    Stupid pin stripe has been removed. Standard TRD wheels are being mounted right now in preparation for being rattle canned black. Now to paint the brushed aluminium on the running boards and emblems.

    Here she is!

    So the first pic is a before.

    The next three... Well I couldn't wait until the sun came up, so I used a crappy camera and HDR to trying and bring some life out of the pics.

    She really does look better than this, she does need a good washing and waxing though.

    Work done;

    TRD wheels mounted $50

    Wheels and badges Plasti Dipped $30

    Bare aluminum on running boards painted with bed liner $10

    Pin Stripe removed $Elbow Grease

    Holiday week not working -$XXX 1 days pay

    The way she looks, accelerates, brakes, corners, climbs, and gets looks from hot chicks... 110% improvement

    I have fallen in love all over again!

    Thanks everybody! I couldn't be happier :D

    I'll have some daylight photos by the end of the day.

    Now, I have to get rid of the chrome on the toolbox handles and the exhaust tip... Suggestions are welcome!
