    Shop work? Don't even need tools for these little tasks!

    Thinking if the weather holds I'll be putting Wet Okole Neoprene on the armrests of all four doors, and probably paint the back door panels to match what I have done to the front.

    Replace my brake light bulbs and plot a selling strategy for my Ford so I can buy a Tacoma.

    Here we go... Easy day...Sunny & warm... Let's start:

    1. Modded FJ TRD Centercaps
    Tools used:
    Dremmel with Thin Cut blade
    My Trusty SAK
    Dow 44 Grease - Used a bit on each tab for easier insertion

    Height Difference:
    [​IMG]

    Side to Side Comparison
    [​IMG]

    Cut - note the amount removed
    [​IMG]

    Finished - I used the Snap Ring in the photo - comes with the TRD centercaps
    [​IMG]

    It was easier to snap in place by placing a dab of grease in each tab. Pretty strong hold.

    2. Fumoto Valve Kit installed - Oil Changed, I used the SS Clamp, the other one (red) was a bitch to bite with a pair of pliers w/o flying up in the air.

    3. AEF Pro Dry S installed

    [​IMG]

    4. TRD Shift Knob installed

    [​IMG]

    5. Ordered a set of PIAA's 520 and a light bar N-Fab, should be in by the end of this week. More modding on the way!! :woot:
