This makes me so happy! Thanks for sharing!
I use our local dealer, they're pretty familiar with Monteros because there are still so many of us here. Partsouq.com is my #2 and what I use for rare parts, not sure who SONICMASD uses.Who have you been using as your source of original Mitsubishi parts? Most of my sources have started to go away in the last 5 years.
Ahhh yes, the Hilux; that was a real Toasty Special. AKA spending a ton of time and money building something amazing and then sell it right after finishing it. I'm not complaining though, as you know, that's how I got Black BettyZUK did the diffs on my Hilux, he's a great dude and a wealth of knowledge. Plus when you go to his house you can stop at China Magic Noodle!
We have a 2004 that I bought for my daughter to drive, and it has the lame looking all blue color. It reminds me of some old nentindo game boy lol. I like the more colorful version as well.4/14/19: Here's another quick and easy mod I did a few months ago. For some reason, later years of the Gen3 got a different computer screen than earlier years. I'm not sure if the change happened in 2004 or 2005 but I do know that 2001-2003 screen were full color with a nice bright red compass rose icon. But in this 2005 the screen was almost monochromatic and dominated by blues:

I managed to score one from a junkyard donor and swap it into Yoshi. Don't be alarmed if after you install a new computer the mileage to empty is just dashes, it'll display after a little driving:

You can even tell the difference between the early and later computer screen colors even when they are off, look how blue the later ones are:
