I did this because they were forecasting snow and I did not want to have salt and sand in my eyes. I'm recovering slowly from this nasty cold so I went under my RAV today and I removed the small bungee cord which is no longer needed because the large black rubber one does the job. It's not showing from the outside as it's on the inside of the belly pan, only the s.s. bolt head and washer show, not too ghetto anymore...Perhaps I can find a similar setup to replace the white zip tie one day then I'll post some pics.

Hee hee. Just giving you some grief as I have done much worse before.

I am a total DIY guy, and modify everything I own. However my plan with the RAV4 is to do NOTHING!!! I have way too many projects that need my attention. I even took the thing in for its first oil change. I have not had a shop do an oil change for me in...? At least for the first two year when the car is under the Toyota free service plan.

Other than swapping out the winter wheels and tires I haev yet to do any work on the car.

We are forcasted to get a big storm starting tomarrow. Might to too warm to snow though.

Here are the pics! I replaced the white zip tie with a black nylon strap with a buckle neatly tucked inside. The wide black rubber bungee cord is hooked onto what seems to be the A/C aluminium tubing.
