Picked up some new-to-LX seats from @NC LX and fully installed last week. They are really great for our Son/Daughter - manual bases with Kia uppers. Son did a lot of clean up at that time, too, to the interior.

Does that have the cooler in the console?
Does that have the cooler in the console?

I am pretty sure no - unless you add ice :)

I saw some pics of the JDM cooler and it has controls etc.
You’re going to need a new panty drawer...
Looks like you have a bit of a leak.

Yea I had hit some surface rust with Fluid Film, drove it around a bit, forgot about it, and then like a dumb dumb let it sit on the concrete.
Tried to swap in a head unit from my new Taco and need the connector harness pieces.

Picked this up for that purpose.

Son has trade it back to use for our Prius V, so we will be working on it going forward! :)
