    Removed the stock TRD decals, the red was obnoxious. Replaced with a more subtle one. It is a crappy decal from ebay and will replace with an OEM eventually, but wanted to see what it would look like first on the cheap.

    96 eye-searing leds...might actually tint the dome plastic or remove one. VERY BRIGHT. DAYLIGHT BRIGHT!
    Removed entire fixture and crimped on eye-connectors for the LEDs and the lead to the map lights (map lights with dome light mod) and then screwed them on with two screws through the rivet/attachment holes for the original dome bulb. Covered with tape so it doesn't rub or short if it comes into contact with the metal roof.
    Note: Driver's side prong for this truck is the positive (red).

    Paint is 'meh' close...but knew that going into this. Toyota's randomness colors are hard to match. I try not to look too closely.

    "Badges? We ain't got no badges. We don't need no badges! I don't have to show you any stinkin' badges!"

    [​IMG]

    Process for Removing Badges:

    Most important advice: Patience!!!

    1. Thoroughly clean, rinse and dry the areas around and in the emblem to be removed, taking care to remove debris and built up deposits in the details of the emblem with a soft toothbrush. A generic spray bottle with a "jet" stream works very well for this. This truck was only 4 months old and had quite a bit of gunk in there already and it gets power-washed bi-weekly.
    2. Heat area with a hair dryer (NOT A HEAT GUN!) until hot (not burning) to touch.
    3. If you are going to reapply or replace the emblem, use painters tape to mark the horizontal and vertical positions of the emblem.
    4. Using a doubled-up piece of nylon dental floss (two strands), apply gentle pressure between the paint and logo while maintaining heat with hair dryer, taking care to avoid snagging on the emblems when moving to the next letter/area. Imagine cutting through a block of clay with a wire...only passing the floss between the emblem and the paint. Do not saw with the floss, it will cut through the adhesive easily with constant pressure. It may help to wrap the floss around something ergonomic as extended periods of pressure against skin can cause discomfort, bruising and even lacerations.
    5. With a soft piece of plastic (I used an old credit card) and avoiding coming into contact of the paint, with a lifting/rolling motion, remove the thick grey adhesive. It helps to keep it intact so you can "pull" it as you use the card. Think of removing rubber contact cement with your fingers by rolling it up into a ball. The adhesive will want to stick to itself more than the backer adhesive when warm.
    6. Using isopropyl alcohol and a microfiber cloth, gently remove the remaining clear adhesive left behind. It helps to keep the area wet with the alcohol to prevent the little beads of adhesive from re-sticking to the paint. DO NOT USE "Goof Off" or any other distilled petroleum products and organic solvents unless you are sure it is safe for your application.
    7. A final buffing and checking for small specks of residual adhesive is important before re-applying any protective surface treatments like wax which the alcohol removed.

    Maybe...

    Installed the bed cap lights!! It turned out VERY well, just put it in channels with a diffuser and an RF dimmer...makes it easy, and remembers what setting it was on, so no blinding myself when only needing a little bit of light, or easy to go full blast to search for loose diamonds, etc. Mounted with just the "hook" side of the velcro to the cap's liner in four spots, x1 on each end and then in the middle, evenly separated. Easy cheesy.

    Installed ADD W1 Oil Catch Can with a piece of bent stock aluminum (so can is level) and m8 x 1.25 stainless bolts with lock washers to the existing threaded mounts on fender wall.

    Pictures to come soon in the daylight, as the pics from this evening look terrible.

    Thanks. Love tinkering away on this truck! Indeed, the lights are really bright at 100%, and couldn't be happier with them. Glad I opted for the RF dimmer. (demo on the video link)

    Sound Deadening Project!

    Thread is here ==> Details, Pics, Rants, Tips, etc

    Pulled the trigger today on a full treatment for the Tacoma after much reading, although more time in searching through the muck to find decent information that wasn't some bro frothing at the mouth about his sick bass and panty-dropping beats. Went with Don from sounddeadenershowdown.com. Seriously, this is the only site you really need to read and digest if you are going the high road. The low road, DIY materials from hardware stores...have fun deciphering the info that is plastered all over the net.

    Cannot express how impressed I am with Don's knowledge, impeccable responses, straight-forward answers and willingness to help...AWESOME!! Expensive, but if you are gonna do it, do it right the first time, and get it from SDS.

    From Don:
    I've made a few changes to the 2nd generation Tacoma treatment kit since Steven did his. He also got the doors a little backward so it will be worth reviewing the door h0w-to on my site. You can trust the adhesive on the Velcro strips. Steven's concerns were based on the generally available "Industrial Strength" which will fail.

