    Did a few little odds and ends too today. Bolted the rear portion to the frame. Got started on the top plastic rail things, just want to epoxy them together. Mounted license plate.

    All I have remaining that’s major is paint the bedsides, and put the finishing touches on the bumper and paint that too. Then the bobbing is complete. I decided I will bite the bullet and buy proper automotive paint and paint the entire bedsides, off the truck. May as well do this properly. I’ll create a makeshift paint booth in my garage. Only shitty thing is I don’t have a respirator. Wonder how much I can paint while I hold my breath

    I’m slowly learning. The real test of skills I don’t have is going to be painting this thing lol

    Stuff that my wife thinks I don't need.
    It's not a lot of fun. I put one in my first Tacoma. Finally gave up and let the body shop do it.

    It amazingly ripped it off in one piece. Going to try epoxying or gluing it back on somehow.

    Hmmmmm

    Sigmond Freud would say that subconsciously Option 3 allows for a swing out. It's ok if you want to disagree though. The subconscious is a mystery.

    That was a lot of fun and I appreciate being involved in the decision making process, I thank you.

    Can you still drive on public roads with the tail gate down? Asking for a friend.

    I don’t see why not if I have a legitimate reason. The license plate is blocked with a tailgate down anyways. Of course I’m sure I could still get a ticket but I can’t think of the last time I drove with my tailgate down anyways.
