Wow man, that thing is looking really good. I just installed a Clineometer also, but I have a dash mat, so it covers up any sore thumbs :gap:



Your Hilux Surf unit looks really cool. I like how it is (appears) lower and wider than the US version.

Good work dude. Very clean, and well thought out. Having a wife that is industrious and is interested in the sport is a definite plus!

Keep it up! :thumbs:

Gettin ready for primer and paint. I figured it would be a pain to match OE color, so i decided on some rally stripes that would add some style. Besides it's going to get scratched up anyways!

Primered! On the downhill stretch now! If you look close at the factory recessed line, it didn't line up right. Everywhere else matched up great. Not a big deal tho, it's something you have to look for to notice.
