Hey BIGBIRD,

When I grow up I wanna have talent and time to spend on my hobbies like you. You are the T.I.T.S. (Totally Inventive Toyota Supercanuck).

Keep those pics coming. :thumbs: The next Round-Up is coming soon, you only have 8 months left.

Great Job as usual
Marlin
thanks Marlin, im going to the hammers as usual as well. and im working on the round up again  to!!.  more pics
 i have had a couple pm's on what i did with my lug nuts, so ill post some pics.
 i had some chunks of old rims from  Kevin. he was throwing these beautiful things out, cant believe that, lol you can see from the pics what i did.. first off i took the pieces of rim and ran them on the belt sander as close to the lugs as i could get. then i used side cutters to get closer, then my blade. add a little ca glue and  there you go.. and sorry i have no idea what the rims were from.

 thanks!!!
I  made longer rear leaf springs, so my drive angle was way out to lunch, so i made some degree shims for the springs.

had to mod the front of the rear spring mounts as well to better my drive line angle.


 and i added wraps to my springs, and it really didnt effect the articulation, but will save the springs.
