    Landcruiser specialist on the east coast?

    Also have what I think are all the parts for a disc brake conversion, which I am also considering at some point in the future. Anyone done one? Thanks.

    Landcruiser specialist on the east coast?

    Thanks for the advice. I will look into both Iron Pig and OTRAMM. The rig will be stored in Floyd VA (SWVA, not far from Roanoke and Blacksburg) I think the Saginaw is still the way to go right? I want to have the power steering done, replace the front bumper with something more stock that...

    Landcruiser specialist on the east coast?

    Perhaps the wrong forum, please move if this is more appropriate somewhere else. I was going to have Mudrack do the power steering mod on on 73 this spring, but he is backed up multiple months and I am unfortunately move back to the east coast probably before he can get to it. It’s a bummer...

    Very helpful. If anyone has a photo that would be appreciated. Need to reword these before powder coating, and would love to see where the originals are positioned.

    OEM soft top box question

    I picked up a soft top bow set that was mostly complete with the exception of the horizontal bars. So I ordered just the two bars from an eBay vendor, but I believe his aftermarket setup is a bit different from oem, specifically I believe the Mounting point that the center roof bow connects to...

    Hard top restoration.

    Thats great advice, thanks. I think I am going to just drive it to a boat yard and ask some questions. The truck usually gets some attention.

    Hard top restoration.

    Diving back into it - I have a bunch of questions. 1) The truck is in SF, which has many boatyards. So I am not opposed to getting it re-gelcoated. Is this overkill? If I get it gel coated will I need to remove the fiberglass from the rain gutter? 2) If I do not go that route is it safe to...

    Hard top restoration.

    Had to pause this project but kicking it off again next week. If anyone has any new learnings to add please do, otherwise I will share pics as I proceed.

    Hard top restoration.

    Sounds in line with my thinking. I want to deal with the rust before I have to replace the rain gutter. Or at least delay the replacement. Thanks for the advice.

    OEM roll bar mounting hardware and location

    Does anyone have photos of the bracket, or a source to buy them?

    OEM roll bar mounting hardware and location

    Mine has short jump seats, I suspect those went in when the quarters were replaced. They also seem to be forward, maybe to make room for the speakers.
