    Hi guys, coming over from that other dark website haha.

    My name is Andrew, im 21 and live in Covina CA. Currently trying to learn CAD so i can quit paying people to draw my parts haha.

    I have an 84 Toyota pick up, isnt really much 84 left on it other then the cab and frame literally. 3.4 V6, 62" leafs, custom front LT arms, FOA 3.5" 5 tube rear bypasses, 10"x2.5" front coilovers, 2"x2" bump stops. Hoping to race it locally soon, money isnt allowing that at the moment. Few quick pics
