I picked up an '81 rusty Toyota Trekker a year or so ago. It is a mess! Floors rotted on all four corners of the cab. The sliding windows and tailgate look as though they leeked from the factory and the globbs of silicone applied by previous owners tells a similar tail.

I never posted a build thread for my 62, so I thought I'd better start one for the rusty Trekker while all the pics are on the same device.

Here's a link with a little Trekker history.

Here's is what I'm starting with.

Made some progress yesterday!

Saw this on Mud a few years back and figured I'd give it a shot.
Took everything I could off to lighten things up and attached the engine hoist to the seatbelt mounting bolts.

That's quite the build you got your hands on there. Digging the progress, you guys move fast compared to what I'm used to seeing.
You know, Blair, I never realized it, but you're right. We have some motivated mofos up in here!
