After removing the PAIR, my throttle cable bracket didn’t sit high enough. I read on here these brackets were NLA but I pulled the trigger on one and it came in. Much better.

Hey. Good to see the progress and some more beach and water pics. I'll live vicariously through them. I think you've sold me on the Weathertech mats as well. I've got the AVM? or whatever the cut-to-fit ones from Costco are called right now. I ended up getting my "tall" cable bracket from one of the used parts guys on the forum, did you find it in partsouq?

Hey Mike, thanks for the words. Love the Weathertech, I like that they’re made in the USA and their quality is phenomenal. The few beach trips with them have been invaluable in keeping the fine Hawaiian beach sand out of my carpets. Additionally, whenever the kids eat or drink anything inside the cruiser, it looks like a pack of hyenas had their way with an elephant carcass. All contained on the ol’ weathertechs!

Regarding the bracket, partsouq didn’t have it available so I bought it through Genuine Toyota Parts - Wholesale Prices | Modern Toyota Parts - https://wholesaledirect.moderntoyota.com/

I like these guys. They’re prices are competitive albeit they take a little bit to ship (~7 work days). A phone call is all it took for them to verify they could get the parts I wanted even though they weren’t in their stock.

Look at the reflection of the clouds on that pristine hood! Oh wait, that’s just my s***ty oxidized paint 🙁. That’s okay, she runs like a dream.

My kiddos are doing their part for beach cleanup! It was a windy and relatively chilly Easter Day for us but it was still beautiful to be out amongst nature.

Little bits here and there getting done. I still have a mountain of parts to get through but that’s scheduled for May. In the meantime, I tried extending my breathers and was successful for the front and rear diff. As for the t-case and tranny? Yeah not so much. I had a helluva time finding them. I found numerous threads with some subjective photos that didn’t help me much and since I was in doubt, I shelved that plan for now. Here are some terrible pics for you without any frame of reference whatsoever.

Then I got myself an EGR temp sensor kit from Huddexpo, @LC4LIFE. Great service, fast shipping and 10/10 will buy from again.

That’s a wrap for now.

Going back to your throttle cable retention bracket; did you "plastidip" the little cable hook end or did it ship that way? I've seen pictures with a lot of them and they all look like bare metal. Just curious.

It shipped that way.
