I will say, driving the Lexus to and from Richmond (where the dealership was located)...about a 2-hour drive...really made me remember just how good a car the SC430 is.

No problems so far but, I've had the truck about 7 hours!

Yes, I went to the dark side and bought... a pickup truck.

But, I didn't just buy any ol' pickup truck. I still wanted a convertible.

Sounds like you've made more progress than I did. When I first started the CarPC project in the S430, I tried to reverse-engineer the touchscreen. Ended up blowing up a screen in the process. ...

This is one of those things that I've never been able to sort out. You just learn to work around it. Here's a post I made about it back in 2012.

Always cool to read your updates.

Couldn't agree more on the CarPC strategy - small steps. Get Item #1 working before going on to Item #2. And, once Item #2 is working, go back and check the...

Yup.

I "broke" the switch out of the circuit and used it to toggle a double-pole relay. One side of the relay looped back into the circuit (to perform the original function of the switch). The...

That's probably my proudest moment.

It's a little thing, considering all the other mods I did, but it just makes the video switching so slick!

We did the same trick with JohnnyCake's SC430 but,...

I love that "typo". That's a Freudian slip of epic magnitude.

I'm going to assume you meant "fiancée".

And yes, buy the car.

I'm single...and currently own 3 convertibles.

Hey, JohnnyCake,

How about an update on this.

Did you ever get your trunk to open up? How did you do it?

Inquiring minds want to know.

I (semi) joke with people and tell them that I can easily haul 6 adults - I just need 3 drivers to do it.

You should probably post an update to your thread..."4 years on"...that kind of thing.

I've never had that happen.

But, on a related note, I always love <sarcasm> when the NAV lady tells me *not* to turn - "In three quarters of a mile...continue on the current road."

On my 03, the orange light comes on at 15 miles of range.

I've driven about 20 miles beyond "Low Fuel", but I wouldn't want to push it much further than that (without a fuel can in the trunk).
