Okay, I'm gonna try and start an IS300 tech page. Seems like ppl want it but no one else wants to or has time to do it. I only have two things on there right now, and both are originally from TEG. I tried to translate the post's conversation-like language into step by step directions to make it easier to follow. If I got something wrong please correct me. Right now the DRL and TRAC mods are up. The page is located here: http://www2.hawaii.edu/~sniimoto/is3tech.htm

Thanks for doing that...

Other things I have done are:
* put a switch to turn the heated mirrors on/off
* added a subwoofer
* moved the rear armrest to the front
* dimmed the "ECT PWR" and "TRAC" dashboard indicators.

I must have missed the post on the switch for the mirrors, I've seen the subwoofer/armrest transplant/install mod, but there is no instructions, as far as I know, written for them. I could just put the pics up. It would also help if anyone could take a pic and circle/point out the box thing for the DRL mod, etc. Pics are always helpful. Maybe I will just post the pics of the subwoofer/armrest mod.

You could also put on some aftermarket part installation instructions. If yopu want me to, when I get some parts and put it on I will email you the instructions if it's not already up there. Lemme know...heres my email

Scott, we can host your stuff here, under the Resources section. That's the kind of stuff we need, really.

GPR: Yeah that would be great. I'm trying to make a tech articles section much like the Supra guys have. The IS3 is much newer of course, and the market is (IMHO) less into mods. Hopefully you guys can prove me wrong.
One guy (TurboIS) isn't enough!!!


Tony, I offered to do something like this in the thread about the Non IS300 General Discussion forum but got no response. I guess it got lost in the rest of the post. I'd be happy to let this reside under the IS300.net address, no problem, just lemme know.

Okay, added TEG's sub/armrest mod. I was thinking of putting TEG's "Sharpie Pen Dash Light mod", but decided against recommending coloring the dashboard w/ a permanent pen. I may put it as a note though, unless someone else comes up with something better.

How about some scrap tint film instead of the permanent pen?

I was thinking of that too, but I don't wanna put anything up there until someone actually does it and finds out if it works or not.

Well Clam, I would love to put pics, but I can't...why? I don't have any. Unless ppl take pics of the mods as they do them, or before/after, whenevers during the modding, I can't put the pics. So right now it is just text and what little pics I have.
