took the opportunity today to get some of the "smalls" done today

installed the spare tire carrier . I used the newer cable unit instead of the old chain type . POR 15'd , and now installed



also pulled the rear drums off to check the rear brakes . Previous owner had said he had just had everything replaced .. he wasn't lying Smile



so I just lubed up the emergency leaver and painted the rear drum . Neversized all the hardware , and put the drum back on



also started on the front brakes . upgrading to the V6 calipers . NEW , and now with some caliper paint



installed , with new pads , and the new hardware , also added new Stainless flex lines



also picked up these bad boys from my bud Brad > 33X12:50/15's

no show this weekend , so I was able to work on my own junk !

rolled the cab up to the bay doors , and pulled the cowl off . I was planning on using my [URL="http://www.toyotafiberglass.com/images/84-88_smoothie_cowl.jpg?385"]"smoothie cowl"[/URL] anyway , but again , I'm sold on this product and need to tell everyone I see .









I am so glad I did this now , we haven't seen much rain here in a long time , but just imagine that getting wet and staying wet for any length of time . I have always said this is a bad area for rust , and this just kind of solidifies what I have been preaching ...

also got the original batter trey out .. it was starting to rust anyway , so good riddance





and new trey "glued " on the drivers side

so after the sand blast , some "digging" did revile some holes , so I ended up cutting the rust out , and putting in some patches . It really wasn't to bad , but I just couldn't paint over it





repaired .. still have to grind the welds , but gives you an idea

they seem to be in good shape , and most people would just use them as is ... but I'm NOT "most people"







also .. used "plasti coat" bed liner on the floor ...
worked great
