    Came out of Westfield Annapolis Mall to find that we'd been screwed

    IMG_7175.jpg

    It's an automotive trim screw, and wasn't driven completely in, so must have picked it up right before we parked. Popped it out, plugged it and pumped it up and on the road in 10 minutes. Those stock Toyos are about 60% done. Won't be long till it get's some real shoes.

    Ended the day with this :eek:, just 40 days short of a year. I must do nothing but drive :burnrubber:

    I agree! I'm not a welding expert but the welds look good too! Also, I saved the blanket it came with. Might wash it and use it for camping. LOL

    Yea the wires definitely alter the quality. But the camera itself is just terrible too. I’m going to send them an email and see if they can send me another camera, maybe we just got some faulty ones.

    Bunch 'o random stuff

    Can you tell me which wires you tapped to have them on all the time? I have halos that I spliced into the side markers, so they're only on when the lights are on, but I want to run them along with the DRLs

    I went into fuse box under the hood. Tapped (ad a fuse or fuse tap ) to the IGN. It’s a 10amp fuse. Plug and play. I’m not one for cutting into wires. The DTRL in pic were just on. Not related to the raptor lights at all. Raptors go on when truck is running/started. hope that helps

    Yikes! @Inked Tacoma, it's a one of a kind custom made shift knob and a guy from 2nd gen forums (@Ulysiss) who sold it to me more than 2yrs ago. His friend made it, and he doesn't do such work anymore. I asked. When I bought it, it's clear coat had been peeling, and it had some cuts and chips from rolling about in his tool chest.
    I took it to a few local auto body paint shops, most turned me down, until one shop sent me to a custom hand paint job guy (Rob Miller customs) who does extremely complex paint jobs for hot rods and murals and pinstripes and so on, and warned me it's going to be very expensive $$$ to restore. He sanded it down, and repaired the damage delicately, and refinished it and clear coated it again for me. But even he said the letters on it, could have been stenciled in or made with epoxy and is really hard to do. He didn't had to re-do my letters much, but had to do some minor touch ups. The original guy who made it must have been one really skilled artist, as it is certainly not easy to do for anyone or even repair by multiple people i checked with. But if I were to guess, what they could've done is buy an 8 ball, drill a hole in the bottom, sand it down, paint it black, and then stencil in the TRD letters, chip in stenciled letters, fill with red epoxy, sand and refinish, and then applied a clear coat. According to the custom paint guy, the TRD letters seems some kind-of epoxy resin cement. I hope i answered your question.
