TRD Rear Strut Tower...
Well, got my TRD Rear Strut Tower in the mail today from an eBay auction I won. The guy who sold it to me works at a Toyota parts center, and is gonna hook me up on parts if I ever need them.

Bought the tower from him, brand new in box, for $100 shipped.

Gonna install it tonight.

Anyone have any suggestions to make the install go smooth? Looks pretty straight forward to me.


Oh, and one thing...

When I drill the two holes in the bump that sticks out of the floor, is that metal bump filled completely with metal, or is it hollow in the middle?

If it is filled, then I think I will have to rent a more powerful drill because with the drill I have, it was kinda hard for me to even drill holes in my trunk.

I want to get that rear strut tower bar, but the thing is i don't know how exactly to cut the plastics in the trunk or what to use or whatever.

yeah, but what about cutting the plastic with the correct measure or what people use to cut it?

they have a template with the exact measurements you need... just print it out and stencil over the plastics - practically foolproof
