You have to have at least one master to be able to program using factory methods. So just a new key on it's own doesn't help. Locksmiths have an aftermarket tool that somehow skirts the Toyota security so you can program in a new master without an existing. I'm not sure if he does key resets but Scanman Diagnostics does mobile programming.

I’m taking some classes at Home - The Foundery

It’s a fabricator’s wet dream. I took one of the welding classes last night and I’m planning on going back to get trained on some of the other equipment. Once you’ve taken an introductory & safety class on each piece of equipment, you can use it for whatever project you can envision. So many ideas going through my head as I toured the place after my class yesterday.

That's a lot like the now defunct Tech Shop that was in Arlington. I'm definitely going to check The Foundery out, to bad its all the way in B'more

Tractor Supply and Home Depot sell some aluminum angle. Culpeper Machine is likely cheaper and with a much better selection but it's a hike for you.

I inherited my Dad's old 1997 Land Cruiser. Finally have the free time and available cash to spend, so am now looking for someone who can give the mechanics a good once over, to make sure all is in order, and do some minor exterior work/updates. Location-wise, I live in Springfield, work in Fairfax.

Not looking to do a full restoration, but want to make sure it is: 1. Safe to run. 2. In good enough repair to continue to run safely. 3. Look better cosmetically.

I'd appreciate any and all recommendations! Thank you very much!

Can you bring it out to the Swap Meet on the 29th? There will be a lot of folks there willing to give their opinion on where to start. The FAQ in the 80 series section has several threads on DIY base lining and preventative maintenance if you want to read ahead. How many miles are on the truck?
