Happy Saturday SiennaChat Folks !!!

June 17, 2022 marked 1 Year of the delivery of ‘Shinkansen’ !!!

Font Emblem Symbol T-shirt Crest

In such a short time, this Project has come quite a long way since it’s delivery on Day 1.

It has filled the shoes tremendously from my previous Prius Project.

I’ve met many great new friends and companies during this time. 'Shinkansen' has spent countless hours in the garage and at various shops as well.

I'm looking forward to many more great years ahead !!!

Here's a brief history of 'Shinkansen' ...

Hi finally installed everything and came out amazing!
Thanks for the information you provided.
However I came across one issue at the end.
The power trunk door when operated automatically does not close completely. It comes one inch short of closing, beeps and stops there as if there is something blocking. When I close manually it closes and latches without any issues.
I reinforced sensors on the hatch. I'll try to reinforce again later today all the stuff I removed for installation.
Any suggestions is appreciated. View attachment 56880
Check the round bump stoppers that can be adjusted... perhaps got turned during lights replacement??

Hey there SiennaChat Folks !!!

In 2017, the Toyota National Headquarters in Torrance, CA was sold and was relocated to Plano, TX.

Currently, the Torrance campus has been progressing towards redevelopment and now the entire main building has been fenced.

I’ve had many great memories there through the years and met many wonderful friends.

My last visit on Campus prior to closure ...

After the closure ... Photo taken of my Prius early 2021 with one of the building signage on Western Avenue already removed ...
