    I hope not to need the pickle fork; too damaging potential, but we will see.
    My units were only installed 2 summers ago, so hopefully won't be too stubborn. Next weekend I aim to tackle the project. I've found these video's most helpful

    Just got to make sure you find center on the panel from the back side. I used the holes for the retaining clips for the panel and measured to the center of the opening of the speaker opening and transfer that to the back of the panel making sure that I was between the 2 horizontal groves on the face of the panel. Then just used a drill bit to make a starter hole and used a saber saw to cut them out.

    My latest fuel mileage calculation. A lot of towing and a lot of very slow driving at my works yard.

    Tried to vinyl wrap my new AlphaRex headlights with some clear vinyl. It did NOT GO Well... :annoyed: When I tried to pull on the vinyl, I couldn't get enough leverage with the light sitting on the table. Lesson Learned. What i did get smoothed out, looked great. I'll try again once I get them on the truck.
    My plan is to vinal wrap them and then apply Ceramic coat.

    Installed a toolbox between the header rail and the wheel wells for my tonneau-equipped DCLB. I was a little nervous, since all I used was CAD (Cardboard Aided Design) to see if the dimensions would fit. With a couple added 2x4 sections on the bottom and 2 inch thick 4x4 sections on the rear, it rocks right into place and won't budge more than an eighth inch. I added the ratchet strap as insurance; two is one and one is none.

    8F522295-AEC3-4ECC-9374-DDA0084C5AA0.jpg

    The box itself is a WeatherGuard Super Lo-Side, P/N 186-3-01. As you can see, I can carry a whole damn auto parts store in it. The box edge protrudes far enough past the cover to act as a seat, but is short enough so I still have nearly the bed capacity of a short bed truck. Couldn't be happier. Now, do I paint it black or leave it be...

    Installed some fog lights on the wife’s Corolla. The LE did not come with them, even has an option. But there are several aftermarket kits available.

    Parked next to a 2nd gen...so it counts. Sorry for the crappy pix. Raining out.
