    Default Hilux Tiger - Defogger solution needed!

    Well as the title suggests, I have recently come to own another Hilux Tiger 2003 with 1KD-FTV.

    This one like the last one I had, being a Thailand model does not have a heater, which is not a big deal.
    However, I dont know why the f*** Toyota did this but there are no ventilation points for defogging the front windscreen.
    This makes driving in the rain a real problem, especially at night.

    After speaking with the chaps at New Eastern in G-7 I am really not convinced of how to go about this.
    Any ideas??

    The only solution so far suggested is to punch holes in the dash where you would normally find the defogger vents and install the necessary pipes. This however poses the problem of having to change the panel where the switches are to shift the vent direction

    Changing complete Dash should work, better option then punching holes..

    Thanks bud.
    This would mean getting a Surf dash probably as per discussions with @Demonoid.
    But the cost for this simple function of having working defoggers would end up costing a bit?
    Just the dash is for around PKR 25,000.
