    Hello to all!


    I just bough an 2011 Tacoma Double Cab Short Bed 2wd V6. It came with the standard SR5 Package and the port added TSS package. It is Silver Streak Mica in color. This isn't my first Tacoma I drove a 97 v6 MT 4x4 for a year. It was my sisters she left me to use while she was in Korea.

    This is my first New to the world car and I absolutely love it. When I bought it I told them not to detail it I rather do that myself. They insisted on at least washing it so I agreed to that as long as they didn't put any tire shine on.

    When I got it home I gave it a nice bath using P21s Bodywork conditioning shampoo. Once it was washed and dried I went once over with Klassie AIO to get out an imperfections in the paint. I top coated that with Klassie High Gloss Sealant Glaze. This weekend I plan on giving it another bath and then drying it and top coating the Sealant Glaze with Pinnacle Souveran Paste Wax. I also hit it with my special blend of tire shine that doesn't make the tires look all slimy and then sling off.

    Anyway Here is a picture at the dealer when I was taking delivery:

    I got the compass temp gauge out of an 09 and swapped it over the week I got it. I bought the Trd sport suspension off a member here to swap out. I just installed some 3000k HIDs in the fog lights. I got a class 4 hitch from a member here who had the tow package and installed it on my truck. I might end up doing projectors but I'm not sure about that. Basically I am turning this TSS into a TRD Sport.

    What I have so far:

    Installed Overhead tmp/compass

    Installed HID's in the fogs... They need to run a bit more to get rid of the green

    Waiting to be installed

    I bought the truck to pull my 65 mustang and to help with some other activites I do. The mustang is my toy and it gets most of my build time devoted to it.
