My friend called me and said that he had tried to return his Tacoma at the end of the lease and that the dealership was going to charge him so much for damage he decided to buy it out and sell it privately. He was, however, convinced that he would have to paint it before selling because of the condition. We agreed on a two stage polish as he was selling the truck so it didn't need to be perfect. Keep in mind that all this truck was used for was to haul his dirt bike out to wherever he was riding when viewing the pics.
