My Rolling Chassis

I'm finally back to the roller stage. I just wanted to show off a little of what I've accomplished. Just about everything is powdercoated.











Let me know what you think. Even if its "not your cup of tea."

Dude how do you get all the money at 18? Not my style, but it's looking killer!

I don't have all that much invested in it. But it takes dedication. When my friends go to the movies, or whatever, I don't go, I save my money. I made a fair amount of money selling the mini choppers I built. And I build parts for people, and market that the best I can.

Looks great man..

Haven't you done nearly all the work yourself?

Amazing how fast you're moving along.

Dude! Knock it off, you depressing me! I'm 42 and your making what I do look like crap!

If that's going to be your "daily driver" I can't wait to see what you build next.

Keep up the good work, looks awsome! (And it is my style too)

So far the only thing I have outsourced is the powdercoating. Everything else has literally been done in my garage. I think I'll outsource getting the seats covered too, but that should be it.

It is a 4-banger. Its a Toyota 20R with a smog legal header, and an RV cam. And its rebuilt now with the stock bore because it was just fine. Should be peppy enough for the small truck it is.

And this is the body going on it.


The bottom of the cab is Por 15'd and the engine bay is painted. It will be going back ont he frame next Saturday. Then the first goal is to get it running, then body mods and bodywork begins.

I'm with Arrowhead. You're putting us old geezers to shame. Obviously you ARE very dedicated and your attention to detail is really paying off. It's been a great education for all of us watching you build this thing.

I think it is looking great. Keep up the good work, and of course your pace. Should be done in no time.
