    Thanks man!

    I retrofitted my Tacoma, was only a matter of time until I did it for the Tundra.

    Your write up was key! I’ve never messed with Permaseal before and in your write up you said something like separate the adhesive and I was like “wtf” and proceeded to try and pry apart like my Tacoma. Wrong. Eventually figured out what you meant and made my way all the way around the headlight with a small thin flat head and basically scraped the permaseal from the lens and it started to become easier. From there worked around the whole thing and once I felt it was separated enough started to pry and it began to give way. Took three or four bakes on the first light, then 2.5 bakes on the second (kinda got the hang of it).
    But that first light I was all “fuck this shit I’m over it” and by the end “I could probably do this again” :rofl:

    I have a “free” Mini H1 kit I’ll be throwing in. Once I sell the loaner headlights I picked up I should only be in it my time and a can or two of paint. #BudgetRetro

    Decided it would be wise to replace fluids prior to skids going on.
    Ordered Ravenol J1C1003 MTF-3 75w for the transfer case which will be here sometime next week.
    I’ll run by the auto parts store for Mobil 1 75w-90 synthetic (with LSD additive) for the diffs.

    With nearly 70k on the odo and unknown if the prior owner had it changed it’s a bit overdue as well. He claims to have done all required services as per the manual.
