Keep your Switch Pro's dry!!! Mason just fried his by washing the engine bay with a garden hose, failure mode was all his lights came on and would not turn off without disconnecting the switch pro from the battery. Its recommended to mount them horizontally so this does not happen.

One benefit to my "old school" bussmann RFRM setup. Nothing to mess up with water, just relays and fuses.

Did this with my National Luna Smart Solenoid last year. And it says mount in the vertical position. I still haven't remounted it. Just quit washing it. I did take the new housing apart to replace the circuit board and then siliconed everything back together just in case. I'll probably just move it into the cabin eventually. If I can find space.

Its been in his engine bay for a few days, still no bueno. He just bought another. He bought it used just over 2 years ago so they weren't much help with warranty or troubleshooting.

There's an idea! SOS has a kit out for the rear with stoptechs. $1850 though! My brother has been looking at doing a Wilwood parking brake swap though.

Re: Iconic's Partial To Blue Build

Update!

Found time to go to the shop and weld my TRD exhaust real quick. The piping was actually rattling against its own metal hanger causing a heck of a noise idling thru drive thru's etc... This will work until I get an AFE catback someday. Don't ask me why the rubber isolator keeps pulling further back. I have no idea...

Wilwoods are still good

I transferred a virus to my FJ from my parent's Sequoia. Ok no not really but it seems like it. Their '05 Sequoia has intermittent lights popping up on the dash from a wheel speed sensor or something for the past 5 years or so. I finally plugged my scangauge in see the code but nothing popped up at the time. So I plugged it back into my FJ. The next day my FJ had lights on the dash!!! I'm pretty sure I did not plug the SG in all the way though. So I plugged it in fully and the lights went away. But again today, my speedometer stopped working for a few seconds and lights popped back up. So I unplugged it for good this time, lights eventually went away, and we'll see what happens now. Code "P0500 Vehicle Speed Sensor Malfunction" is one of the codes I saw.

And drum roll................ I've been an FJ owner for 4 years as of yesterday!! Been driving it, sometimes off and on, for about 10 years though haha.

Best I can 'figure, the motor is pulling the exhaust forward.

Re: Iconic's Partial To Blue Build

So after all the fabrication projects on my FJ (rear bumper, looking at you), there was alot of metal dust everywhere. Unfortunately it remained stuck to the plastics. Its been this way for about a year and a half. I finally decided to give one of the iron removal products a try. It worked on a test spot I did so I'm gonna try the rest this weekend. Very hot and humid today so I'm lazy.

Interesting background...

More iron

Iron removed from the left side test spot. Still a little on the right.

My rear diff has a bunch built up on it, might swap that out someday.
