    So doing the clutch on my daily. It appears the PO lost or the shop did or something the transmission dust cover/inspection plate.

    Not finding a PN or anything. Anyone ever replace theirs? or am I screwed?

    yeah. I found it. Toyota calls it a "rear end plate" so was weird finding it.


    PN - 1136162010

    Can't believe its been without one this whole time but..oh well.


    Fluid was shit too. So hoping after rebuilding the MC and Slave, new fluids, new clutch, it'll not slip and I can actually floor it for once.

    I did a headlight retrofit myself. Quiet easy to do actually.

    I started with fresh TYC headlights from Amazon.

    Baked them at 270 degrees for 10 min each, removed the lens covers, and the OEM bulb reflector shield.

    Installed the projector housings.

    Installed the lens back on, baked it again for about 10 min, and pressed them on with some channel locks.

    Before:

    After:

    Forgot the cutoff pic, I have some aiming to do, and I'm parked on a hill so that's why it's kind of weird:

    I had the same thing with mine. Bellhousing cover plate thing was missing and took a while for the dealership to find the right part that I was talking about because they didn't know what to call it either lol

    Looks great. Clean look.
    Nice to see just a simple projector install without all the halos or other fancy RGB stuff in there.

    Did you upgrade the shift forks? Or get it annodized?

    I believe there is a rubber trim piece for that as well. Maybe it's included.

    There is indeed. Found that too. Bolts are a bit tricky but think I got it all.

    I was able to get the fuel tank down and get the charcoal canister out. I also took the time to clean up some frame rust I didn't get to when I had the bed off last year.

    I also may have discovered the source of my PO442 code

    I've been lucky enough to have a winch and been able to use it several times over the last month to rescue a couple of friends, a couple of strangers and a self rescue as well. I had not done any cleaning or neat re-spooling of the line between uses and my self rescue was on an extremely red clay-ish muddy hill so I knew the line was dirty and had particles in the fibers which cannot be optimal for longevity. So... decided to pull it out a little past the start of the red warning zone, and clean it up.
    tmp-1638108409245_copy.jpg
    I walked the line with a hose and sponge lightly scrubbing off the mud, sand, grass and any other foreign material on the line. My tree strap was embedded with crap as well so did that too.
    tmp-1638108409377_copy.jpg I then rewalked the line several times with a towel tightly gripped around the line to wipe/squeegy it as much as possible. Not wanting to spool up a wet line I hooked it to a tree and draped it out over a couple of chairs to dry for the rest of the sunny day in (not really sunny that often this time of year) Humboldt County.
    tmp-1638108409214_copy.jpg
    Once it dried out I knelt at the fairlead with a headlamp on and neatly respooled the line back onto the drum.

    A bit of deferred maintenance now completed I celebrated with a frosty adult beverage.

    PS - several of the rescues were of the lengthier variety and I think I want/need a winch line extension. At least 25 feet. I've seen the Bubba rope offerings but want any other suggestions the TW hive mind might know of.
