Managed to find a black cloth arm rest cushion. I wasn't sure if I would be able to find one, or if Toyota/Lexus even made them. Got lucky, grabbed it cheap.

I now have everything I need for a complete black cloth interior besides front seats. Later I'll pick up a fixed back driver and reclineable passenger seat. Then I can put a cage in and everything will match.

Rey is THE man. He has helped me on more than one occasion and I can't thank him enough! Now to get these bushings out, powder coat, and press Figs bushings in.

Figs has also been a big help for me. Thought I'd support him some more so I grabbed a couple shirts, Poly steering rack bushings, and Poly #2 LCA bushings.

So I know I've seen this before, but hadn't really thought about it until now. I kinda really want an OEM push button start. Everything I have seen says that it is NOT TRD, but actually just an OEM option. I know Chado has it but that's the only one I've seen. I've let a couple people know I'm looking for one so if anyone has any leads let me know.

And yes, I am aware there is one on eBay. It's missing a harness and the backing was broken in half and glued back together. No thanks, the original setup is plug and play.

Still haven't sold my kit, which means no progress on my wheels I did pick up a pair of used tires for $20 that should last a couple months. Still need tie rods but I'll get them eventually.
