    Subwoofer in the cargo panel

    Looks great! I saw an ad on tv for $99 under-seat subs (in Aus), so went in to the shop with the intention of getting one for the 60... A pair of 6.5” Clarion hx series splits, a 5 channel Pioneer amp and a Rockford Fosgate 12” Punch sub later and I am broke!! But it sounds fantastic!!

    Overheating in traffic, anyone running an aux fan?

    I found that my temp would rise a bit when going up a hill towing my boat in hot temps - so I diverted the window washers to in-front of the radiator, and give it a 10 second squirt at the bottom of the hill - problem solved!

    12ht pyro location

    Just to add another perspective... I have my Redarc Pyro installed in the dump pipe immediately after the turbo. I know a lot of people think pre-turbo is the only way to go, but I disagree... I have seen temp graphs showing the delay in temp readings post turbo compared to pre, however mine is...

    Events/Trails Holiday road trip

    Gday guys, I have just returned from our annual family holiday to Exmouth in the North West of Western Australia, towing my 16ft boat loaded with camping gear... The car is a 1988 hj61 5speed manual with 571000kms on the engine, and a fairly new Exedy HD clutch. The car went great over the...

    Builds FJ60 12HT converted engine rebuild

    I am watching this with enthusiasm! I would be interested in hearing of the costs associated as I don’t think I am too far off a rebuild myself (at 571000km’s). Being in Aus hopefully some costs will work out a bit better (only a couple of hours away from GTurbo too...). Your rebuild with the...

    HJ61 Flasher unit

    Hi guys, my indicators are starting to play up - with them flashing slow at times, and staying on at other times instead of flashing. I have purchased a new flasher unit, but was wondering if someone could point me in the right direction as to where it is located? The car is a right hand drive...

    Can anyone identify this switch in my HJ61?

    No idea.. I have a hole in this same position that I asked on here ages ago about... My hand throttle is on the other side of the steering column..

    Best console?

    Yep - as above... For me the best centre console is one that is an arm rest, drink holder, and 10 can (give or take a few) proper compressor fridge / freezer...

    Camping with your 60/62 thread.... ready go:

    A RAV4 - with what looks like mud tyres!! We have one that looks exactly the same (minus the muddies). My wife bought it brand new in 1999. It has done 216000kms - on original clutch, second set of brake pads, and just into its third set of tyres... and has never been off road (or in a gravel...
