    Picked her up from Legend 4x4 today. Nick took care of installing the new seat covers I bought from @aatlasx about 10 years ago. We put all new foam in too. They look and feel great. Drove around a bunch in the Salt Lake heat and was disappointed to find that I still have a stalling issue at...

    I got TEQ! The horseless carriage sticker will be replaced with a TEQ sticker.

    What have you done to your Land Cruiser this week?

    Gave Uglina a wax Saturday. She shines up nicely and is looks GREAT at 10 feet (before she looked great at 20 feet). At least now she's better protected from the elements. Also, before and after:

    Flag me down if you see me! Always willing to shoot the sh*t about these rigs. Do you have a thread going for your rig?

    Went to the auto parts store yesterday to get some supplies to fix the rust bubble that's forming on the passenger door. Made a friend. '83 that's been owned by "Kenny" since '95. Fun seeing all the upgrades that happened post '78...

    Gave Uglina a wax yesterday. I used Mothers Cleaner Wax. If I were in Washington with all my detailing tools I'd have used a better paintwork cleanser, claybar, and my go-to wax (One Grand Blitz), but here in Utah and the Apartment my choices are limited. I suspect Jack hadn't waxed the rig in...

    Clusters, Gauges, Speedo & Odo meters

    Forgive me if this is covered in this thread already but I read all 31 pages and didn't find the answer. I have a '78 FJ40. My speedo and odometer work fine, but the rest of the cluster has much patina. I have a line on a NOS '79 Kph cluster with the 50/50 amp gauge. I'd like to know if the...

    Fun going through all the crap I bought but never put on. For some reason I purchased two sets of stickers & plates... This is really the tip of the iceburg... Did my first 'fix' tonight. Fix dash lights (switch is going bad; a cleaning helped but I'm going to replace it, if I can...

    True story: I've had the ih8mud, SOR, and CCOT shortcuts in my browser toolbar for the last 7 years. I knew I'd be back.

    She's here! I had a hell day. Started with landing SLC and my phone blowing up with text messages that my car (Q7), which I'd parked in the work parking lot over the weekend, had a smashed passenger window. I was able to get a glass guy lined up and by 2pm it was all repaired. Then I had...

    Which Year 200 to Buy

    Is radar cruise on all 16+ rigs? Can it be turned off (it can't be in a lot of modern cars)?

    While we're waiting for it to arrive in Utah, here's a little BMW E28 pron for you all. I've def learned a ton about working on cars since I started this thread in 2006. This is Minerva. It is a 1985 BMW 528i (Euro) that I'm building from a bare chassis. Into it is going an S54 motor (from a...

    Well, well, well.... 6 years later (today): Uglina is coming home! Well, sorta as home as far as she's concerned is Sandy, UT, where I now work. She should arrive Monday and I can't wait to have her back.

    Awesome! Glad to hear you are well and that Uglina is too. Ok :-) In the middle of converting the red car to euro bumpers. Here's some progress photos: Old (US) rear panel coming off: "New" euro frame rail ends/tow hooks test fit. I'm using new OE parts for almost everything, but these...

    Hi all. I still miss Uglina. I've been trying to get ahold of the guy who bought it from me but he's apparently fallen off the face of the earth. I've been enjoying the past few years focused on E28 BMWs. I now own two of them. Vlad is an Zinnoberrot 1987 535is that my son and I built a new...
