    What's originally painted pewter on an fj40?

    I've seen the fuel separator or vapor recovery thingy cover that was body color and pewter. Must be different for different years?

    I tapped the tabs with a rubber mallet "lightly" to bend them in a little, then a little dab of grease on the tabs. You kinda get a feel for it.

    Starting Issues click. click. click.
