    Whats up buddy, It's chillin in my kitchen. I'm not sure if you just want to work a shipping deal or meet half way, I'm down to meet you somewhere on the weekend if you want to save on shipping.

    I've never checked for the color code, is it black? If so I can check through my truck to see if I can find the code.

    Haha, no you wont loose the bead. Beadlocks are only needed when you are running 10psi and doing burnouts to get over boulders. If you have 2WD like me, you really don't need them. I'm not a fan of fake beadlocks either, I only bought mine because I got a killer deal on them used. $1000 for all 6 with new 285's on them, retail price on my rims alone was $250 each at the time. I figure I would have paid $2500 or more new, so $1000 couldn't be passed up. One of those right time, right place deals.

    Fake beadlocks like mine are actually a pain. What I didn't know when I got them is that water will pool up in the lip every time it rains/I wash it/I hit a puddle, and it leaves stains that I get sick of cleaning off. Also, some alignment shops get all stupid about them because they have to use an adapter to mount their lasers on these wheels. Real beadlocks are heavy, hard to balance and illegal to run on streets.

    If you get an 8" wide wheel with 4" backspacing, it's 0 offset.

    Nice, I love the old Nissans.
    For wheels, look for something 8" wide with 4" backspacing, this is the ideal measurement. 4.5"-3.75" backspacing can work, but 4" is best. For the coilovers, you'll have to wait. The 8" shocks won't fit on stock lower arms, too long. For sand paper, if you are taking the paint off of the grille, I'd probably use something around 300-400 grit to start with(go very lightly), then follow up with 800 grit.

    Anytime bro. I've got a stash of older parts laying around in storage, I don't mind getting rid of some of them. You don't need a stock skid plate do you? Or maybe another set of mirror covers to experiment with paint on? I have my old set, I painted them flat black but it started chipping, I don't need them.

    One million dollars!

    Just kidding, you can have it. I'll check for it when I go to storage, probably won't be until mid December. I'll shoot it to you for cost of shipping or maybe meet you somewhere around LA, you aren't all that far from me. I was planning to keep the shell and build something custom, but I'll never get around to it.

    You know what... if you really want a billet grille... I think I still have one tucked away in storage. It's off an 03, it's a little bit worn but it's in fair shape over all. It's blacked out, I think it's powder coated, the guy I got it from had one of the cleanest Tundra's I've ever seen.
    Here it is, that pic is a few years old.

    Don't use a power sander. Those strips are plastic with a weird metallic coating. Most professional paint shops won't touch them. Just use some sand paper and do it by hand, go lightly and take your time. One thing I've learned about painting is, an extra hour or two of prep work is better than days of regret.

    You could try using that plastidip stuff. It peels off and seems easy to use, I've never tried it but there are entire threads about it on Tundra Solutions. Another tip, I got good results by using this adhesion promoter from Duplicolor. It comes in a can, you can get it at autozone. Secret is, use it very lightly, don't let it dry more than 5 minutes between coats. It's like an invisible primer.
