    so the tacoma is going to be here in england in 19 days and i can't stop thinking about what im going to do next! found a shop here that will powdercoat for 30 british pounds a rim, so im thinking i'll start blacking out all the chrome, then do my sitoshi, then my bumpers and shell. thinking about installing an auxilary fuel tank... any ideas on how to? i figure i can get a tank off of a truck with an intank pump and have it pump from the auxilary (placed where the spare would) to the factory tank and put a filler in the cubby hole on the side of the bed. any thoughts? reason for this is gas comes out to around $8.50 a gallon off base but much much much cheaper on base so i plan on filling up lots on base then traveling on that.
