stock ones from the bench seat. But I go them to work, and they sit really nice!

    During the time of the seat installation, I gutted my interior and doors and put a product called Frost King on all the surfaces. Vette and stang restorers swear by the stuff so I tried it out. It really keeps the cab at a nice temp and makes the stereo system sound louder. It also helps keep the road noises quieter! Its cheap too. I dont have any pics of the install unfortunately.

    Smaller mods that I've done:
    Added a turndown to the intake and crankcase breathers.

    Looks real nice, you've put a lot of work onto it. Were the split seats from a first gen tacoma? I thought all the first gen seats were interchangeable. Looks like a ton of work to make them fit.

    Are you saying it adds some sort of sound insulation to the truck just by covering the windows with tint? WTF? How does that work, it seems like the effects would be insignificant. :confused:

    Nice truck though! I like the rims the most, and that tricked out front-seat sub LOL, does that ever get in the way?

    Thanks!! Im not too sure what the seats were out of. My dad brought them home with hopes of putting them in our 66 Chevy C10, but they were too small. And yes, 1st Gen are interchangeable, but you cant beat free!!! There wasnt too much work installing them, just a little drilling, welding and grinding and they fit great! I think i spent more time removing the stock bench, since 2 bolts were stripped from the previous owner. But all in all, im really liking the split bench over the reg bench!:D

    No, not the windows. The floor, the back wall, and the doors. Its a product called FrostKing Duct installation. Its basically tinfoil with a nonporous foam, about 1/8t" thick. It has an adhesive back and sticks nicely. So it insulates that cab nicely and keeps the outside noises reasonably!

    Looks nice, We should have an "Acrophobia" room here. that's "afraid of heights" for those running out of the room to google. That way we can swing into the "drop shop" and see what the "down low" is on things.

    Need a bit of baking soda and them some grease on those connections or you'll be pushing your lowered ride home.

    Do they give you a free dryer with the purchase of that many washers?

    Keep up the good work. So much to learn and get out of this site.
