Yeah, I figured all ^ that out as I was fixing my 'intrusion'.
Which is how I did the passenger front door.
Passenger door was a piece of cake once I disassembled the driver door properly.
Live and learn...

Funny you mention the hole in the boot...
I tried everything, nothing worked, couldn't get anything to go through.
So I did poke holes in all the boots.
Properly remedied afterwards, of course.
You, sir, are more man than I if you got something to make it through those crazy angles.
But funny you brought that up all the same.

Upgraded the OEM fog lights to yellow Xenon Pro LEDs.

Not quite today, but got my Scion T10015 head unit installed Absolutely LOVE IT so far. Somehow much better audio quality than the Sony Xplod that was in there - despite having similar specs.

Did the old de-badging of the car today. Not a big fan of fake chrome nor just random badges and old dealership badges that are put on cars. All about the small details for me. Near future ill be getting the rear hatch chrome paint matched as well as the door handles. Don't need to show the process as its super simple. Followed the video on youtube that AMMO NYC put up. Spent maybe $30 total on the compound which I already had, the solvent for removing the glue and fishing wire, borrowed moms hair dryer. Super simple and took maybe an hour.

Well it wasn't actually today, it was Monday but I upgraded the front brakes on my SR5 to the larger sport ones. My old rotors were warped horribly and I was tired of all the shaking when stopping. I used Brembo rotors and Cardone coated calipers. For the pads I went with Akebono. I used the Mitivac one person method to bleed them and all is well. All the shaking is gone and it does feel like it has a little bit stronger braking. I had read that you have to modify the backing plate to allow for the bigger rotors but all I had to do was just bend them back slightly; no big deal. I went back and forth for a few weeks about whether to upgrade or just buy rotors and pads in the original size. Glad I did it cause one piston on the LF caliper wouldn't retract; seized. What's really odd is both pads on the LH side were worn straight and equal. But on the passenger side the inner pad was worn much more than any other pad. But all 4 pistons retracted easily on that side. Makes no sense.

*DISCLAIMER* - I actually didn't do these things myself but had it all done today. I bought my '07 just over a year ago and it had 149k miles on it. Other than regular oil changes (luckily!) I couldn't find any records of any other routine maintenance being done. 150k calls for a big tune-up...YIKES! Now that I am at 162k, it was time:

- Spark Plugs
- Fuel Injection service
- Front/Rear differential oil
- Transfer Case oil
- Coolant system drain/refill
- Power steering flush/fill
- Brake fluid bleed/refill

Now back to simple routine oil changes! Here's to another 150k miles!
