Hey!
New to the forum, I met a couple of members in recent 4x4 dealings. I've always like the Toyota mini trucks and i finally got one a while back. the truck had definitely seen better days.
It was rolled at one point, you could see were the pillars are kinked and then straightened as well as the welds further up where it had been chopped and the roof was replaced. the cab corners and floors were all rusted out.
you could see on the passenger side of the tunnel were the yoke came through the floor.

i couldnt edit the jeep out of this picture sorry Rolling Eyes
















i dont know what this is of anymore...

solid cab mount


















I used half a gallon of por15 which includes the frame the underneath of the cab, inner rockers and the floor of the cab, then box liner on all visible spots on the cab.
new wind shield and seal, seats out of an gen 2 integra i believe.
After cleaning the tank with with acetone and a chain I had some serious rust problems in the gas lines and ended up replacing them all with rubber hose which sorted it out.

this is how it sits right now.

i recently moved and my garage is out of order and ALOT smaller so it will be awhile before to much happens with it. i am planning on fabing up a fladeck w/ rool bar and maybe a roof rack worked into it? not sure about that yet.
and i will hi-steer, RUF 63" and probably do something for a winch bumper maybe a locker too

BTW... box liner it the new new car smell
