    Not exactly my Tacoma but at Thanksgiving dinner my Nephew asked me if I could clean up the headlights on his 2000 Tacoma. LOL


    Used the Griots Garage ROB with a 4in backing plate. All pads are 4in Lake Country CCS. All polishes are Menzerna.
    1st pass with a yellow pad and SIP.
    2nd pass with an orange pad and Micro polish
    3rd pass was a blue pad and PO85RD

    Topped them off with Fuzion.

    Pretty cloudy headlamps.

    [​IMG]

    All taped up and ready to go

    Mandatory 50/50 shot.

    All cleaned up.

    Total time was 45 minutes with my nephew doing 90% of the work. This was the first time he ever used a ROB.

    I assume you are asking about the CBI front hitch mount. I will definitely post some pictures of the install and write it up with any issues I encounter. I am a newbie so I will be following the install that put me on to CBI in the first place (http://www.tacomaterritory.com/forum/showthread.php?t=72923).

    I always wanted a front mount hitch for my 1995 Tacoma but never got inspired enough to do anything about it. After seeing the CBI custom fab hiding it in the bumper, it would be wrong not to install it on my 2011. I haven't received and timing updates, but I ordered from CBI on Nov 4th. Their standard leadtime is 8 weeks but when I spoke to Steve on the phone, he said he should be able to ship in 4-6 weeks. As I noted before, I should have it before Christmas.

    I made 2 more 1/4" CB spacers yesterday for a total of 1/2" of total drop. Did nothing for my vibes. Looks like Im going to be shimming it next.
