Yes, we have taken a perfectly resaleable 1984 Toyota SR5 and bolted a chrome mannequin on the roof in a little beach scene. Other previously pristine expanses of body panels have become the canvas for a variety of ocean scenes (both above and below water) as well as the resting place of many thrift shop objects.

The car is still an evolving piece; shown here are some of the results of the first few Sundays' work.
