    Stay at Home: What are you doing to make the best of this time?

    Slowly building the little 05 GTI into a rally cross car. Lifted it with 2 inch lift springs, and Bilstein HD shock (forget series number). Installed stud conversion kit, no more lug studs which makes for easier tire changes. Was working on installing the steel skid plate today, I HATE rivnuts!!!!!

    April Monthly Meeting Cancelled

    With the pending sale of my FJ, I may no longer be allowed to attend since I will no longer own a Toyota 4X4.

    Seized Brakes of the FJ

    Ok, we'll have to work out a time to meet. My schedule is wacky to say the least, especially working closing shift. I normally have days off during the week, sometimes the occasional Friday-Saturday or Sunday/Monday.

    Seized Brakes of the FJ

    So good news, the new harness fixed it. Looking at the old harness, I can probably could have repaired it myself. Oh well, lesson learned. However there was one hiccup with the install, one of the metal tabs on the body that holds the brackets on the harness bent when I tried loosen the rusty...

    Trust me I tried to tweak the schedule so I had the day off, my GM was not pleased.

    Seized Brakes of the FJ

    Toyota’s motto for old trucks should be “Trust the rust” because I swear the FJC rear end is held together by the rust....

    Seized Brakes of the FJ

    So I found the issue with the FJC. Tore a section of the rear abs/vsc harness while off-roading... I’d like to thank my neighbor for letting me use his lift. Bought the new harness, will install this weekend. Keep you posted if that fixes it.

    Unfortunately, I’m going to have to miss this one, I’m the closing manager on duty that night.

    Still broken... I'm debating buying a Techstream ($71 on Amazon) and diagnosing it myself. Toyota wanted $2000+ to fix it.

    Rust Repair and Paint Shop Recommendations

    I go there to drool over the AMGs, he had an SLR McLaren out front one day when I was delivering him part back when I worked at Toyota.

    Rust Repair and Paint Shop Recommendations

    I recommend Village Body and Paint in Warrenton. I don't know if they do rust, but I assume so since they do frame off restoration of old exotics, sports car, and classic trucks. I've seen his work first hand, and it's award winning quality, literally some of the vehicles and planes he's worked...

    Builds I noticed a lack of build threads in here. Let's have one.

    I might be selling it for a 4Runner. Not sure yet.

    Seized Brakes of the FJ

    Turned the wheel and tried again with the breaker bar and extractor after soaking it in CRC Freeze All overnight. I’m sold on that stuff now, @davesax36

    Seized Brakes of the FJ

    Quick update, yesterday I got the FJ put back together (got the PITA caliper bolt out). Took it for a test drive into town, there’s a lot of air in the lines, so I’ll have to bleed them again. Now my big issue is that all the brake related system lights are lit up on the dash (parking brake...

    Seized Brakes of the FJ

    Yesterday morning I took the FJC to Warrenton Toyota to have the oil change done and had a few things looked at. I suspected a wheel bearing, cheap fix, but they told me both my left side calipers were seized. I figured if I'm replacing them I should upgrade them. Any recommendations? I was...
