    My plan was to leave bolts in all the threads in the frame during sandblasting and galvanization proces. But I'm suggested to only leave them in during the sandblasting proces, and just re-thread them after they're galvanized. I think that makes kind of sense. Any thoughts? @dogfishlake @sved ??

    I decided to go with it as is. My thoughts were that taking the frame to a frame shop, and having it adjusted, might damage the metal more than the unevenness will (as the unevenness is quite little). So there's no way back now. Or in fact there is, but it's will take a lot of grinding. Next...

    FJ62, master power window switch removal

    @22590FJ62 did you check the switch or the cables? Wouldn't be the first time that causes issues.

    @Prairie Swamp yes the measurements are criss-cross measured unfortunately.

    I could really use some expert advice here. If no-one comments soon I'll continue the work and accept the measurements are off by 2/5".

    Alright everyone. Things are moving very slow, but in the right direction at least. As one of my mates gave me a really fair price on making a new front bar, I decided to have a new one produced. It's looking really good as you can see in the first picture. However when we were getting ready to...

    FJ62, master power window switch removal

    @MadMeak no unfortunately not. I soldered it so it's always un-locked. Didn't need the function that much anyway. To finish it off I glued the button on. Not a great fix, but it worked and looked good.

    rear axle full floater or not?

    @jfz80 sorry but I need more help. Can I install ARB air lockers on both my axles? If no then why not? I've been looking up information on the c-clip, and I'm not sure I'm getting it. My axles are in the pictures above from an earlier post of mine.

    @NeverGiveUpYota it looks like our cracks are in the exact same spot. Nice fix! But what would you do with the front cross bar in my case? Cut it off and make a new one similar to? I know it's not a big dent, but I'm having the frame galvanized and all. I don't need it to be perfect, but I'd...

    @Hojack om sorry that I'm awakening the hunger within! But you should really get a sandwich!! Today's work showed me some stuff repaired by the previous owner. It also showed me a crack in the frame. I think the solution will be to grind it a bit and then weld it. However with the front bar...

    @NeverGiveUpYota I reside in Denmark as well with the truck. Climate is cold during winter where we salt the roads, and hot during summer. A rust-bomb environment! If the frame was galvanized once before, will the sandblasting then tear the old layer off or what will happen/should I do/not do??

    So I am awaiting a quote from a couple of different places now. I asked them for a quote on sandblasting, galvanizing and painting the frame. What about the axles?? Does it make sense to galvanize them? I'm thinking that it's going to make it tricky to open it up later on, without cutting it...

    I clogged the intake and exhaust with some rags as suggested and cleaned it all. It sure looks clean now! Tuesday I'll call the company for a quote on sandblasting and galvanizing. Before I drop it off for sandblasting, I'll deattach the axles from the frame.

    So... Engine, transmission and transfer case is off. Frame and engine is soaking in diesel overnight. Tomorrow is washing day. I'll carry the engine out using the tractor and wash it along with the frame. I took the intake and exhaust manifold off in order to make cleaning easier. How concerned...

    @NookShneer @Hojack @dogfishlake thanks for the advice! I just spoke to my brother in law. He runs a truck company. He'll bring his diesel powered, hot water, high pressure washer this Sunday for the Easter lunch with the entire family... Which means I'll be missing two hours of the dinner. The...

    I also took the cover of the rear differential. Everything looks fine in there. I counted the teeth to make sure I wouldn't get problems with gearing when installing the ARB air lockers. The shock is there to empty itself into the same bucket as the diff.

    Mission update. While the ship I work on is in a dry dock getting a refit, I have some more time to work on my LC. Body's lifted off, and frame and engine is washed down. For now only with a high pressure washer and spray can engine cleaner. It didn't do as much as I hoped. The old grease...

    @Fitzwho anytime! @dogfishlake would you even consider replacing the metal brake fluid lines? Or are you primarily thinking of the soft ones?

    @Fitzwho it's funny how small of a world this is. Everyone's related five steps out. You should come visit Denmark again soon! And when you do, let me know; I have some parts for you to bring :-)

    @NeverGiveUpYota tell me about it! I was very afraid that something was forgotten or stuck. I had done a test-lift with a jack prior to the real lift, so I was pretty sure everything was ok. But still... o_Oo_O
