Default Crushers

@ oldskoolmini, Thank you, I knew once someone told me, I would have to say "DOH".

I think I came up with some better ones, but this is a family oriented site

@ Tex, I agree on looking meaner.

@ talon, That makes me feel better, Thank you,, damn optical illusions, or something else.

@ Bulldog, Thank you my friend. how about a Dust Buster

@ sloppy, I know you are right, you and Rob, I'm just not sure yet. Thank you for commenting, its good to hear thoughts.

@ Willezcr8, Thank you, and Thank you for your concern on the the body damage.

@ d.k.v. Thank you, I am a little ahead of myself, but I have to wait and see which transmission I eventually use.

@ Pablo, glad ya like the seat, I want to do a little more to it.

@ To all of you gentlemen, I thank you all very much for your time and comments but, I'm still no closer to deciding, and part of the problem for me is the WB was only close.

And I think I may have fixed that problem for the moment. See what you think of 1.9 Rock Crushers on the LUV

It can be done, and you don't always have to buld a crewcab. This has a 3 -spd in an Axial SCX10 frame.







And still have room for an interior..

Anyway, back to the LUV.

Carved out the vents and hood lines




Playing with flat black, and I finally found a use for some of the left over marker or blinker lightes from a yota, now I just have to find the lenses











There are a few things I can't do untill I get the transmission, such as, the interior is on hold.. the chia-seat awaits.

TAA DAA,, I know its not a LUV, but I was able to get a few pics today of that Toyota..Mostly to show the tire size in relation to a small truck in 1:1.

Out of curiosity, anyone have an idea what this thing would or should be worth ???? I don't even know the year.

No thoughts on the $$$, but that little bugger looks like a lot of fun. Still thinking about the tire size? Anything would work...except stock!
