Maybe if you make the inner part of the doors where they butt together angled as well it will open easier? Basically so one door is in front of the other.

Today had some ups and downs.
78270

I removed the logo only to find out the last owner repainted the hatch. So now I'll paint the logo back and put it back.
78271

My son and I also installed a TRD emblem on the grill.
I also found out that my driver side window motor is giving out. It stopped halfway today. I checked the fuses and they were fine. An hour later it worked.

I'm on my own with mods, lol. Kids don't care, grandkids too young....all girls so not really expecting them to either.

The dead pedal is footrest left of clutch. Looks like pedal but does nothing. Guessing that is how the name came about.

Diggin the emblem - might be copying that, lol.

I spy another easy mod for you to do together.......bumper fogs. You can find some on ebay fairly inexspensively that come with lights and factory type switch that fits in lower dash blank. You can get clear, smoked or yellow. The wiring is already in place and connectors can be found inside bumper on each side and switch plug is in lower dash harness area taped to other wiring. Just pop out bumper plates and lower dash blank and plug n play happens. I wanted clear when off but yellow when on so I got clears and put 3000k led bulbs in them (which are yellow when on) and scored the actual oem switch on junkyard trip. The ebay one was fine though and looks the same.

To be fair I would still be as into this even if my boy didn't care lol. It's just better for me that I have a partner in crime.
I like the fog light mod, I'll start looking into that. Thanks!

Up front is oem sway bar...just replacing bushings/endlinks. Rear sway bar I went with is Progressive 22mm bar. Just bolts to trailing link on both sides and has no bushings to worry about. Only one I've found for rear, didn't feel the need to change front one...............

Oh yeah, forgot about little experiment in progress..........xA / 2nd gen xB rear wiper arm. IMO, a little cleaner looking but wipes about 2" lower at top of arc due to shorter arm. If you look close in pic you can see difference in the dust towards left side of window. Blade is still same length. Trying it out to see if I stay with it or go back to 1st gen setup.......

yeah, it rains pretty often here so it is needed. the one on it was touching the glass and starting to scratch it. tried to file inside of arm down so it wouldn't but no luck. ordered this one by accident and just gave it a shot. i do have another correct one on the way but may just leave the xA one on there.

Blacked out the logo

Rear bumper guard. And blacked out the xB logo. I need to figure out how to remove the scion logo in the back so black that out.
