      Does anyone need a set of seats for a seat swap? I have some 5th gen prelude seats (2000 ish) that I had in my Hilux that I no longer need. The front 2 bolts bolt up to the mounting holes in a 3rd gen pickup/2nd gen 4runner. Rears need a...

      If you or others are interested in doing this with a LHD import (or just need help with storage in Canada) on the west coast I could potentially help; have looked into it a bit as a side gig-type item and have at least one way to do it...

      Nice cruiser!! I like that colour. Here is my 2004 Hzj105 from Oz.

      I have never been in a 100 with a sunroof, but I can tell you my head hits the ceiling in a 3rd gen pickup (i.e. my old LN106 hilux), a 4th gen 4runner with sunroof, 3rd gen 4runner with non sunroof, a current rav4 with sunroof and for non-toyota...

      You could get your own 1998 next year, plenty available out of Australia if you are ok with RHD and Australian driven, probably on the beach and through rivers... Too early to know what to do with this once it is 25, I think it is a keeper...

      What a great story! Can I call dibs for when this rig can be imported into the USA? 😂

      Hi, Do you have the AC amplifier still? How about the actuator for the fresh/recirulating air? Driver's seatbelt? Thanks!

      My intention with this is to run it for a bit this winter and re-evaluate in the spring. I'm hoping this coating will protect it well enough that it will withstand occasional winter use without deterioration. If it shows signs of deterioration...

      I have not posted on the 105 recently, mostly because the thing has been a super reliable daily driver--my primary vehicle right now. Sadly, in the aftermath of an argument with a family member I backed up -hard- into a concrete post in my...

      Where I live here in BC you can get a color matched spray can for about $35 CAD from the auto body/paint supply shop. Find that kind of shop, then detach your gas cap lid and have them scan it. Pretty reasonable cost, and then you have paint to...

      I'd love to get one when they are ready. I backdated my 2000 LC with the Lexus built-in garage door opener, but its a few revs out of date for rolling-code openers, and the converter units for inside the garage have mostly been a pain in the ass...

      Good call. Partsouq has my 105 having the same part number for the ac amplifier, and toyodiy says UZJ100 also uses the same parts number. Will see if I can track one (and any other ac electrical crossover parts) down from a 100, and also...

      I have not, so far, had any AC problems on the 105. Which is fortunate because it has been in the mid-40's here all Summer. However, I've had a number of recent problems with my AC on the 80s. It has usually turned out to be the amplifier...

      I just found this thread (and subscribed). Glad to hear you made it home OK. Last I heard you were mid-Canada somewhere. lol.. The truck looks great! Wish you could have picked it up before I visited so I could have seen it in person, but...

      Thanks. Currently this has some continental 235/85r16s. Tread wise they look a bit unusual but are near new so fine for now. My wheels could use a paint, and have a lot of wheel weights on them, so maybe the continentals are a challenge to...

      Since I got it home I have been catching up on other priorities. Haven't done much to the 105 other than wash it, clean up the interior a bit and daily it. I found a few relics from Albania; a grocery list and a few candy's. No real surprises...

      Sometimes when importing a car, I take a big roll of the dice and decide to just pick it up myself and drive it home (rather than having it transported). I had enough confidence in this truck to give it a try, so my wife and I got one-way...

      Thanks, couldn't have done it without all the info you have shared. I'm sure there will be a chance to check it out sometime, a Colorado trip is definately on our hit list. The trip was no problem, the 105 is a very nice combination of...

      I have thought about the FTE swap and read up on it quite a bit. We will see if it gets there - pretty satisfied with the 1hz so far. I dealt with the broken accelerator bracket earlier this week. I assume this might have been caused by an out...
