    Finished off the routing and securing of the the Cable underneath the Car.
    Connector Lugs crimped and shrink wrapped.
    Decided to fit one of those rubber covers over the Connector, so first need to pick one of those up before finishing the Connector.





    Then started with the Battery bracket.

    And I got exactly this far . . . . .





    . . . . when I pulled a female on myself, and changed my mind.

    So I scrapped it and started from scratch.

    New Frame was knocked out, and I slimmed down the O.E. Alarm Bracket.
    Idea is to have everything more or less setup like this.





    Real head scratching begins now.
    If I get it pulled of, it looks like I can get 6 mounting points in 2 different plains in.
    All of them being O.E. Mounts.

    That'll be Cool, So fingers crossed.

    Ok, So we left it the last time where I was about to do some head scratching.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Several hours of Head Scratching, Measuring, Grinding, Welding, Drilling
    and Plating later.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    TADAA !





    I lucked out on the Silver Passivating, it's close to nuts dead on the same color as Toyota O.E.

    And here it is all setup for dress rehearsal.





    Now just to get the whole bunch in the Engine bay, and finish off the Wiring.

    Bracket is installed in the Engine bay, and most of the Wiring finished .





    All the Wiring had their Connectors crimped on, and then covered with adhesive lined Heatshrink.
    Makes them Weather Proof, which hopefully translates into less issues with corrosion.





    And the Guys on the Positive side was additionally covered in Corrugated sleeving.

    Just walked back into the workshop, and it looks like a bomb went off on one of the Workbenches while I was out.

    NAILED IT !





    And the Alarm sensor even fits in it's Original location.

    Now, If you have wondered long enough what the Red Circle is about.
    Go back to Post 132 & 134 and look what changed.
    Every time I looked at the Engine bay, that little silver extension caught my attention and it irritated me.

    And just because everyone on Forums like PICs, here's another.





    The Old Dent in the Pocket Book:

    Battery : R1700
    Solenoid : R 940
    Wiring : R 350
    Lugs, Fuses
    Fuse Holders : R 150
    Shop Supplies : R360

    TOTAL : R3500

    Which is a roaring bargain, as you just can't put a price on a Drink with Ice in the middle of nowhere.

    The Car is officially secondhand now - It got stuck for it's first time.

    And no amount of swearing could get it out, so the old shovel had to earn it's keep.








    Awesome 3500 odd KM West Coast trip.

    Car gave a Constant 8Km/L on the open Road.
    Smidge of Dirt and Sand Road between Lamberts Bay and Honde Klip bay sucked down a tank of Fuel at 5,5Km/L

    Car had it's 20k Service.

    And I was even less thrilled with it, than the 10k Service.

    Air Filter Pre Service V.S. Post Service








    Your eyes is not deceiving you. I Couldn't see a difference either. But they reckon it was cleaned.

    Anyhoo, 30 seconds later with a Shop Vac and Blower.




    Yeah, Yeah, I know it doesn't look like the actual filter is any cleaner. But I'll have you know, it's a shade of Light Brown lighter.

    But in Toyota's defense, The Piping after the filter passed the finger test.


    Here is the biggy, and would have been replaced even if it was not part of the service.





    And here is why it would have been replaced even if it wasn't scheduled.
    Found 2 of those guys stuck in the filter, and another floating in the bowl.





    Damn you Toyota ! Damn you to Hell !
    I have a sneaky suspicion the Tech tried to see how big of a mess he could make of the Filter change. There was even diesel on top of the second battery.





    This took me longer than the 30 seconds it took to clean the Air Filter.





    I was very upside down smily face.

    This one I did not see coming. Brand spanking new Cabin Filter.





    And the rest of the Story.

    Andre, do I understand you correctly, you changed the filter that they replaced? So the one in the pic is the new one they put in? How many km's did it do till you took it out?

    For interest sake, check the part number and the price of the air refiner filter I got under service plan on my last service now, unlike the previous ones and yours. They have something coming, currently busy with them! http://www.4x4community.co.za/forum/...7&postcount=56

    If there is one thing I learnt from Toyota and one thing they can do well. That's make a hell of a mess. Mine is going in on Friday. I told the service guy that if I get my FT back with oil or any kind of mess. He will have a very bad weekend. Maybe even a black eye.....

    Filter is the original one. In the Pic it has 20087km on.
    If I'm not going to do the work myself on any of my vehicles, then I check everything that they are going to touch, before and after the Service.

    What I meant was, If the filter was not due for replacement under service plan, I would have done it in any case at my own cost.

    Something definitely not on the up and up with your Cabin Filter.
    Phone any Toyota parts tomorrow, and ask the guy what vehicle that part number is for.

    The windspray of oil splatter on the Chassis, from the Oil that drips on the Bashplate is a given. And is probably due for Tradition status at Toyota.

    But the Fuel Filter mess was a new one for me.

    Wind splatter right right.... lazy and don't care ja maybe that.
    The fact that they don't care about others hard earned stuff makes me loose my fluff.

    Anyhow. Have you given any thought to the extra diesel filter ?
