Part of our time loss yesterday was after bolting on the first caliper, the Land Cruiser rims I have been using on the Tacoma rubbed, I knew the 4Runner rims I normally use on the Tacoma rubbed, so we had pick up a set of rims Clay gave me and drive back to his house. As part of this merry-go-round of wheels I was left with the wrong lugs nuts and a leaking heater hose on the Land Cruiser. So another day working from my tailgate, I really don’t know how people survive without tailgates!

Everything you need to upgrade your Tacoma brakes to the bigger Tundra brakes.
Nothing is bolt on…. this is only trimming the dust shield
This should be a 3 hour job for the home mechanic, I picked up the parts at 9:30am, went for a bike ride and had lunch, so really started at about 1pm, Clay and I finished at 8pm, after the first bedding of new pads and rotors, we decided to try one more system bleed and one wheel wouldn’t open, so we called it a night. Thanks to Clay for helping and loaning tools.

Excited to pick up my new Tacoma today….. kidding – love visiting Midstate Toyota in Asheboro, there is always a cool truck to look at! I was just there to pick up brake fluid, after 275,000 miles I am changing the brake calipers with Tundra brakes: bigger brakes=quicker stops!

Part of the trip was to pick up my (and co-workers) photographs from Wilmington after a show at the Cape Fear Community College. They filled the back of the Taco, glad we pack light when camping!

I needed a weekend away, after working 6 days and a bunch of hours, we decided an overnight trip to the beach. The hike along Flytrap Trail to Sugarloaf Dune is pretty and finding Venus Flytraps makes it worth the hike (thanks Clay and Kay for the eagle eyes)
These are small plants, both these are 1:1 macro photographs.
As we reached the Intracoastal Waterway it was low tide and we could board and explore the US Navy BK-7947 – some kind of barge, but you can climb into the holds and has some cool rigging. (Video to come)

Made the turn on my ride and realized I would have to race home (back to the truck) – It was pouring as I started the truck, but stayed dry.
