Central locking stopped working on my eBay key, according to my post above I got 8 months out of it. Replaced the battery (3V CR2032), still didn’t work so reconnected the key in beeper and did the chicken dance half dozen times. eBay key wouldn’t set programming mode so I used the original key, set to program mode and held both buttons on the eBay key.
Didn’t give the acknowledgement but is working now.
Old CR2032 still reading 2.9V so not sure if that was the problem. Guess we’ll see how long it lasts this time.

New rear brakes today. Handbrake works again.
Fiddly bloody things.

40L Engel replaces the esky. Perfect fit. Was concerned about noise because it’s right next to me head when I sleep, but I have to listen for it to know it’s running. Image
125A VSR kit from Jaycar was $150, 105AH deep cycle battery $190 from Repco, battery box $22 and fridge $1350 from BCF.

Installed the ARB recovery point scored from Marty at a very reasonable price (thanks mate!).
Wondering which side to install, but in the end the bent side won. Image

Might cut a slot in the stock scrub pan and refit it until proper bash plates come along.

Not directly Hilux, but here by extension.

The suspension lift and draw bar mod meant the tow angle for the tinnie was terrible.
After 15 years the boat trailer needed some love, did a full respray and improve off-road ability. Sits a lot more level now, much easier to reverse when you can see the back of it.

Few rust spots on the roof and passenger A pillar that needed addressing before the roof rack goes on.

Rhino rack channels are in. If you look close enough you can see some spray can spatter, but I’m not concerned, as long as the rust is contained. Image

Still debating the rhino platform vs a self made 25mm pipe + 50mm mesh steel job.
They don’t make the rhino platform in right sizes for the extra cab, but I reckon I could make it up from parts of two, assuming Rhino would sell as individual pieces.
Or just get some tube bent and weld it together.

Make one dude, easy to get so tube bent into a rectangular shape to the exact size you want. Any exhaust shop could do it. It'll be the size you want and far cheaper.
