    I don't know if it's a sheet metal thickness issue or support bracket issue but I was quite surprised at how much the hood flexes when the air drier at the car wash hits it. I'd never seen that much movement before.

    It's going to be a sad, sad day if and when anything ever happens to my best gen... I may go without a vehicle at that point other than my motorcycle.

    Up until I bought the Tacoma I'd been a lifetime VW owner. Every one of them weathered hail storms that damaged cars around it. Subarus seems especially soft and prone to damage. After noticing the sheetmetal on the Tacoma seemed flimsy I started keeping a couple moving blankets in the back to throw over the hood and roof if it looked like hail was heading my way. I used to giggle at people freaking out about hail because I knew my VW would most likely be fine, now I find myself running around like chicken little when the sky starts falling.

    Yeah, I feel bad for my housemate. He has push notification for ANY chance of hail and plans his life around jumping in his Subaru at any moment to speed over to the car wash to hide in a bay.

    That's better than the asshats who like to stop under an overpass on the highway. I have vigilante fantasies of being behind one some day and pushing him out into the hail.

    I have no official info to point to or anything, but my understanding is that in general all sheet metal on vehicles is thinner than it used to be. I know for sure my 2nd gen roof is thinner than previous pickups I've been around, and it's not just support (though that's part of it too).

    My guess is it's one of these concepts. No fixed shower head. In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if his direction was 'like this, but better quality/different finish materials'.

    If I can ask @Martyinco what's the ballpark at least cost on that one? It looks pretty similar in size to what my roommate is needing done and I'm trying to convince him not to go Home Depot insert special. Do the hex tiles add anything, or do they just go down in sheets so it's no worse than square tile?

    Hi folks,

    Been a hectic couple of weeks....I would like to say that after my call to Toyota the dealership has been VERY helpful in resolving my issue with the svc issue. My entire goal was to simply get them to do emphasize that folks bring their vehicles in for SERVICE and expect things to be accomplished. Cutting corners is unacceptable and after several calls (corporate, customer relations, and the svc manager) I believe that they are now aware of the issue and are going to implement something to make sure things won't happen in the future.

    Time will tell on that; I am willing to give them (after some productive conversations) a second chance and will meet with them face to face soon.

    Now onto figuring out some pain in the ass wiring and then going onto more wheeling related items such as a lift, tires, wheels.

    Cheers!

    :)

    It’s a new style... nah it’s one of those all in one columns. I personally don’t like them, most of them feel super cheap, use crappy press fittings behind the stamped steel bodies. But it’s what the customer bought. He’s actually finishing his basement alone and realized he wasn’t skilled enough to tile, so paid me to do it, and that’s all I did.

    Inserts suck, and inserts at some point always leak.

    This one was a weird one, as I said above the guy did most of the work himself. He realizes he was in over his head on tile and I care in and fixed his tiling mistakes. He had no waterproofing in the walls, some shitty pan. I did ding him extra on the price because they went over the top on such a small space and wanted three different grout colors which just adds to the work. That being said, the tile work and my glass guy coming in to do the glass will come in at $4k

    If your roommate wants a quote PM me

    That's why my parts bin keeps growing: LCA bushings, CV boot kits, diff/transfer oil, ditch lights, front leaf spring greasable bolts ... I forget what else is in there now.
