    Aloha,

    Just joined from O‘ahu Hawai‘i (looks like i am posting to a ghost thread last one from 2007).
    Anyway, 2nd owner of ’06 BSP essentially stock 90Kmi.

    Bought truck as a compromise of utility and sporty.

    Just attacked the dreaded roof rot that happens to 2nd gen Tacos here. Not sure if it is common on continental US. But the rust grows under the clear coat

    Sanded to bare metal, rust treatment and delivered to painter. Painter pulled glass and fixed rust in gasket lip. Shiny roof again. Just needs a final machine polish.

    K&N factory air box filter
    Mobil-1 in engine
    Amsoil in Trans and Diff
    Michelin Pilot Sport
    Basic Kenwood blue tooth Audio (Need to get steering controller added)

    Currently researching clutch in another thread.

    Need to kill axle slack in the future.


    Previous cars of note:
    1998 M3 sedan (suspension + tire upgrades), 1991 Civic SI (suspension upgrades), 1980 Toyota Corolla Tercel 2dr sedan (suspension, side draft carbs, header, lighted flywheel, custom interior)

    Welcome to the Underground!

    Roof rust happened to my BSP as well. I had to fix a hit & run dent on my passenger front quarter panel and had the bodyshop sand and re-spray the roof while it was there.
