    This is my first thread post and a very unfortunate one at that, Back story i bought my X on October of 2016
    and fell in love with it as we all do, but all good things must come to an end and mine ended on April 14, 2018 when i hydroplaned on a turn sending me into the ditch,causing me to roll over. Normally that would be the end of a vehicle but i would be able to sleep at night knowing that i sent an X to the Boneyard so as the title says i'm rebuilding it. and i thought i'd show my progress.

    So to start off i needed a donor access cab and Tacoma's reliability bit me in the rear on this. Since April i've been looking for a cab to no luck at all. Only tacomas i found were either first gen, regular cab, or wrecked worse than mine, until 2 weeks ago i found one. White access cab very minor dings, automatic ,but i could easily convert to manual

    Once i saw it was good i went to town gutting it, removed all interior, disconnected all the harnesses and removed the 6 bolts holding the cab on the frame
