This is the first part of my own modification of the Toyota Hilux High-Lift. 1987 Autographics decals were added, and this is how you can fit the interior of the 1981 Toyota 4x4 model. You have to make a small cut in it in order to let the motor 'in'. Afterwards, it all would be covered with self-adhesive carpet. You'll see the beautiful results, and the installation of a vintage driver, and Kamtec clear windshield in PART 2.
*** This was my very own way to get rid of the sad look of the Surfer's truck proposed by Tamiya.

W/ decals and rollbar Rear end Installing a proper scale tube bumper Excellent! Use a dremel to do this A good start! Naked chassis

Erich, looks great, I just found those same decals in orange and red, so I guess I know what I am going to do with them now.

@backtomyroots.: Thanks for the positive comment, mate. Yeah, this one was such a beautiful machine. Sadly, I had to let it go so I could pay my 2nd Masters a while ago. But someday I know I'll lay my hands on another one so I could make these nice mods again
