    Have you thought about putting clear film on the headlight to protect it from future UV damage?

    You're good. It's noted in the Executive Committee section of the by-laws.

    Section 4.6, paragraph 5, lines 3-4.

    No UV damage on existing headlights. I'm replacing due to the DTRL melting the housing issue.

    I used this before. Protection doesn't last long.

    You have to follow the direction closely. If left on to long it's a bitch to remove.

    If the new headlights are non Toyota then the chances of UV damage increases. So protection is a must.

    Not bad, then again I don't what they go for.

    Does the headlights have Toyota printed on them? Just in case of fakes.

    Good morning folks. Early start to the day to get going on the engine swap. Possible thunderstorms rolling through so I'm happy we pushed it into the shop last night for this adventure. This will be my first time dropping a subframe to remove an engine, so it should be a good time. It's worth mentioning we don't have a lift, we're attempting this with a Jack and jackstands, maybe an engine hoist to lift the front of the car up
