    Polish and wax, wow!

    A lot of vehicles come that way since it’s a dealer-installed option. Both my 200 and T4R have it on the front bumper, first 6” of the hood, and inside each door handle. My ‘14 Avalon has it on the fenders & doors behind each wheel. It severely cuts down on paint damage from rock chips. And the...

    Expected 2-3....ended up with 18 on this first run. Not bad and it's much appreciated! Hand milling them takes some time though so expect the price to increase just a tad on this next run. For those who still want one feel free to message me and I can fit you in. I laid out all the square...

    Climate control problem. 99 lx470

    Along the top yes just clips. I think there’s a single screw in the bottom left corner below the gas/hood release latches, but you shouldn’t even need to remove it to access that area. Just pull the black trim piece below the gauges towards you, then get some trim removal tools or your fingers...

    Climate control problem. 99 lx470

    This exact same thing happened to me last week. To blow cold it had to be on the lowest setting, and one click up would be full heat. Come to find out this little intake hose was disconnected from the cabin temp sensor directly below the ignition cylinder. It’s an easy check and fix for you to...

    Well I do appreciate the interest! Didn't expect more than a few to want one. I’ll be making a small batch of 10 to start out with. Initial price will be $15 + shipping (usually about 4.95 via USPS First Class). If demand is there to make more in the future that price may slightly increase but...

    How-To: TechStream In 5 Minutes

    Probably will but if I were you I’d find a cheaper one. They all do the same thing in the end. I ended up going with the cheaper Washinglee cable a few pages back and it even came with remote tech support. There’re even cheaper options out there. Fair warning: I was going to order a software &...

    Put together an axle puller tool. I think I finally got all the measurements down and hardware picked out. Having access to a manual mill also makes things much easier. This one is spoken for but if anyone would like another just let me know and I can get a price down and put a couple together...

    Torsion bar stuck

    Well I guess it's probably too late now that you've cut them, but I'd try an air hammer
