    Mini Mod Day in San Diego!

    Unholycumulus, W8N4MUD

    Lembowski, Padilla1880

    & Edrin55 (in the garage).

    Lembowski & his new 2009 Tacoma
    Matt has already taken off his grill & bumper. Albert had the privilege of spraying behind the grill to blacken everything out.

    Matt hard at work.

    That lower grill was more difficult than expected.

    Horns relocated behind the lower grill. Albert used pre-existing screws that were holding the center bracket and the secondary grill in front of the larger one.
    [​IMG]
    Matt is all done. Tightening up a few screws and snaps.

    Unholycumulus hooked up Lembowski with the anytime fog mod.

    As she sits right now! :cool:

    Edrin55's new 2010 Tacoma.
    Here's the before. A little dirty and with a bright silver radiator.

    Ron hard at work on his new Grillcraft grill.

    All painted and the horns relocated as well.

    NEW GRILL! It's ready for installation. Drums please...

    Grill installed.

    Everything all said and done. License plate & skid plate back on.

    Padilla1880
    Daniel came over to get his truck worked on.

    Jeff and Daniel were trying to AAL. It was suppose to be a simple installation, but a simple error prevented these two from finishing.

    We did find it entertaining for a while. While Jeff was here, he did the anytime fog light mod on Daniel's truck too!


    Good turn out. Got a lot done. It was fun. We had a few good laughs. Thank you guys.

    That's right! :D Thanks again Matt. You rock bro. I didn't think there would be that many others that wanted to be invited. For sure there should be a SDMD (San Diego Mod Day) #1 soon for all the locals. I know for a fact though I don't have the room. I was tight with 5.

    I love the grillcraft. I'm still in awww when I see it. It's like... who's truck is that? :p Yes, oh yeah it's mine. I recognize the plates. :rolleyes:

    Until next time. Drive safely.

    i just stumbled on this! yah we couldn’t get that AAL done.. but now we know whats wrong - i bet we could crank it out in a few hours TOPS! next time i'm gonna bring leather for my arm rests.

    We have the SCMD5 coming, but it'd be awesome to get a separate goin for the San Diego people too - we have SO many of us! I’d be game to host at my garage.. but the few of you that have been there know theres NO ROOM whatsoever :(

    but yah.. like an annual "Mini Mod Day - SD edition"! :D
