    Spotted????

    Indeed. She enjoys calling out 70 series in international news footage on TV now. Let alone all the FJ40s and FJ60s in drug and everything else ads on TV now.

    Spotted????

    Hey Gary, I doubt I'll make it to Coal Mine this year. My new gig has me working 6 days a week through July; unless the project is completed early.

    55 folks weigh in on this part please

    Yes, that part is very desired by many FJ55 owners, especially in that condition. Please grab it.

    Drop/extended bumper for Maryland inspection?

    You only need to get it through inspection once. Put tiny tires on it, and it should pass, unless it is really lifted. While not "tiny", I have some 31s you could borrow. Sebastien may even have smaller tires. He used to have quite the collection. Then you just need to deal with individual LEO...

    Spotted????

    I didn't get a picture, but I saw a white SAS FJ Cruiser at 17th and I NW a few weeks ago. Then there is this thing, that parks down by Lafayette Park most days.

    Need some help with electrical switch to trigger starter

    Thanks for all the replies! It's a Toyota gear reduction starter on a 2F. I'll skip the relay. Ed, the LED switch I mentioned is a completely different switch. When you press the LED lit switch it physically presses that little green arrow thing on this switch to engage it.

    Need some help with electrical switch to trigger starter

    I could use some help from Ed and any of you who know more electrical than I do. From my best reading of the 79 FJ40 electrical wiring diagram, the starter is triggered by the ignition switch turned to the Start position, which is fed by the 15amp Engine fuse to the Black with white stripe wire...

    Yes it has. Unfortunately, it is going to be longer still. I'll raise a few Miller Lites over that weekend for a virtual cheers with you. I look forward to the pictures, and running narrative I hope you all post up during the event.

    CMCC 2018

    Unfortunately, my father in law is in ailing health, so every Saturday, and some Sundays, Laura and I have to attend to his needs. I'll make it back to wheeling one day. I hope you all have a great trip!

    Not going to make it this year. Finally got a contract job for 6 months with no time off. Nice to be employed and making some money again. If I manage to get hired as a regular employee by this company, I get a month of vacation from the start. Fingers crossed.

    Shop in Montgomery County for mounting tires?

    Radial Tire in Silver Spring mounted and balanced my 37" bias IROKs perfectly many years ago. They don't care if you buy the tires from them, they will mount and balance anything. I take all my tire work to them after that experience. I've bought a few sets of tires for cars from them over the...