    I'm not having 1/4" CCF manufactured anymore. CCF has no acoustical properties - its function is mechanical. It keeps two other things from making contact with each other. As long as it is thick enough to do that, it's thick enough. I only used 1/4" in the floor pans (where the material is subject to compression from the weight of your feet and legs) and it turned out to be easier and less expensive to double up 1/8" where I need the extra thickness.

    I don't have any specific installers in Southern CA. Bing at Simplicity in Sound is doing some installations but he's up in San Jose. Honestly though, if you're at all interested in spending a few days to do it yourself, are a little handy and have a shop manual, it's pretty easy and always interesting, at least to me :)

    Here's what I would do as a full treatment for your Tacoma -

    Front Doors (each):
    5 CLD Tiles, outer skin
    1 CLD Tile, probably cut into smaller pieces, inner skin
    1 CLD Tile, cut into smaller pieces, trim panel
    Extruded Butyl Rope
    6.1 ft² MLV
    6.1 ft² 1/8" CCF
    5 ft² 3M Thinsulate Acoustic
    2.5 Velcro Strips, adhesive 2 sides

    Rear Doors (each):
    5 CLD Tiles, outer skin
    1 CLD Tiles, probably cut into smaller pieces, inner skin
    1 CLD Tile, cut into smaller pieces, trim panel
    Extruded Butyl Rope
    5.1 ft² MLV
    5.1 ft² 1/8" CCF
    4.5 ft² 3M Thinsulate Acoustic
    2.5 Velcro Strips, adhesive 2 sides

    Kick Panels (each):
    .5 CLD Tiles
    .8 ft² MLV
    .8 ft² 1/8" CCF
    1 Velcro Strip, adhesive 2 sides

    Floor:
    7 CLD Tiles
    33 ft² MLV
    48 ft² 1/8" CCF (extra is to double up in the foot wells)
    2 Velcro Strips, adhesive 2 sides

    Back Seat Platform / Riser:
    3 CLD Tiles
    9.8 ft² MLV
    9.8 ft² 1/8" CCF
    2 Velcro Strips, adhesive 2 sides

    Roof:
    14 CLD Tiles
    23 ft² 3M Thinsulate Acoustic

    Back Wall:
    5 CLD Tiles
    8.7 ft² MLV
    8.7 ft² 1/8" CCF
    3 Velcro Strips, adhesive 2 sides

    General Notes
    HH-66 is a contact adhesive that will only bond materials with vinyl content. That means MLV to MLV, CCF (like the material I sell with vinyl content) to CCF and MLV to CCF. You need to coat both surfaces and let them dry until just tacky, 3-5 minutes. Press the two parts together. The bond is more than strong enough to work with immediately. It will achieve its full strength after a few hours.In most cases you won't need to coat the entire surface - tacking in a few spots is usually sufficient.

    Velcro Strips can be cut in half (2”X2”), or thirds, for all but the most demanding applications. When working with the self-adhesive side(s) of the Velcro Strips press the entire assembly into place. It is a good idea to gently separate the hook and loop sides and press them down individually to make sure the bond is complete.

    I think it’s important that the MLV and CCF layers be removable. It’s just not a good idea to install these materials assuming that vehicle maintenance will never be required. Preserving the ability to remove and replace the barrier won’t harm performance and should be considered during installation.

    Overlapping MLV is one way to deal with seams. I usually prefer to cut 2” wide strips to use as “tape”. I butt the pieces of MLV together and then use HH-66 to bond the 2” strip over the seam. This is almost always easier and makes it easier to follow compound curves.

    Totals:
    58 CLD Tiles

    1 roll Extruded Butyl Rope

    75.5 ft² MLV
    90.5 ft² 1/8" CCF
    42 ft² 3M Thinsulate Acoustic
    19 Velcro Strips, adhesive 2 sides
    1 32 oz can HH-66 Vinyl Contact Cement

    Rear Wall MOLLE Panel...

    Plywood, cheapo carpet.
    LOTS of zip ties
    1" webbing
    Hight temp hot glue
    Patience, lots of patience...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Cut board to fit, drilled a zillion holes (1.5" horizontal spacing, 1" vertical spacing)
    Put carpet on board with adhesive, used a soldering iron to melt a clean holes through the carpet for zip ties / bolts.
    Anchored the ends of each run, used a "spacer" to make the loops so they are identical (tired several shapes/sizes, its 1" wide and 5/16" thick), drop of hot glue to hold the webbing in place, tighten down the zip tie to finish it off. Rinse, repeat ~300 times.

    Ordered a bunch of MOLLE pouches, anchored a fire extinguisher into the plywood, mounted tools (small shovel) so they don't flop around, so very useful. Now my hazard stuff is easily accessible and in its own velcro rip out bag, same with first aid kit, etc etc.
