    Looks great Sean. Pretty cool to have a tool that can create something so custom. Like more than just bending and grinding some steel.

    The heating thing makes sense. Hopefully it's not a PITA to dial in.

    I am very happy with the printer. I am looking into buying a mill and lathe to do more work in aluminum, brass and steel, but the plastic will do nicely for now.

    Been awhile since I posted up here. Not much in the mods dept.

    Installed my Chinese knockoff snorkel last night. I sanded it and repainted it because the surface finish was so terrible! Came out very nice!




    Grill is a custom design, 3D printed with the LEXUS logo painted white. Really came out nice!!! I am super happy with it!


    When I was working on the air box, I noticed my heater tees were wet. Both are broken! They were replaced about 14 months ago right before we bought the truck. Mechanic must have broken them? Very lucky I noticed on a Friday. Amazon Prime got me new parts and coolant within 6 hours for not much more than what the dealer wanted. I will be changing those out tomorrow.

    Clean looking install. Was it hard to do once you got over having to drill a giant hole? I don't know anything about the 100's so I don't know if it's a totally custom install.

    Very easy. In some ways, easier than the 3rd gen safari snorkel. There is an intake tube in the fender I should have removed before drilling the hole, lesson learned. Hardest part was getting the rubber hose onto the air box. Once that was done, it was cake.

    I did not drill the A Pillar. I used some VHB tape to attach the bracket. That, along with the 5 studs through the fender, should be fine. If I need to drill the pillar at a later time, it will mean taking off the snorkel, but not the end of the world.

    Nice work, the printed grill is a very nice touch.

    Thanks!

    Hopefully I will never test it in water! I finally got it back on the road Wednesday night after finding both heater tees cracked. Mechanic who replaced the engine over tightened the hose clamps. They were just over 1 year old. I replaced with metal tees and constant tension hose clamps. Now that's done, I still need to do an oil change, tire rotation, and to reset the preload on the front wheel bearings. Someday...
