    Thanks for noticing. I made those a long time ago and used an old original step as a template then built my step out of 3/16” plate on to 3/16” wall rectangle tubing.

    Paint Beautification

    That wasn't my intention but will probably be the case. At first I intended to paint it myself but I wanted the paint nicer than what I could do so here I am. Once some of the newness of the fresh paint wears off I could do some light wheeling with it. My 80 is built for wheeling so that will help.

    I thought I would share a little progress on this paint project. I originally started out to do this myself and quickly realized if I wanted it to look nice that probably wasn't the best plan so I left it to a friend that has a body shop. He has been working on it when has time between real...

    "Mysterious" is a great description from what I've seen. Whether it appears more green or brown, the Olive 653 always looks great to my eye, so I may just pull the trigger on 653. On your re paint do you know if the paint mix was a true match to the Toyota color Olive 653? I know there are...
