  • It really depends on the usage for me, how often, what's it doing blah blah.

    I have plenty of cheap shit that's surprised me/been perfect for my usage. I'm not a pro at anything lol

    • It finally arrived....

      • - Storage cubby installed.
        - GPS module for head unit installed.
        - Carplay on wifes phone tested, all good. No Vehicle speed sensor required for that on this model head unit.
        - As much as I like wireless Android Auto, because I am plugging my phone in to charge anyway, it now uses wired AA and it's clearly faster.
        - TuneIn radio works without any changes in AA so that's nice.
        - Spent only a few mins fluffing about with the Aerpro lead to see if I could get reverse image without needing that second screen plugged in, but I could not. It appears you need to bridge at least 2-3 pins and I was not willing to risk damaging the screen. I have wrapped it safely and secured it in behind the dash. A guy on Facebook told me it can be done and his auto elec did it for him though.

        The storage cubby is just a bit narrow and just a bit lacking in depth to fit an iPhone8 and a Galaxy S10 in it without any overlap and you wouldn't be able to close the door with charging cables connected unless they were on an angle. Bigger phones would struggle - still it gets the phone and cord up out of the way from where it was which I wanted.

        What next? Still musing about exhausts =\

          • I'm still alive.

            Not a heap has changed as I mostly have it the way I want it. 110ks now and everything has been fine.

            I had a major trans service done by Toyota at 100ks, it has had 2 minors done prior. Even having had 2 minors done before, the difference was quite noticeable which is interesting as the car doesn't do what I would consider heavy work. Difference being smoother shifting and less obvious change from Park to Drive.

            Normally I would DIY that job, but the WS fluid was $400 worth for me to buy alone, and for $500 Toyota did the job for me, plus removed the stripped front diff drain bolt (I bought the Kaon kit that included the removing tool but my drain bolt was already too far gone).

            I do still dream about putting a raptor supercharger on it and have come close to installing an exhaust a few times but read so many mixed things about it having very minimal/no performance gain which is all I care about so I've held off.

            I might do my own cat back as a DIY project and see how we go, the section over the rear axle looks challenging as I'm a very amateur welder.

            I did just pop in some Kaon rear door shims as my door was clipping the guide, I also had to flip the striker 180 as it had been lightly bent over time from the door hitting it. Closes perfectly now, I used both shims. Only need a 12mm socket, breaker, and a T40 bit (if you flip the striker).

            Shed is also finished and my hoist is in, which is just an absolute game changer. Engine and box out of race car in prep for new one also.

            Prado winch helped me get cross bar up via a pulley block lol

            • Wow. I just spent my entire night reading this post from start to finish. That's one helluva story you have posted. Thanx so much for the tips & tricks. My next "todo" item is wire up some stedi (https://www.stedi.com.au/micro-st352...bg0VwaAjkkEALw _wcB) to the rear bar. Just need to figure out how to wire them so they come on with the reverse lights (easy) but also have a switch on the dash to turn on as work lights....
              Keep up the good work.

                Hah, cheers mate, not much of a story, just another guy stuffing around with cars.

                Have recently installed a Cel-F also, for boosted 4G signal, unit fits nicely in the rear cargo area trim plastics and ended up using a Kaon spare wheel mount rear antenna which sits nicely out of your view, but has made the car a touch taller.
