Ray, How is the engine detail in that kit? 

 

 

From what I have seen so far I would have to say only fair. I am hoping it builds up well. I have heard this kit is a pretty poor fitting kit. The body is in one piece but it is made to have removable doors and front and rear section. You just need to cut them apart. My plan is to leave the front attached to the door and just have the engine cover section removable. I put the exhaust together and there is a lot of sanding to do to them. Most of the parts do look pretty clean.

All I got today is more back pain - 10 cubic yards of fresh mulch down and probably 2-4 more yards to go.

If the lifted one shown is anything like the lifted standard cab HiLux and 4Runner kits, the stock suspension is included.

That is some good info, thanks for sharing, off to PM ray to find out,  so stock suspension, but no stock tires/wheels thought correct

That's how the HiLux and 4Runner are. I'm actually planning to build my second 4Runner with the stock suspension, and simply put a set of stock size tires from my Satco stash on it.

Now you are just teasing that you have some Satco tires in your stash :lol: ,  I need to search to find some stock wheels /tires

Oh, and as far as what I got today; No model related stuff, but I did get the Hollywood Accessories No. 544 Safty Lite I won on Ebay earlier in the week. B)  For those not familiar with them, it's an old school 3rd brake light from the '40s/'50s. About 14" wide and 3" tall, and says "S T O P" when lit up. I plan on mounting it to the front bed panel of my '55 Chevy pickup.
