shiney. Added flex agent to the mix and made sure each coat adhered to the previous one.

Pimp man!

I would drop the headliner, really not that difficult on a 97. Just drop it enough so that you can get a welding blanket in there. I have one if you want to borrow it. Call cell if you want to do it this weekend.

Strut grill almost complete The 1964 Toyota emblem will have the letters painted the same color as the truck as soon as I get around to it. The insert is all powercoated, the surround is painted to match.

The Satoshi grill mod was my inspiration. Here is another page on a similar mod.

Scion Alpine head unit Toyota part number 08600-52838, HBTY501A
Nothing extra needed, plugged into the factory harness and works. (Don't forget to unplug the factory amp behind the passenger front speaker that is next to the glovebox) I will need to change out a few amber LEDs though.
Thank you LexusBen and thank you Toyota

Dude, you are going to have the sweetest 80 ever. Love the grille, and the new stereo looks awesome.

if you didn't already do the interface, the cd changer/aux input for ipod is available for cheap on ebay
hey I may call you on the grill... The only thing I think is ugly on the T is the grill. Where did you score the material for the mesh, or is that oem from the old days?

pm or call me if you want...

The mesh I used is actually an aggregate screen used in the mining industry.
