Tom has always wanted a first gen Toyota 4X4 Truck since he was a kid . Not being able to afford one back then , and soon with "life" involved , he never did get one , untill now .
he always liked the truck his neighbour had , and finally he was able to purchace it .
Tom did lots of reasurch , and decided to bring his build to us ..

this build is somewhat of a "stock" build , daily driver type .. that he wants to last for a loooong time .

so with a "budget" established .. we are going to make Toms dream come true .

here is where we are starting

Wow, looks like a hell of a starting point. What are the plans for it?

damn.. well that sucks...

it really depends on where you are on the coast but i have seen quite a few beautiful first gens that would have come home with me if i already didnt have my cruiser on the trailer..

it sucks that guys down there dont even give a second thought to go beat up those trucks on the trails..

before we paint the cab , time for "mock up "
Tom brought us seats from an acura .. nice seats , but they wont bolt in . So we made them "boltable"

you can see the original seat tracks


and the Acura seat tracks



cut off the original tracks off the seats and tossed them away



new mount plates



and ORIGINAL first gen tracks mounted




now fit awesome in the original holes Smile
