    What did you do on your 70 series today?

    I replaced the air filter, not the ideal solution and hopefully not the final one but it will work for now. Yesterday I machined a few parts for the breather and got rid of the quick fix I made earlier.

    What did you do on your 70 series today?

    Good point, I'll leave it bright. A few beers, Fusion 360, some quality time with the Cruiser in the workshop and then waiting for the parts to arrive from the laser cutting company. ;)

    What did you do on your 70 series today?

    I got a new fuel tank cover today. It seems that the sizing was quite successful. But, do I paint it black or leave it bright?

    What did you do on your 70 series today?

    I put a pair of Quick Fist clamps on the roof rack for the clearing saw. With my van I can’t get to all the forest plots but now I can go with my Cruiser.

    What did you do on your 70 series today?

    I printed a few other parts of this material and liked its matte finish. Also a good level of strength. And now my Cruiser has carbon fiber reinforced parts. 😄

    3D printed housing for light switches and sub level control. The material is Ultrafuse PET CF15. There are two switches for the work lights, a third for the auxiliary reversing lights and a fourth that has not been used yet. And there is also holder for USB-cable.

    What did you do on your 70 series today?

    I went to pick up the garnish I ordered a few weeks ago from a local Toyota dealer for the right center pillar. The previous owner had screwed a fluorescent lamp into the center pillar and I removed it. Over the weekend, I went for a few days on a road trip in the archipelago. There were 8...

    What did you do on your 70 series today?

    I took the Cruiser to a carburetor specialist for adjustment yesterday and after a few dyno runs we found more than 10 horsepower and more than 20 Nm of torque. Much more comfortable to drive and it would seem that fuel consumption dropped quite significantly. The Cruiser looks pretty pathetic...

    What did you do on your 70 series today?

    I installed a new interior light that I ordered from Odd Iron Off Road. Now you can see something in the car without a headlamp.

    What did you do on your 70 series today?

    I made a towing hitch cover with 3D printing. Or in fact, this is a test piece of the final version but still looks pretty nice.

    What did you do on your 70 series today?

    Last week, I noticed the clutch slipping when accelerating in 4th gear. I had the clutch pack ready on the shelf so now at the beginning of the summer vacation it was a good time to replace the clutch. I made a simple support for the jack to move the transmission and it worked fine. The...

    What did you do on your 70 series today?

    A small problem occurred. Also repairs made by previous owners. Now it's okay again, but the idea is to model and laser-cut the new brackets to replace the old ones which have been patched many times.

    What did you do on your 70 series today?

    I tried to remember where I ordered those door panels but I don’t get the company name in my head. Originally, I was supposed to draw the pictures and order them laser-cut, but then I found a company in Poland whose selection included finished panels (all six pieces) powder-coated so cheaply...

    Please help me identify my vehicle

    Square headlights -> 1990 or later, 125 hp refers to 1KZ engine -> KZJ70. The type plate shows which engine it originally had.

    What did you do on your 70 series today?

    Starting to be ready, the new Weber carburetor seems to work well, a clear difference from the original. 100 km test drive completed and I don't get a smile off my face. The final stage was the audio system, Kenwood player, GZ 5 ch amplifier, Rainbow Germanium compo set (active) and a 12"...

    What did you do on your 70 series today?

    Little progress on the front bumper. I thought I would put a picture of the finished and painted bumper but the pictures from the manufacturing stage are so nice. Sorry. :sorry:

    What did you do on your 70 series today?

    The car starts to pile up except for the back doors. While waiting for the rest of the parts, I started making bumpers.

    What did you do on your 70 series today?

    I started repairing the back door hinge. I drilled out the old jammed pin, now I know the dimensions of the bearing bushes so I can order a suitable one and make a new pin from tool steel. Oh yeah, while repairing the hinge, I also painted the car. 🙂

    What did you do on your 70 series today?

    Some progress, rust repairs have been done all, now I am preparing parts for filler layer spraying. Now, however, first the coating of the wheel housings with a Raptor liner. Wheel arches, lower edges of doors, etc. are to be coated with a tinted version.
