    Another badge down. And for plastic, this is great. A few weeks on the stuff and same as new, no signs of needing help.

    Well, per normal, grille needs more work, looks way better in picture. And, hood release clips are toast. But all is not lost, just a set back as should be expected. Here’s a sneak peak, and the boy’s 05 4R that he’s never driven...yet.

    I’m gonna go against the grain here and not recommend plasti-dip on the grille. But if you do, don’t primer because that will be the hard part to get off. I was not happy with the finish on the inset surfaces. The faces were fine, but my attempt to clean up those hard to reach places led to instant failure in general. And, all day getting the primer off :)

    I do have a set of new safety latch bar retainer clips, however...

    Since you are coating on plastic, I wouldn't recommend any primer. Instead use a good "adhesion promoter" prior to coating, no primer. I'd scuff up the surface prior then use grease/wax remover to clean before adhesion promoter.
    This is my choice for adhesion promoter: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07MP1D3KZ/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8
    This is my choice for bedliner but there are many good ones to choose from, has a relatively mild texture: https://www.amazon.com/Seymour-20-041-Truck-Bed-Coating/dp/B018Y3JRBC/ref=sr_1_1?crid=2ZWAAET33DGSA&dchild=1&keywords=seymour+bedliner&qid=1618269860&sprefix=seymour+bedliner%2Caps%2C275&sr=8-1

    I think anytime you plastic dip a grill, it is mandatory you fuck up the first time

    Super bad shape rear window bottom weather strip. Used some extra plasti dip that was laying around. A replacement would be nice, but now I don’t cringe as I walk toward the truck. I can always replace it down the road.

    Also had one of these little lights go out, so replaced both.

    Is that liner on the 4runner? It looks great! Is it pretty gritty to the touch?

    it is liner. The truck was completely trashed and repaint was cost prohibitive. I had a reference to a shop my buddy used for his 80’s blazer, so I got to see it before pulling the trigger. This stuff is like heavy orange peel. UV resistant and looks new with a pressure wash. Not for everyone to go full truck. But it worked great in this case.

    edited for a couple of pics of the 4R this am.

    Taking a break from the wild world of suspension and the such. Carpet cleaning.

    While carpet dries not fast enough, detail on the plastic.

    I’m not sure who jumped on it back in the day, but that bazooka drop in has been awesome.

    This car guys super cleaner is really good. Prob run the CG plastic restore, but it’s not needed.

    I would get both. The CG Plastic Restorer is bulletproof on the exterior. Like a wax but not. The CG super cleaner is just that. Super good.

    Maybe and likely out of production, but this sub plug and play is an awesome addition to JBL setups.

    Yea, if you don’t have this you should. I don’t work for these guys, but damn their stuff is good.

    Still loving this thread!

    How hard was it to get the carpet clean? My Sequoia is pretty bad and I'm debating just replacing it.

    With carpet cleaner soap and a pressure washer, maybe 90% good for 16yrs old. It's not new, but seems that way because it was bad before. Lots of brown water running down the drive at first. Definitely worth it if you have access to a pressure washer.

    Thanks @300BLK. It has its little dings here and there and the tonneau cover decided to start failing with it's clear coat, but I like it.

    Coilovers are at King for extended upgrade. Gonna leave the 650 springs on there for now. Change one thing at a time. With the springs out I put the tires on and dropped the truck one side. Seemed to pretty much stuff the wheels in the wells with just enough clearance. I should have taken a pic but maybe later. Testing Rustoleum on a skoal cap. I picked it up wet, but it looks interesting so far.

    I’ll probably try the single stage Rustoleum bed liner because I have it. But I’m going to wait for the adhesion promoter that @Glock 40 recommends. I won’t be doing anything until next weekend, I may get the bed spray he likes as well.

    Well Zoro won’t ship the Seymour liner to CA, Amazon might, but I’m not holding my breath...

    I too believe this is a good fit with the factory setup. Nothing to blow anyone away but updates the sound quality quiet well, more so using BT than the radio.

    Something I did to eliminate the rattle coming from the seat bottom (packing from my bed cover) -
