silentpoet Spent 2-3 hours yesterday replacing the HID bulbs in my daily driver. 50 bucks for generic Chinese bulbs(pair) versus 90+ for one bulb plus labor from Toyota. I figure I saved about 450 or so. But all the time I was looking at my caddy and thinking it would be a 20 minute job on it.

Too Many Projects Cut out the weak spot on the rocker.







All better now...



Moved on to the bucket seat mounts. I had the left one welded in a couple years ago but the seat was offset to the left because I used the outer hole to locate it. Cut them off and started over...



Got them both done and grabbed the shifter hump. Drew a line around it for cutting.





And 30 seconds later, we have a hole.

MARTINSR I had a brother in law come by my work yesterday with his Rav4 that the muffler had disconnected from the center pipe. On the phone it sounded like it was "rotted" from what he was saying, it didn't add up and I was hoping he was wrong. He has little money and that would have SUCKED for him. I was thrilled to see that the pipe had simply broken in half at a previous repair where they had put a sleeve over it. He came by my house last night and I was able to weld it for him lickity split along with adding a gusset so hopefully it doesn't happen again.

But they make that damn thing without a hanger all the way from the engine to the muffler, kinda odd. Most systems like that would have another hanger in front of the rear axle area. So ALL the forces are going right on that bend before the muffler.

You could weld an old socket on for the extension trick gearhead mentioned.

when you make this, add a 1/2 drive square to the handle end.. this way you can put the ratchet or b-bar in the end and have extra leverage without making a long tool that won't fit in tool box..

The Media wont say who ,all they will say is 2.1 billion people had the identity stolen be the Russians, it is all over the News for about 2 weeks now ,I will try to find an article, and post it ,

when I bought my computer they installed Kaspersky on my computer but when I had it updated and more memory added a few weeks ago ,the would not do any thing until it was removed .Best Buys.
