    Rear doors and window are getting the UV treatment today, I think 50% over the smoke. Maybe 70%. I don't remember what we talked about back in August. Just some protection against the sun for my kids.

    I'm going to guess my bumper won't be here for another 3-4 weeks, and I need to decide between PC and painting it. I'm leaning PC, unless the cost is just absolutely insane.

    Hood decal arrived (faux Pro). As soon as it warms up a bit I'll dip the scoop and install.

    I'm now over $4k (net) in mods in a year. I did not expect to do that. :bananadead:

    The paint protection film is, though. I didn't realize they also put it on the scoop.

    Got a rough texture, now I know it was because I wasn't applying wet enough. Will put on another couple coats when it gets warmer.

    I had held off dipping for the longest time because my brain couldn't trust this was removable. Now I'm going to attempt to bronze the TACOMA badges to match the wheels, just for something different before I decide to take them off or not. I doubt I'll be able to find a good match, but the V6 badge I took off will serve as the test bed.

    Center. I think I will pick up the extensions at some point this year for when I’m ready to make that jump. One of the benefits of going with this one.

    I like the CH4x4 buttons a bit better, at least when it comes to the graphics (more adult), but it sounds like the AOB switches match the lighting better. So I'm leaning AOB.

    Since shipping is the same for one button or more, I'm going to pick up the bumper light switch, and I think the next likely option might be ditch lights.


    So, this one? https://www.aironboard.com/online/push-switch-9b76nb-12volt-toyota-oem-a-pillar-lights.html

    or this one? https://www.aironboard.com/online/p...ota-oem-replacement-wide-lights-new-blue.html

    Or give me a better option.
