    They look a little out of place, I think a couple scratches or a dent would help them blend in :D

    Just need bedsides...:cool:

    I hear ya... Scratches will come :D

    Hells yeah.

    Today I painted the entire underside of the wheel well so it's not spotty black/gold. It's solid black now. I also bolted the fenders down the best I can. But will still need your help Mark to finish the lower portion near the cab since there is no place to bolt anymore :eek:

    Oh and I painted the front grill since it's really chipping... No pics though. I was too lazy.

    I need to paint the underside of my wheel wells..... I got made fun of, in Moab, for such ugly wheel wells. :laugh:

    Dude, all you need for the bottom of the fenders are some, self-tapping screws! Worked perfectly for mine.

    That would work, however on the first side I did I cut too much of the fender since my slider was in the way... After realizing that I made sure on the driver side not to cut too much and was able to get a self tapper in the corner... :rolleyes:

    :amen:

    Yeah it does. Always will. The tacoma is too curvy for no fenders.

    Well, needed to move my front axle forward another inch. The added approach angle is always a good thing. Good thing for SFA, it's pretty easy to move shit around! :D

    Better question; why not?

    Everyone has a nice wheeling rig these days. If the truck looks like it can do something, then everyone expects it to perform. If the truck looks like it can't do anything, but performs... That is what I want :D

    Yes... Never. I will be grinding the paint down and putting bondo on so it'll be smoother again before I paint it (hopefully) :cool:

    Not bondo! :eek: What is the planned new paint color? I must say, I've painted 2 vehicles now and I will never do it again until I have the proper tools.

    PS I also vote no on bondo.......... that crap will chunk away when you smack into rocks instead of leaving a nice dent.
