    I know this isn't most peoples thing, but man this truck was so much fun. This is my old 98 Tacmoa I had. I sold it years ago have only seen it rolling around in town 2 times. Always wish I could get it back, it was a big head turner.

    I didn't do any of the painting on it. But you just get a bucket of that chem strip, clean everything really good down to just plastic, sand it, paint away.

    As for the wheels, I didn't like them stopped, but spinning they were just amazing looking and I got 5 of them. Had to have the matching spare. :)

    edit: I'll see if I can get in touch with the guy who did it and see what his actual process is.

    I had flipped a CRX at high speeds (album link for pics of before and afters of the crash).
    http://s885.photobucket.com/albums/ac60/aw9d/

    I had broken ribs, sternum, broke multiple bones in my right ankle, tore a ligament, etc, etc, etc,... Couldn't drive it, needed and Auto to drive to work, it was a 5speed. Also for how far I was driving it I was going through a set of 20's every 3 months on the truck. didn't have a set of stocks for it. I needed more work with the suspension and interior, but being all busted I just couldn't work on it. So it had to go.

    thats a killer truck (the wheels do look a bit goofy though)!! details on rear suspension? was it laying frame? That raised bed is really clean too. Sorry you sold it. It sucks seeing something like that go huh.

    hehe, I always get the 'bad choice' on the rims. But when they are in motion, they were just stunning.

    Haven't heard by from my guy on his steps on how he did the dash yet.

    You have door poppers, press the button on a key fob and it opens the door.
