Since the address for this blog changed, the TKJ-mobile needed to be updated to reflect that. Also, the liftgate handle had broken off. This is a common problem with Scion xB’s. It happened to both of ours, and we have seen a number in the area held on by duct tape. The car outlasts the plastic. So, I grabbed the handiest scrap that was the right size. It happened to be zebra wood. And made and installed a new liftgate handle. It holds the license plate lights and the gate latch release switch. I think it’s kind of cool. Now I have to make one for Bethann’s car.
I placed the bird graphic with the QR code to the corresponding article next to it, on the rear of the car. There are three crown logos. Two are huge. They are cut out and on the front doors. The third is on the liftgate. The fender QR codes were replaced with the new site as was the front banner.
I was told that the fact that I designed and made and installed this handle myself qualifies me as a member of COGs. You have no idea how this makes me feel. I will explain more about COGs later.
