Swapped both doors on the passenger side to less rusty doors from a color matched junkyard car. Lost my keys at the junkyard. Added Gentex homelink mirror with garage door opener. Cleaned up the KISS drawers. Started hacking up a 60% rear seat in hopes of making a 40% rear seat (very spendy to ship one from AU). Washed off the last vestiges of ski season.
You buried the lead. You should have led with line two. I assume you found them?

No such luck. Drove 100 miles round trip to have another look, and grab more parts. Upside is that I did find a transponder remote key in the junkyard truck, so I'm only out the cost of the blank (assuming I can pair the new key).

Sorry to hear that, only lost one set of keys ever and it cost me $$$$. Good luck with the replacement key.

$220 ish? how bad was the shipping cost?
$70 something. Compare that to $42 for the Lexus ones. Keep in mind, the only other way to buy them is through an eBay US seller who ships from Japan but your total cost would be around $500, and i think that's too much.

That stupid box in the first picture was the reason. It was 1/3 empty too, just air.
The Lexus ones were bubble wrapped and arrived fine. You get charged by the total circumference of the package, and this box ended up pushing it into the "oversized" category.

Takes about a week from when you win the auction until it gets to your doorstep. Amazing really.

Can you get it in LA? I went to a beer place the other day and they had "Pulp" on tap and the bartender said they got it on accident. I said I'll have 10 please lol
Sadly no , I have not been able to find it in LA. Closest place is Irvine (not too far really). I mostly drink it when I go to the Bay Area. It is the best IPA brewery in my opinion. 🍻

Removed non working CD changer from my console over the weekend and started the install of a CB for trail comms. Bought a cmx760 with a remote handset from eBay and then added a fire stick 3’ antenna and a hood mount at summit radio today. Decided to install myself. Wired the power to a cigarette lighter plug in the console (butt splice with heat shrink and all taped up) and snaked the antenna cord down the transmission tunnel. Used an old magazine rack (cut to size) to make a pocket for the space where the cd changer was removed. Lined it with excess 3M vinyl to keep things from falling through the grid. Installed CB in new pocket and also have space for the Yaesu handheld when I pass my test. Mounted the antenna bracket to PS side of hood. Just need a tip on how to get cable from PS footwell to bracket? Will sleep well tonight!

Pretty sano setup for a novice. Just need to figure out how to attach the antenna and then get it tuned.

Finally buttoned up my factory NAV to non-NAV swap and got the speakers installed and amp going. Completed the dual batt system and Redarc charger and finished up rear wiring in the Trekboxx.

Don’t mess with me on my wiring, it isn’t as pretty as I want, rushing for a deadline to hit the T.W.A.T. (edited, must not pass the filter) Trans Wisconsin Adventure Trail this weekend so the final tweaking will have to wait.

Nice setup! Have fun with the TW... :D
Having lived in Wisconsin for over a decade I have never attempted Trans WI trail. From what I have seen it is pretty mild (Subaru level mild). Post some pics when you get back.
