    Project Sharpie got its nickname after Atlantic Wraps did our one of kind full gray topographic wrap. We all kept telling Adam that we were going to draw a little truck with a sharpie on one of the hills in the topo to see if he would be able to find it! Needless to say we are very familiar with Toyotas and have done a ton of Tacomas, Tundras and 4Runners!
