    I didn't even get the top 2 on the fender in there. :annoyed::bananadead:

    Just gave the rest of them a good coat of Loctite. If it comes off, it's taking the whole fender with it. I couldn't get my fender to loosen up even with all the bolts removed. There was a thick bead of seamsealer it looked like that they used to glue that fender to the cab.

    That’s how it was for the tacoma. Lexus went smoothly for the most part. Biggest issues I have with installing a snorkel is the templates seem to be garbage most the time.

    I may have downloaded the file for a printable Austrian replica. Just not sure where I put it 2 or 3 years ago.
    Overhead switch pannel is on the list, possibly some new HVAC knobs, I'd like to figure something out for my tcase shifter, that stupid front cup holder divider, ultraguage mount, phone holder it never ends. I found a few things on thingiverse for tacomas but it's mostly 3rd gen crap. :bananadead:

    Yeah the previous owner super glued it back together and when I went to adjust it, it fell apart. Of course it was the driver side arm that broke so I tried to flip the divider 180°, and wouldn't you know it doesn't fit that way. With 5 other cup holders within arms reach I just use that spot for random pocket stuff and loose change now.

    My cup holder broke, super glue and epoxy wouldn't stick. I drilled a hole in it and tapped it for a little screw. It won't fall apart now. I didn't want to buy another one because it's a weak design and would likely fail again.
    There is also the feeling of victory after a successful repair.

    Cover the whole fender in masking tape. Let’s say 6 bolts attach to the snorkel and go through the fender, go grab six bolts of the same pitch and about an inch long, cut the heads off and sharpen them to a point. Screw the unsharpened end into the snorkel, align everything and press the sharpened studs into the masking tape. Bam you have an accurate template

    my snorkel was originally for a FZJ80, i did the above mentioned way and it turned out great.

    @bobsuruncle I feel like you. Alone at a random bar drinking by myself



    O and @hx989 I ordered an hptuner that'll be here Monday. Once I get my tune done (hopefully next week) your free to borrow it for a week or two. I don't know how the credits and stuff work though (like tied to that specific module or the ECU)

    You'll never notice if it's crooked if you only take pictures of it flexing out. It's like the Myspace angle with chicks.

    Shit I need to get on that hpt action. Im curious if they could tune in the S mode logic.

    And I need some cam gears. I have a feeling PLA printed gears aren't gonna hold. :anonymous:

    Flexing while at an angle and not straight on so it looks like massive flex

    Well once I know how it all works if I can I do t mind the unit being whored around the TW people. I'd rather it get used than just sit. Just not sure how the credits work exactly with tiring to a specific car


    Don't mind the spelling mistakes...there's a reason I don't respond often via phone lol.
