Do they have wolves in the dog parks yet? That transition usually occurs around Winston Salem... although sometimes as far North as Narrows, VA although almost never in Charleston, WV. But the local waitress's should know for sure.

Have you put much thought into the rear view mirror deodorizer yet?
Dog parks are for trucks. Truck parks are for wolves.

The mystery fluid hasn't been spotted lately. Either it fixed itself or whatever reservoir was leaking has completely run out. Now that's how you mechanic.
It's a Jeep, right?
Outa sight5 outa mind... leaks fix themselves if you're lax enough about the maintenance.
I know you've built a bunch of these but I'm still excited to see one come to life.
The weathering on the spare is neat, no one remembers the tire wear... looks the part!
I'm excited to build this. Not only because it's a replica, but also because I'm going the extra mile with this one. Having the reference vehicle in the driveway certainly helps get the often overlooked details. It was fun making the spare. I chucked it into the drill press and let the rubber fly! Smelled great I might add.

Geezus i Love your Rene work man it boggles me how's you make it so clean and neat and perfect I try so hard and can't come close to the level of professionalism you achieve in your builds outstanding bud
Needs more wolf dogs.
Gosh, that's really nicely done.
I've always loved the 1st Gen 4Runners... nice to see you doing a detailed build.
Can we get some shots of your 1:1 for reference? And for eye candy...
Thank's for the additional "fender - picks" and the explanation ... :biggthumpup:
awsome progress since my last "visit"...
I already see another "guilds-finest-project" ..... :luv:
Wow! That really is turning out awesome. :luv:
