Hey everyone, my name is Tyler Brooks, i'm from Vancouver island B.C. Canada. I'm pet. member of Relaxed Atmosphere///. I've been building this 91 Mazda B2200 since 2005. I'm almost done, should be ready for FFF show for its first show.

I'll start the build thread from the start of the build.

next thing we did was chop the top. It is a 2 inch chop using all the stock glass (front, sides, and rear) the chop is so suttle, but it makes a noticable change.
