    I thought I'd post the big list of scheduled maintenance items.

    There's a lot of things that can help keep your car happy.

    I went to Kauai as well a couple summers ago and was amazed at the popularity of Toyotas there. Seemed like all the locals had 4 runners or tacomas and the rest were all rental cars

    thanks for the maintenance info, will keep that in mind
    yes rust is definitely an issue down here, but im surprised my p5 hardly has any.. if anything the bolts are pretty rusted underneath lol

    installed the teins today, s-tech springs. front was a breeze but the back gave me a headache.
    bolts were all seized up; many breaks and a couple beers later until we were able to finish the back
    also put air suspension on a friends g35
    didnt take any pics of the wago as i started late and ended at night.. so thought id at least post a pic from today

    (p5 in le garage)

    funny story. i locked my keys in the car trying to program the new keyfob that came in (er well.. used from amazon) for my autolocks so i wouldnt have to use my key all the time..
    got a bit annoyed bc i couldnt program it (also ran to walmart for batteries) so i gave up and sat on the porch only to realize i left my keys in the car.
    had to pry the door open a bit using a pretty thick screw driver and slide a skinny pole with a hook in to unlock it via autolock buttons.
    realized how easy it is to break into p5's, i have a kill switch but may try to up my security but not sure how

    heres the pics of the wago with the springs on em.. i think itll drop a tad bit as it sits in a bit
    i havent washed her in forever but im going to give it a good wash and detail maybe this wk
    also getting tint this wk
    those racks made me feel a bit sick.. i really want to upgrade them sometime in the future but im not sure where to get the channel fillers for em. any recommendations?

    Sits good! And have two kill switches if you're worried. One for the fuel pump, and one for the clutch pedal.

    And for the rack, are you looking to just fill the holes where the crossbars go, or get rid of everything completely? Either way that stuff pops up in the FS section fairly often.

    (I personally like the strips that run down the sides)

    maybe..
    i could do for either honestly, i got the car without those plastic covers on the end. i found them at a junkyard the other week but the plastic was really decayed :c
    if i decide to upgrade to thule or yakima or st of that sort then getting rid of everything and filling in those channels underneath is what id like to do.
    i dont want that little gap left over from the stock racks

    figured out why i couldnt program the new key fob, the door switch spring was fully compressed bc the plastic pushing it was stuck on the hole.
    also, the wire came out so i got to fish it out to get it working.. crap


    also threw on the mazda hub caps
