    Put it up for sale on Sunday. Got it sold on Tuesday. Getting it ready for the new owner.

    Tough decision to let it go, but it's paid for and with the proceeds, the wife and I want to pay off a few thing. Ready to be debt free this year and this was one step in that direction. Nice owning it for the short time we have. This was our 4th Toyota off-roader, one FJ, two T4Rs and a Taco. I'll be back in another Toyota more than likely. Prob an import Prado J95 or an older LC. Looking at a Nissan Patrol Y61 as well. We'll see...

    I paid up for the one with suction cups. Can transfer b/w vehicles and even use in rentals. Bright idea to use in rental car from DAL to Goodfellow was a fail, even though TX toll roads were supposed to accept SUNPASS (admittedly my reading comprehension is < 30% (as further evidenced by neglect for the title of this ’thread’)). Hert$ passed along the 8.95 tolls and 9.95 handling fee. Lesson learned…...

    NV and UT might be in the way?

    Found another good use for my orbital sander. Polished the windshield (after cleaning it good and taping off rubber trim).
    Used Griots garage polish and these pads

    It’s super clear now and no more wiper blade chatter either!

    Kept the sander on low speed. Learned the hard way it’s best to turn off the sander while still on the glass to prevent polish splattering everywhere while it slows to a stop.

    If the cabin has an air filter ... does that mean there is a special filter for just the oil that needs to be changed? If so, how often should it be changed? o_O:notsure::crapstorm:

    @TXsandyTaco I can't believe I've never thought to polish the glass, but that's a good idea! How often do you do it (or plan to if this is the first time)? Just the windshield or the windows too?

    The very idea of a windshield that clean, and a windshield that lasts long enough to polish is utterly beyond my comprehension. I just wash the windshield every time I fill up (and usually in between) and can stretch the lifespan of a windshield to 2 years if I ignore all the cracks that don't pass directly in front of my vision.

    First time I’ve done it and it makes a world of difference (of course you then must also clean the inside with a good streak free cleaner). Some suggest clay baring it first so you are sure to remove any stuck on debris. Lots of YouTube vids out there on this..also totally removes water spots. Some also apply a glass sealer after polishing but I haven’t tried that. I will be doing all my glass (maybe not the rear) I’m guessing every 6 months…I’ll see how long it holds up!

    I'm gonna look into this, watch some yt vids. I keep my glass pretty clean bc dirty glass drives me crazy, but polishing will take it to the next level! Thanks!

    I wish that were a simple fix for me. Mines all pitted from the blowing dust/dirt. I'm going to need to replace the glass eventually.

    You would be amazed how much you can do with just a $150 flux core welder from harbor freight. I've done so many small projects with mine and works great, plus it stores away in a tote bin with all my welding gear so it doesn't take up a lot of garage space.
