Found some cloth manual seats for the LX. Unfortunately they were in pretty rough shape so I tore them down and rebuilt them. Still have two more to finish up but they turned out pretty nice.

Also got the matching door cards and found out my rear speakers were blown when I went to swap them so this happened. Also added some carpet since I haven’t had any in mine in years.

Said goodbye to a family member today... Feels like I lost an actual friend... The 45 wasn’t being used at all and I had to recover it in my backyard with the 40. It is Colorado bound.

New sway bar bushings on the front of the 80 today. Got rid of some thunks and squeaks and it corners much better now.

Old bushings on top and in the middle, new one the bottom row.

Got tired of my multiple exhaust leaks, the cats hanging so low and the crossover under the frame. So I fixed that. All new from the y-pipe back routed over the frame.

How does it sound now? I didn’t like the sound of the FlowMaster, but also needed a new Y Pipe and resonator... So I went with a MagnaFlow but later replaced the Y Pipe and the resonator made all the difference. Always wondered what the FlowMaster would have sounded like.

It’s not bad overall. A bit louder then I would have preferred, decent rumble at lower rpms, does get a bit ricerish at higher rpms but thankfully I don’t get into higher rpms often.

Thankfully it’s very quiet when I’m not on the throttle so no droning, at least not that I can hear over the sound of my tires. I also decided to forgo the resonator for the time being. May add one back on later.

I found some Tundra tow hooks for the 200 at the Local pick n pull. They are a lot beefier than the stock LC ones and are a direct replacement. I freshened them up a little with some black paint and bolted them on. I also found some headrests for the rear seat in the Tacoma. They are cloth instead of leather but they’ll do for now!
