Re: The "Say whats on your mind/Rant" thread

I actually made it into my garage yesterday.started to change out some stuff on the xb. I raised myshock mounts for the rear and I am trying to use a shorter shock to lower the rear another inch. Replaced my rear airbags with a new pair and replaced the steel braided leader lines going from the compressor to my air tank as well.

Getting ready to start mocking up the suicide rear doors and supports for the 50/50 split hood.

I'm drawing out design concepts for the fiberglass dash that I am gonna build. I am installing a 10.6 tablet ( it's being delivered today) in place of the factory cd player.

Re: The "Say whats on your mind/Rant" thread

Be safe on the drive Jeff. Installed the tablet in the dash last night. Replaced my rear airbags with new ones, replaced both leader lines and check valves. Welded plates to the top shafts of the toyota sienna Rear shocks and installed them. Was a busy night.

Picked up something new for my xb. It's currently in transit. Once I get it in I will post it here. Should be here in a couple days.

Good to know youre doing good over there Jeff!

I finally got purchased the drive side rear bumper lip, had the other side at my parents house. Put them on the car, but I think I need a few clips to finish her up.

Shes a little dirty, and the exhaust is crooked it seems. It seems to be pushed towards the drivers side making it close to the lip on the bumper lip.

The bumpers been like that for as long as I can remember. Sister had the xB and if I recall correctly, one of her friends either hit the car or backed into something and damaged it.

Need to get it painted up nicely one of these days
