We started with a 1st gen Toyota Tacoma that was rolled/totaled and left for dead. We bought the project for $150 from a friend and got to work.
We removed all the fenders and broken windows then removed the bed. When we did this we found terrible frame rust. Next step was to give it a test drive and see how much work she needed.
We charged the battery, aired up the tires, changed the oil and trans fluid then took it for a drive. Every selection on the automatic transmission was drive except for park. We we drove it around the yard it only seemed to be in second gear. We played around with the shift linkage and got nowhere fast. It was time for a new transmission.
While we were waiting and looking for deals on a five speed trans we got to work on the front fenders and bumper. For the bumper we used 1 1/2”D 1/8”W Steel tubing and bent it with our Rouge Fab HD600.
For the fenders we used 1”D x 1/8”W steel tubing with 1/8” think plate steel and we are so happy with how it turned out! These fenders are absurdly strong! … Read the full build here https://www.grindhardplumbingco.com/builds-1/2018/8/14/the-totaled-tacoma
