    "Peel n seal" Ive used this stuff a dozen times on several vehicles. It works great and at a fraction of the cost of other sound deadening materials. It IS thinner but works well...you can always double up if you want. It sticks well through summer heat too. They sell it in wide rolls like the video and in thinner rolls.

    Drill bit just puts the hole in the partition of the fuse box so you can push the wire through.

    Quick splice splices the new wire to the green wire.

    I have a 2006 PreRunner TRD Sport, and want the black Honeycomb Grille I've seen around. It's on TRD now for the Matrix...that's the look I want. Black SS construction...awesome! Gary (Toyotapartsbarn.com) says it was done on this site some time ago, but he doesn't recall any particulars.

    Would greatly appreciate anyone's help :)

    That's a beautiful honeycomb, but the chrome bar and emblem are not desired...all honeycomb looks better, and that's what I think is lurking somewhere. Thanks for your info. The new Matrix one is just honeycomb, but it won't stretch to fit our openings :confused: I wonder if that part is removable and the grill is continuous underneath?

    Thought change: Shows how quickly one can modify their tastes, or maybe it's a comment on my old age! I've purchased the 5-pc polished billet and a neat, black metal TRD badge for the main grille. Working concurrently on replacement of cat-back (Aero SS 2525 w/tip), Rhino coating on front belly pan and entire trailer hitch ass'y, which both had a tad of rust. The pseudo-powdercoater sandblasted both units to a point they couldn't be painted with any sort of smooth surface, so moved to Rhino for redemption. Then there's the door threshold adhesive strips to install, and the cabin filter to be cut from the HD filter material, a la excellent TW directions.

    Can anyone hook me to the "rattling sounds" on a cold start in low temps...disappear after warmup, and almost sound like blower noise, but that isn't "on." I've seen the thread, but now can't find it.

    Just did this mod easy and quick! My trouble spot was getting the bottom plastic bit off but other than that pretty good.

    *Used part # 84652-02710 and did it on a '14 access.

    Old one is now for sale :D

    Too much to list, but enough to get me in trouble. Repeatedly.
    Front comes with one from the factory. Check the engine side of the driver side wheel well- there are two breather ends on rubber hoses: one is the front diff, the other is the trans.
