there's no pickup i'd choose over a '70s hilux, and i usually think every car looks better without bumpers, but i'm not so sure here.

those are plastic spray-painted hubcaps, right? is the brown & green a custom paint job or just patchwork body panels from a donor truck?

mixed feelings on this post, frankly.

I felt like the color scheme emerged from other donor trucks, and I just really like how obvious that this car has been pieced together from a lot of different trucks.

I wouldn't be one bit embarrassed to drive this, but I would feel a lot more confident with bumpers on it. Let me know what you think when you see it on the street, I bet you'll walk away smiling overall.

Those side mirrors are ridiculous. I don't know whether to appreciate them as being comically oversized or go find some tiny UJM bullet mirrors.
