    I would think that they would be more pissed that you took their parking spot. You could of at least parked next to an island and worked from the grass. :stirthepot: ask me how I know....:D JK bud :thumbsup:

    Enough to make it a lot of fun!
    It is actually a look of "oh shit I am actually drilling a giant ass hole in my fender right now". The complex has come to accept us as the guys that work on their trucks all the time.

    We are also lucky that the parking spots that he is in are always open. I have probably only seen a hand full of times that somebody else has parked there. I am guessing you have been yelled at a couple times. :D

    My vintage fender was not pristine. Paint is not in good shape on the top, was hoping to cover it up with the snorkel.

    :thumbsup:

    Thanks! See below. $131 shipped, comes from China. Mine took less than a week. Also read up here:

    https://www.tacomaworld.com/threads/hilux-167-snorkel-for-3-4l-tacoma.374598/

    You talking about me painting my bumper in the grass? That spot was only one parking spot away!

    :thumbsup:



    And lastly, swingout is reattached thanks to @Wishbone Runner. Pretty satisfied with how it turned out, shouldn't be going anywhere for a long time now. Pics tomorrow.

    If this damn things breaks, it'll be because I welded most of it....

    All grade 8 hardware, 1.25" diameter bolt, 1/4" plate for the dual sheer bracketry, pretty damn stout.

    Still not double sheer....

    If that bracket is three sided, I'll give you sheer and 2/3 :D.

    Looks good man :thumbsup:

    Fairly certain that will hold. Could go over kill and add some angle gussets.

    I can live with 1 and 2/3 sheer....


    .... still 2/3 more sheer than your spindle.

    Yep, this time I can blame myself if it breaks.

    Thought about adding one yesterday but didn't bother. Might do so later and I might not. Don't think it's necessary, but it couldn't hurt.

    That taillight is not going anywhere! I epoxied it back together 3 years ago and it's still holding strong. I think we even reinforced it a little yesterday by welding an inch away from it....

    I'm back at school, so it's not quite summer anymore, but still getting my wheeling in. Super awesome trip this weekend of Tomichi - Hancock - Tin Cup - Taylor - Pearl - Reno Divide - Italian Creek.

    We'll count on James for a proper trip report, but here's a sneak peak:

    It was built by @capturecolorado

    He said he won't be building more like it, and while he's expressed some interest in building different bumpers in the past, I don't think he's wanting to right now.
