Decided to move the winch solenoid to a new spot on the Short Bus bumper to make room for another Rigid Industries LED light. The spot behind the winch is exactly the right size for the solenoids with zero room to spare. The JDM aux fan is just above it but does not touch, the bumper braces are welded in just the right spots to make it work, and the frame is just far enough back for it all to fit. The bumper was drilled and tapped for bolts.

The 4 runner switches are the right style but you will need to source some clear plastic because the lables are a sandwich of things and can't be sanded clear.

The stock button labels are clear plastic that is silk screened from the back. All of them have a green overlay and some of them also have a black mask. That was sanded off with 1200 grit sandpaper and followed up with plastic polish. The labels are from http://forum.ih8mud.com/80-series-te...gle-sheet.html - NLXTACY just cleaned up a bit. That gets printed on some card stock and superglue makes the paper translucent. I used a green silk screen paint to keep the OE color even though I use blue LEDs behind it. Without the green the color is more blue. I like the teal color and it keeps everything matching. The last step was to use vinyl to keep light showing through the paper so that was applied in reverse to the buttons. Here are the images used. The bigger one is the mask that is behind it.
Mike, you are the king of the details.

Soon, very soon.

The interior winch controls are in but there is a ghost in the machine. It likes to spool out every now and then. I think the Warn 9.5XP is different that earlier designs as the colors have changed. Had to make black white, white red, and red black for it to work. The disable switch keeps it in check until I can figure out where the stray voltage is coming from.

Here is the WARN 9.5XP wiring diagram, post #3

So that is what 200,000 spark plugs look like

They must have have 2mm gap after the wear.

Changed out the plugs, wires, cap, rotor, PCV, belts, etc.
