    What are these rubber bumpers? Even FJ40 parts?

    There are 4 of these rubber pieces in a box with other misc weatherstrip and seals I got with my 71. Does anyone know where they go? Are they even for an FJ40? There were some “add-ons” of the home made persuasion on this 40 so they could go to one of those.

    What have you done to your Land Cruiser this week?

    Yea, been really hard finding ammo. The places I’ve found that do have it usually have a 2 box limit too. One thing I found funny in the beginning of the rush on ammo, you could really tell what calibers were popular. I remember going in one store and seeing the typical 9mm, .380, .40, .45, etc...

    Why are so many of those mags empty?!

    What have you done to your Land Cruiser this week?

    Got up way too early with the 1 year old so started cleaning switches and knobs for their impending reinstall. I’m sure my wife will need to run to hobby lobby for something soon so a white and red fine top paint pen are now added to the list.

    Then this morning I took my 4 year old driving around the woods waterfall hunting. Then color!

    The frame and the entire inside of tub looks rhino lined or something. Also, the wheel wells look like they’re made of diamond plate. But it’s got that overhead tach so that 350 must be strong! Some rich parents will buy it at full price for their high school kid I’m sure.

    Primer on underside and outside of tub, as well as up under dash where it’s going to be hard to reach once upright. Seam sealer is applied to underside as well.

    Ended up not needing the pb, but it was there for moral support. Yes, good thing she was asleep but she’s seen waaaaaay worse over the years.

    Cage nuts came from McMaster-Carr; “metric aligning weld nuts”.

    If I wasn’t in the middle of my build, this would’ve already been unloaded off my trailer. Montana isn’t that far.

    Not very tired so after the wife and kids went to bed I figured I’d strip the doors apart. Pics are just of passenger side but they are both completely disassembled. They both look similar; little surface rust at the bottoms but nothing through or flaky. Even the weatherstrip was still pliable...

    I’m blasting my tub myself and it’s going well except for the weather. I need another hour or so and I’ll be completely blasted and I think ready for paint (on the tub anyhow). Hoping to get epoxy primer all on and color on the underside this weekend. In the meantime, I finished getting the new...

    Clean compressed air

    I got a cheap desiccant filter off amazon and you can stick the desiccant in the oven to dry it out. I’ve had to dry it twice now in my 4 hours of blasting constant (have enough for 2 batches so dump one out to dry out and refill with the dry batch). Each time I dry it I can tell it’s less...
