    Thanks, I was actually checking out your build page today. I'm thinking about stealing your graphite wheel idea. Your build looks awesome as well! Between you, box rocket, and I think one or two other gold tacomas, I'm getting some good ideas for my build. I like our 1st gen gold color because there aren't as many, at least I don't see that many on TW or around where I live.

    I hate the tags. TG wasn't even offering them when I got mine. Glad yours don't have them.

    Thanks! I got both the spacer and shackles from ToyTec. I got the adjustables so I can play with the rear height and see where I like it best. Driver side spacer is to try and fix the rear lean mainly. For some reason the driver side rear leans .5" in comparison to rear passenger. The front end leans a tad toward the driver side but not as noticeable as the back end. Hopefully this will fix the issue or get me close to level all around.

    Tried out plasti dip for the first time today. I did the driver door and passenger door "Tacoma" emblems. I really like how it came out, so I'll be dipping the other emblems tomorrow. This stuff is really cool, I'm gonna give my wheels a couple coats in plasti dip as well, not sure what color yet.

    Finally finished plasti-dipping my badges. It took a couple tries to do the SR5 and tailgate badges. They are more flush to the body than the front two Toyota tacoma badges. Anyway 3rd time was a charm...

    Tinted windows- 20% front driver and passenger.
    -Limo tint on rear driver and rear passenger, along with the very back windows and sliding window.

    Looks nice and dark in the cab now. Makes me want to take a nap in the back seat.

    Had my calipers refurbished today, plus new front brakes. While they were checking everything out I noticed the steering rack had too much play in it. Turns out bushings are worn out, plus grease is oozing out of lower passenger ball-joint. Already bought the parts (affordable parts!) so gonna do the bushings tomorrow and gonna have my usual mechanic put the ball-joint on.

    I'm glad it's getting taken care of because its gotta get done but this is $ I wanted to put into more Mods! Ohwell...

    TG rock slider finally all welded up. Looks stout, plus don't have to worry about other cars swinging their doors open, now I welcome it!

    Then plasti dipped the front and rear bumper. I knew I would like it so should have just rattle can'ed it as well.

    Last night I painted the fender flares because they were looking kinda grey. Used a matte black for these. I like the way they turned out. ImageUploadedByTapatalk1373844527.084977.jpg

    Finally added ToyTec adjustable shackles. Put them at lowest setting (1")
    It really adds to the stance. Plus no more Bro Lean when towing!

    Also, painted my stockers w/ Rustoleum "Carbon Mist". I wanted a dark color so its perfect and the clear coats made it shine.

    Haha I wish. It's called Carbon Mist, but it was close enough to graphite. I wanted the dark wheels, just didn't want black. I thought about doing graphite but I didn't want to do the exact same, especially since I've already stole a couple of your ideas ;)

    don't worry about the idea thing. If i wanted to keep a secret, I wouldn't post it on a forum for thousands to see! I'm just trying to help people out!

    Anyways, it looks awesome i like how its nice and shiny!
