    Too funny... I did mine this weekend too... I was not part of the group buy though. I already had them for about a week before I did the install.

    Interesting mounts. They must have changed them since I installed mine.

    When you got hood strut Ball Sockets and Nutserts laying around I say why not make the mod look a little more like something Toyota would do the Japanese have a word for it Kaizen meaning continuous improvement. Good to see it has held up well :cool:

    Well I guess in some ways I have been taking a class for 25 years now thats about how long I have worked for Toyota at the dealership level. So always looking for continuous improvement is the base philosophy Toyota has always used in all there training classes from the dealer principle level down to a valet and the philosophy it is still working today. ;)
