We finally got a few minutes of dry weather today to get the truck out of the shop. This gave me a chance to snap some photos of the finished painted cab with bumper, as well as the near complete interior. Heated set buttons installed as well as marine grade 12v usb outlet. I also rebuilt and fixed up the shift console with new bushings and lubrication for smooth movement. I still have to wire the seats and USB as well as install a stereo head unit and speakers. 

The filon wall siding has been ordered and will be arriving within a few days which means the walls will soon be glossy and going back on the vehicle!

From the way it looks so far, when your done you should be able to swap straight across for an Earthroamer.😀

Hey guys! I'm excited to announce that we are ready to apply the Filon siding to the walls, and then the walls to the truck! This thing is going to be shiny! 

Walls are prepped and filon is rolled out, I purchased 40'. Each wall is about 16 feet in total length. I have enough filon for both walls to be one solid piece of filon for the entire side, and enough leftover to do the rear wall as well as accessory doors and main entrance door.

Tracing walls onto rolled out filon material for cutting.

Trace Complete (double and triple check tracings are correct as well as orientation on filon since it has a good and a bad side)!

Lots of careful cutting and then let it get some sun and soften up!

It's really nice looking stuff and should really bring the Toyota a classy look. We will be gluing the filon to the walls early this week.

This thread is a real blast; thanks for documenting the project! I look forward to hearing about the process you used for gluing the filon (and your adhesive of choice) and can't wait to see the walls up/mounted on the frame.
