    Default Shaving things on the 1st gen

    I searched and found 1 0r 2 threads about shaving stuff, but I wanted to post what Ive done anyway. First things to go where the door mouldings. They look awful on any truck. Upon removing, I realized toyota had been so kind as to privide 6 holes on each side of the truck for them. So lots of shaving there. Next was the rear door handles on my extended cab since there are handles inside. The last thing to go was the antenna, and i didnt even have to move it some place else. I found a great tip on a silverado forum, about running the antenna down the fender. After i finished, the radio reception is absolutely the same as before. Great mod if you have time to paint four fender. The last thing im doing, is I already removed and filled the key hole in the gas cap, and will be modding a push-to-open style mechanism into it like on some lexus and infinity cars. pics to come soon

    Oh I would so love to get rid of my BSM. Actually saw a first gen Tundra running around the other day with no side molding and it looked really nice. These are clean bodied trucks with essentially no body lines, if I had body and paint experience this would certainly be the first thing on my mod list. Post those pics!

    i got the pics, but I am about as tech savvy as the desk the computer sits on. How do i downsize the photos? my droid takes pics at like 3200x3000 or something and the forum says they have to be 1600x1200

    I might as well describe the antenna mod. first i took the base off with a tool made for it, I borrowed someones at the shop I work at. Next, i removed the fender liner and moved the antenna to the inside running down the fender towards the front of the truck. a pre existing hole lined up perfectly for me to zip tie the end of the antenna off to the inner fender. Cut out a piece of metal and taced it in and welded it up. Filled with bondo, sanded down and primed. It is a rough cut and will get smoothed out when i paint the truck sometime soon. It was a work truck so there are dents everywhere. After it cooled, I shot the inner fender where the welds were with self etch primer, then rubberized under coat and replaced the fender liner. good as new

    You should be able to set the resolution before taking pics! You can't change afterwards. In camera, go to the wrench icon and go down and select resolution. You can change the settings there!

    Im pretty sure you can upload them using the picture icon above where you type your post and they will resize automatically. The image button is just to the left of the film strip icon.

    Alternatively, open the pictures in Paint and use the resize option. Do it as a percentage and set it to 25% of original in both directions and save it as a JPEG

    Too much resizing, maybe go 50% if you listened to me and went 25% of original
