View Full Version : The Silver Taco!

02-28-2012, 08:13 AM
So upon moving to Edmonton and deciding that the RC can't be daily driven anymore, I decided to get myself a truck.

I found myself a 2008 TRD Sport Tacoma.


Took less than a month to break myself of the idea that I wouldn't do anything to it :P


Only cost me 4 cans of plasti dip, some VHT nightshades, and some clearcoat!

Of course having access to the blast cabinet and paint booth at work that I can park the truck between was freaking handy. Just pulled a couple all-nighters on the weekend evenings when the shop was closed for the night.

I still have 1 more session to go since I need to wetsand/polish my newly tinted taillights. I also plan to Debadge all but the tacoma emblems, hit em with VHT, and do a "satoshi" grille sometime this summer. Then I'll call it a day :)

Can't wait to park the RC beside my Taco :)
