    Anyone on here run castrol synthetic 75-90 gear oil in their diffs? I bought some but not sure if I should return it to find some redline or something. The Toyota manual says gl-5 so I think it should be fine ?

    And new clock! If this was a Mercedes, id have to route wires through the dash to make this work. Very kind of Toyota to already provide the clock plug even though it wasnt an option on my car.

    Does anyone know someplace i could get some thick sheets of plastic to replace the vapor barrier for my doors? The ones i took off were in pretty poor state.

    The thick painters plastic from home depot would work. Get some liquid nails and glue it on.

    Thats what i was thinking, though id like to find something even thicker than that. Anyone know where i could get vinyl sheets in that size?

    My plan is to cut the sheet to size, then overlay it with more sound deadening material. Making one big ass speaker box out of the door.

    Also i have some of the caulking they use at the factory. Its a 3M product, great stuff, much better then liquid nails.

    Also i have to add that the taking the interior apart was amazingly straightforward. Again if this was a BMW or Mercedes from the same time period, most of the million clips and tabs would be broken, panels would be cracked, covers would be peeled off. Not to leave out the internal Torx and Hexagonal screws to deal with.

    This is such a lovely little truck to work on.

    Buy some raammat and ensolite from Raam Audio.

    $120 gets you enough to do both door panels and rear wall. Will deaden the noise in your cab tremendously.

    The guy in a brown truck dropped this off today.
    Also looking into the 3M tint for windshield (Only cuts 10% light transmission and will massively reduce the heat in the vehicle).

    Help please!
    I'm doing the turn signal mod and want to run my corner lights and bumper lights. As running lights and my corner lights as turn signals. Can I just splice all the wires together and do it that way? Or would that blow a fuse?

    Yes but you need to add a larger bulb on the corner. Otherwise there is not enough resistance in the circuit and it will hyperblink. Search the forum. The bulb size is one this site somewhere. I did it too long ago and I don't remember the size.

    I purchased the same size bulb that was in the original housing but amber vs clear. Non LED. Shouldn't hyper blink should it?
    194 is what I bought

    its too small. it needs more resistance. plus an added benefit to the large bulb is it is brighter and easier for other motorists to see.
