Call Vinyl pro. They make the sems color CC# 0497 that is a match to the oem grey.

As of now I'm happy with the end result but I'll keep that in mind for the future, thank you though.

I completed everything today.

premium or performance series? I have the performance series in mine, and while I love the look the accuracy and durability wasn't great. I was thinking of trying out the premium line

Premium, so far I really like these.

Love the look myself of the gauge pod. Only problem for me was it got me too much attention from kids that always wanted to race ha ha ha
I work nights and drove my all-trac to work and the lighted guages really stood out. It did make the drive to work more fun :smokes:

Hey, was wondering how you mounted your fogs. Looks like the same as I just ordered.

I bought a pair of inexpensive six LED lights off Amazon I believe. I secured them to thick scrap aluminum I had laying around that I bent to the angles I needed and then secured with galvanized screws (the holes may or may not have already been there, I don't remember).

I've had a slow oil leak coming from around the oil cooler/mount for a while that's been bugging me so I ordered all the required seals and replaced them this weekend.

Helpful tips:
To remove the coolant bypass hose next to the thermostat housing, buy one of these tools, you can thank me later. :D

Crossing my fingers for a leak free 3S, I know it's a lot to ask for but I have high hopes :)

No more leaking from the oil cooler however there's still oil coming from somewhere, at least it's one less place. . . :roll:

Anyways, back to accepting my engine is and will most likely always have a leak :|

Regarding the tool above. . There is some room for pliers at that location, these just made the job a little easier (for me at least) as they are ratcheting and lock into position. The tool has come in handy for other tight spots too, like the heater hoses.

The only way I was able to get all the leaks on my Gen2 to stop was pull the motor and completely rebuild it. Used all brand new Toyota gaskets and all the oil leaks stopped..... then the power steering pump started leaking lol.

That's what happens when you interfere with the patented Toyota Constant Rustproofing System (tm).
