    Water is fickle stuff. Tracking a leak can be complicated. Try getting baby powder and directing it along the edge of the window inside. Probably have to remove the rear panel behind the seats and side molding to get at it. From the outside that pic shows water draining from the roof seam which is how they build trucks now that they don’t have gutters. Gutters were the result of old fashioned pinch welding and how to finish it with structure. Much more refined now. But it doesn’t mean that all the seams are forever good. Climb up and ge fly remove the roof trim along the whole seam and see it as well. Have you bolted on roof rack or anything? The third brake light self drains but easy enough to remove to check just o be sure

    finally took care of my roof which had really bad clear coat failure, dents idk where from, etc living 16yrs under the sun, with no regular waxing :) not ready to repaint because when i do it will be the whole truck. i went with 8mil hydrophobic, self healing ppf in a carbon fiber pattern. came out great imo. i have two other cars with factory cf roofs and they look similar to the ppf. pretty undistinguishable. happy with the outcome.

    How did you prep for the vinyl? Assume you removed any peeling clear coat, feathered and sanded smooth the whole roof … did you prime or lay down a coat of paint from a rattle can? Asking because I want to do this “temporary” fix too but was dissuaded by things I read regarding vinyl over failing paint / clear coat.

    i had it professionally done by my detailer. they did a level of sanding and prep taking off the failing clear and smoothing things out. i didn't ask too many details. his work is always impeccable and lasts. i'll prob respray the truck in 5-7yrs so this works for now.

    Threw on a 2014+ TSS bumper, 2" level, 275/70r18's
    Before:

    It ain't much, but its a 227k mile truck. Bumper is not clean by any means, but I plan to get it Raptor lined. There's a possibility of getting rid of the rear chrome bumper and modifying the quarters to be able to accept a rear bumper from a 2014+!

    Also, if anyone has a wrecked 2014+ with h16 fog lights, I need some pigtails to get these fogs working. Toyota wants $65 a piece. Id rather throw used Toyota stuff on rather than new Amazon specials, though I'm not above it!

    My roof and hood are pretty bad, but it's not too noticeable given the color of the paint. I had considered having a wrap done to them, but it seems that the sun here is just a bit too much for even that to last more than a couple of years, last I looked into it.

    That looks great though!:thumbsup:

    thanks. only a cpl years? maybe for a traditional vinyl 'wrap' but this is 8mil ppf which is more durable than a thin 'wrap'. maybe consult with a diff detailer. i'm in calif and it's currently 100+ outside where my truck bakes in the sun and has for yrs. no concerns from my detailer. products have also evolved if you haven't cheked for awhile, might be worth it to try again if it bugs you like i did. cldnt stand seeing it in such poor condition on mine.

    So you're saying this new CF looking stuff will stand the test of time? How many years will that last on the roof?
    Just curious if you know, but does it hide little things like say rock 'ding' on the front of a hood or somewhere?
    Or does the body underneath need to be pristine? What kind of prep is involved?

    my ppf warranty is 10yrs. i bring it in each year for inspection, etc to maintain the warranty.

    as i mentioned, i had it professionally done. contact a reputable detailer in your area would be my suggestion for your questions. good luck.

    I’m on Vancouver island Canada. I can assure you there are no dealers anywhere near here.

    maybe then youtube? don't know what to tell you mang other than an 8mil (thicker) ppf is better than traditional vinyl wrap. also i said detailer....not dealer. just to be clear since they are two different professions.

    Scored a scangauge 3 off eBay, ended at 2am. Made a cellphone, sg3 holder.
    Now I need to find a smaller housing or someone who can 3d print. Overall it came out nice with dual purpose.

    Go to autozone or Oreillys and get pigtails, we order pigtails from them at the shop literally everyday… no sense in getting oem for that

    I can get you part numbers tomorrow if you need

    It is a brand of tint film, particularly their top of the line heat rejection/ceramic film. They also offer CTX line that is pretty good as well.

    I recommend getting ceramic tint at the minimum. You don’t have to go dark either to get the heat rejection benefits of ceramic. Also recommend doing the front windshield!

    Completed four oil changes on Sunday. Two Tundras and Two Highlanders. It was really hot out but I took my time and both Tundras have the Fumoto valve so life was good. (The second Tundra and Highlander belong to my son and daughter-in-law.)
