    SOLD!!! :(

    After being on here for over a year and figuring which way I wanted to take my truck, I'm finally making a build thread of my Black 1995 Toyota Tacoma LX Extended Cab 4x4. Bought it in January 2012 with 234,000 miles on the body. Previous owner put in an engine from 2010 Tacoma with approx. 24,000 miles.

    When I first joined, Blackdawg's build was the inspiration for mine. And with the help of Michael (bellassaiw10) and some other local TW members on some of my mods, here is my build.

    How is the plastidip holding up on the handles? I'm thinking of doing mine but have concerns about durability.

    Good to hear. I am doing a complete dechrome. I will do them when I do the mirrors and badges. I already did the front end. I wonder how the rear bumper will wear.

    Every time I do something I tell myself to take pictures of the progress so I could start a build thread but I get so caught up in doing what I'm doing that I never take the damn pics. :D
