went and looked at a "sweet" tundra with a little bit of road rash and no work done to it...

I have never seen a more beat up rig in my life. 150KM and the rear end and the tcase both replaced. Motor "ticking" like a mofo. They replaced the exhaust manifold as they thought it was a leak. (but NO work was done to it!)

It had stone chips to the metal on the roof!

My tundra dream has been put on hold. I think it's going to be off to the states. If anyone sees an 05-06 double cab, we are in the market.

I am not sure, until I have the old bumper off, I don't know what to do with the sides as it kinda integrates into the fender.

All I know is Jen wants it to look AGGRESSIVE!

I tried for the duals to go with the diamond axles...but the wife said NO. Can you believe that shit!

It's getting the sound deadening treatment along with a complete stereo system.

More pics tomorrow. My hands hurt from rolling the "brown bread"

So I had to do some cutting to get the subwoofer in. I also am in the middle of making a fiberglass box.

Precut. not a great picture


After cutting/welding and adding some deadener. Forgot to get an in between shot.


First layer of glass mat


Tomorrow it gets another 4 layers of mat on the inside and attached to the top!

hehehe I like it!

here's some more pictures of todays progress:

I HATE fiberglass and this was daunting me a little but I think it is turning out OK. I wish I could have made room for a 12" but I didn't want to cut into the floor. I ran into a small snag with it today after I got the top cut.... clearance to the sub. I knew I was going to recess the sub into the top but I didn't recall how close the plastic backing under the seat was. To solve this I will install a spacer block to lift the panel and hold it tight. I tried it with scraps and I think it will work.





and the amps poking through the old map/storage pockets. There should be enough air flow to keep them cool

Just moving this out to the general members section. I figured fawk it. I have dogs and guns...

Got the headlights polished tonight and ordered up an alpine type R slim sub for the back. I also filled the sub enclosure with water to get it's volume. Exactly .5 cubic foot. PERFECT!

Can't wait for the Pioneer to show up.
