    Black Belt here. As you stated thought processes are applied to all manufacturing processes. I employ Six Sigma to every project that I am involved in. In fact, I can facilitate any lean process to any subject area and allow the team improve their processes. Okay, enough of the professional platform LOL. Cheers

    Six sigma rocks!

    1980's I was working in semiconductors. PDP 11/44 with Fortran, so I could crunch process data to see trends. It worked! Before that is was blindly assemble and test. Once wafers were tested, it showed which should go to mil-spec devices (expensive ceramic package) and went to cheaper consumer-grade plastic packages. We have much better insight. I wasn't appreciated in San Jose. My employer was known to "grind employees up" work. 80 hour work weeks, just exhausted. No joy. No vacation for three years (gulp!). Too much work to be done. Yes, yields are up, profits are up, we are shipper more product (right wafers getting into the right package meant higher yields), but we need more! Well, I said screw it, took all my vacation in one lump (six weeks), and went bicycling in New Zealand! No cell phones those days.

    A few months later was working in Germany. Robert Bosch GmbH in the IC facility. The first thing I noticed were wall charts of process flows up on the walls. Everyone in the company lived and breathed a lean process for Automotive Engineering.

    Some years later, I was back in the states, landed in Texas at Motorola in 1993, and they had this big thing about "Six Sigma". I just smiled. What a crazy rodeo this has been.

    Installed a @MESO Stealth PRO shift knob, along with KTJO 400W anytime plug and play mod and a rear 110v/USB-C/USB/volt meter and replaced the ETC button space with another couple USB’s.

    When I drilled the shifter trim ring for the wires to pass through I flipped over a tape gun and used the handle to push the trim ring up. The handle of the tape gun protected the boot from the drill bit and all of the shavings went into it.

    I pushed the e-brake boot down after this.

    I put in the extended engine well Splash Guards that @Stoked4 sells here on TW. What an improvement in the coverage to keep water and mud from in the engine bay.

    Left side OEM pulled and ready to install the replacement.

    I know it’s off subject but thought I would share. I recently lifted my house about 60” thankfully the lift, tires and other things I plan to do on my Tacoma is much cheaper lol317073E5-BCD5-43DD-AE2F-C3DA4D59D981.jpg

    Wow, even though your home's footprint is on the smaller side I would hate to see the cost of this. Why are you doing this? Also, did you think about going to 108" and putting in a mancave/basement?

    Fresh oil, filter, and a scrub a dub dub. Also got the Midland GMRS installed and did the rear diff breather for good measure. Ready for some spring runs!

    It was to put in a basement. I had a crawl space previously with foundation issues. And yes house was on smaller side but now doubled the houses square footage basically. Lifted 60” plus 3’10” basement walls so ended up around 9’ ceiling height in the new basement

    Yesterday, installed a 69 Honda Trail 90! Kind of sketchy bringing it home but it was only 5 miles away and the hitch mount came with it. Definitely have to rework it a bit. Going to be the camping bike.

    You using your own air chuck with that Smitty compressor? I wanted to do the same but read that it can damage the compressor without screwing on the chuck before kicking on the compressor.
