    My wife spotted this out her window.
    IMG_1802.jpg IMG_1801.jpg IMG_1807.jpg
    Nice blacktail! It's the widest rack I have seen in out neighborhood. We have a apple tree, so we get the doe's and fawns all the time. This was rare.

    I manage to figure how to run the sequoia back window switch off the stock 89 power antenna switch. I moved it from the left nee area to above the radio. Its not hard wired yet. I need to whisper to the truck and see where it will go.
    This is the sequoia switch.
    IMG_1813.jpg
    The Red/blue wire at the bottom is the source and the up/down are up and down.

    and the 89 power antenna switch
    IMG_1814.jpg
    The Red/Green wires at the top are the source and the up/down are the up and down.

    So I just took the pig tail with the antenna switch and put the wires into the 01 sequoia plug to test.
    IMG_1812.jpg
    The wires in the photo above are not color correct. I was not able to get the correct colors.
    The switch is set above the radio and works proper. It is just set with black tape for now.

    So I went and put heat duct in in a half-wit attempt to see how it would go. It looks like the windshield defrost, center vents, and floor vents will not be a problem. Butttttt..... the outside dash vents and the glove box back will be difficult. As far as the glove box goes, I'll cut it up till it closes. The back top portion of the glove box contacts the computer.

    The outside vents and what to do with them. Should I even care? If heat is a concern, the v8 will put out plenty. Should I just block off the outside vents and move forward? Or should I try to find a smaller ducting and try to patch it together? The passenger vent has a bunch of wiring crowding the pathway. The drivers side vent has a new steering column and a larger fuse box fighting for space.

    The wiring systems steal needing integration are;

    E locker
    rear window wiper
    cab to evap canister, abs, and fuel tank wiring

    Other things to do;

    run brake lines
    run fuel lines and vents
    install a fuel fill spout.

    Maybe making a list will help, LOL
    Doesn't look like much of a list.

    I think the biggest pro for having those side vents working is for door window defrosting/defogging. I don't think the 1st gens had another specific vent for this do they? Living in the PNW, I rely on them often.

    No, but now that you mention it, I need to go digging for rigs that have separate little vents for defrost. Maybe I can make something work.

    I managed to put in some work. Its not much. The rear view mirror has now been placed. The mirror is from a lexus car. just a power and a ground. The most difficult part was fishing the wire through. I used a plastic vacuum line, tapped the wire to it jammed, it poked it, wiggled it, and so on.

    Now it has compass and auto dimming. I think they had the option for temp also, but I not going to bother.

    NEXT.....

    Cut up the inside of the glove box to fit into the computer.
    IMG_1897.jpg

    Now it closes.
    IMG_1895.jpg

    Cut up the rear window wiper interior housing to fit the dome light. Got to wire it 2 times because I did not test the dome light housing I wanted.
    IMG_1899.jpg

    Wired the cigarette lighter outlet and light. This is the Sequoia plug on the left and the 89 4runner plugs on the right, so replacing parts will be easy.
    IMG_1900.jpg

    Also got the glove box light wired up. The ground goes through the switch at the bottom, so when the glove box is opened, the light comes on.
    IMG_1901.jpg

    All of this was done today with the exception of the cutting of the back of the glove box. I need this thing to be done.

    So do you need it to be done, so you can start a new project? If not then you are going to be really board because your so used to doing all this work heh-heh, either way kudos to you for sure.

    I really just want to drive it, to hear it run, take it to the beach and stomp on it and see what it does.

    I have changed my mind regarding the rear pocket lights. Currently I have each side connected to the door on that side. I now plan on connecting them to to rear door ecu. This will allow both pocket lights to turn on with any door opening including the rear gate. I am also planning on adding 2 more near the rear pocket panels where the rear jack and storage compartment are. So when the rear seats are down, when unlocking and lowering the rear gate 4 pocket lights and 1 dome light will turn on. I was also able to begin working the fuel tank, emissions wiring out under the passenger seat.

    The Monday night lights.
    IMG_1922.jpg IMG_1921.jpg IMG_1920.jpg

    Lights come on with drivers, passengers, and rear gate unlock and open gate. 2 main dome lights front and back along with 4 cargo area lights.
    The 4 cargo lights placement is still not set. I still want to put to in the panel pockets, but we will have to see.
    It has been rewired. All the dome lights receive constant power from dome fuse. Ground from back door ecu and body ecu activate lights.
    I will be able to install a switch to turn off and on with doors closed from inside at will.

    So I was messing with the cargo lights some more. I took the stock cargo light with the built in switch and wired it up. So 5 cargo lights and 2 dome lights come on with the doors, and when the doors are closed, the new stock cargo light switch will turn on all 5 cargo lights. It was only a two way switch so I was not able to use it to turn them off completely. The 2 dome lights, like normal can be turned to door, off, and on settings.

    Doors closed, lights off.
    IMG_1928.jpg

    Stock light switched on.
    IMG_1926.jpg

    I have not given up on being able to turn off the cargo lights off completely. I will have to think on it some more.

    All the wiring I have done so far, I have butchered the stock 89 wiring harness pretty good. I did not want to use 5 pieces of wire to go 5 feet to wire in the rear wiper.

    The answer was to go and grab some fresh harness. We had a new arrival of a 88 t4r at my favorite wreaking yard. I was able to get firs crack at it, LOL and came away with a little more than just some wire. It happened to have power windows without the wings, power mirrors (broke), and it was a v6 with a five speed

    I got the doors, the interior pocket panels, the rear seats, the gray trim from the broken sun roof along with the handle, the cargo interior panels and some odds and ends.

    Anyway here is the wiring from the drivers side from the tail lights to the kick panel.
    It even had the original speaker.
    IMG_1931.jpg

    I cut off all of the tape separating the wires I needed from the ones I did not.
    Here it is as a mess.
    IMG_1932.jpg

    And this is a pick of the wires I needed to make the rear wiper circuit.
    IMG_1933.jpg
    I installed it roughly trying to verify if it would work. I could here the relay clicking but it was not working at first. I looked at the wiring diagram and realized I did not have a ground that came from the rear gate into the relay. I fished out the ground, hooked it in, but the relay still would only click.

    Guess what I had to roll up the rear window, then the wiper worked.
    Now I do have to install it permanently, but at least it works without a bunch of pieces of butchered wire.

    No, just determined. I taught myself how to read wiring diagrams. I have to put in a lot of thought to figure some things out. Its going slower than I want but some times a brake is good in moving forward.

    Laid in the new rear wiper wires, tidied them up and wrapped them. Started near the tail lights and worked my way to the wiper/window relay.
    IMG_1934.jpg
    It looks pretty good. I should take a photo of a stock 4runner to compare.
