      I'll be buying one of these soon for my '71 FJ40 build.

      I didn't get to collecting parts to rebuild my H55F this summer, but hopefully next summer I can and this is DEFINITELY on the list.

      Ok, I have one but it's not so much an OE to AFT swap as its an excellent workaround to a potentially expensive disaster: A spun transmission input shaft tip. As I've mentioned in other posts, If the clutch pilot bearing wears out and creates...

      This thread is to try and assemble, as much as possible, a list of OE (Toyota) or OEM (Aftermarket Original Equipment) parts that one can substitute for Discontinued or NLA stock parts. As many of you know, there are other OE Toyota parts still...

      Setting doors on a 60. If you're done this you know how time consuming and sometimes frustrating it can be to get everything aligned. Drill two 1/8 holes in each plate before you take the doors off. Body side of the job is pre aligned going...

      If you have wiring running up your A pillar "underneath" your headliner to an aftermarket powered mirror, taking a turn can let water that's coming in through the A pillar travel along the wire and drip from the mirror as well, so if you're...

      Not laughable at all! That's what was recommended before Roger brown was discovered. Works very well. In fact I just used a boat roller to make a front bumpstop for a friend's SAS uzj100 a week ago. Works mint in that application too.

      Ok, laugh if you must, but two or three boat trailer rollers cut to desired length with a bandsaw will do the trick for about $30-$40. Just find them online and try to match up the hole size. These are usually rubber, but poly may be out there...

      Spook50 replied to the thread Heater/ac blower motor question.
      I'm leaning more towards that's another 4 Seasons blower, BUT the fact that an extra $30 they claim they'll send you a Japan-made Denso part makes me curious. The skeptical side of me wants to scream "BULLSH*T!", but CruiserParts has a good...

      An update, but another hangup. With the weather cooling off again for the first time since completely restoring both my current and my old fuel gauge that I kept as a spare, I notice that in the mornings when the temp is blow about 65º F, the...

      If the holes are gone.... I snip the pins off and use 3M VHB double sided tape. WORKS GREAT! Jason TT

      Well finally started this today. Sitting on rolling scaffolding was nice .Used a 1/4 in cold chisel a little bit. However I found a cheap set of angled picks from northern tools. Four picks for 10.00.These worked the best almost no damage to the...

      The Rustoleum Professional works really well when cut 45-50% with paint thinner. The local Wesco will do custom colors in rattle cans. If they can mix Rustoleum (I know they're gonna laugh at me if I even say Rustoleum in there LOL) in the ratio...

      I would have never thought to brush on paint but why not. I brushed on the POR 15 paint on my chassis and it self levels and looks nice.

      @ToyotaMatt is a good source for new yellow zinc hardware. He sent me some a while back that's come in handy quite a few times. Believe it or not this paint was actually rolled & brushed on. I gotta say I'm impressed with the results given what I...

      I gave it as much time as I could to let the paint cure as much as possible, gave the hardware a thorough cleaning in some mineral spirits in my ultrasonic (it's all so beat up that while the grease and dirt cleaned away, they don't look all...

      Oh yeah I avoid flux core unless absolutely needed like welding outside in wind, and I still will never use it on sheet metal. Good way to have yourself hating life with all the cleanup.

      Spook50 replied to the thread Glow indicator for diesel swap.
      You'd think I would remember that given I had read the whole thread in process. Don't mind me, it was a sleepless night.. ... 🙄 I do wanna get a 4WD light like what you made and a CEL if you decide to do those up too. Looks way better than the...

      You'll have to do something for the 62 crowd also. These are slick!

      Spook50 reacted to LA Z's post in the thread Glow indicator for diesel swap with Like Like.
      I've made some replacement lenses for the 60s cluster, that would replace the CHOKE indicator with the one for GLOW. And of course the 4WD I got a couple extra lenses up for grabs I did sandblast one of the 4WD lens to see how it would...

      yes, you need to replace both as they are different.

      Circling back to the first of two steps Im taking to insure the Hvac blower is pulling in debris free air for the rest of its life. 1) adding screens to the vents under the windshield. I have attached a few pictures. I chose an expanded...

      Once I can get the brackets to my buddy to be powder coated, my new front seats will be finished. Problem is that the seats I'm using have a side trim piece that if I want to use the OEM receiver I will have to cut the trim to accommodate it. I...

      Not only does Seat Belt Planet have excellent products, their customer service is beyond outstanding. I purchased replacement front seat belts for my 1983 FJ60, and 2 years later got around to installing them. Weirdly, my floor plan is shaped...

      The painting began yesterday. I'm doing a combination of rolling and brushing (rolling the large areas and brushing for the details and contours). I'm using a 4" foam roller for that portion, which is mainly the exterior side. The interior side...
