    Is it a bad thing if...

    One thing I noticed when I had my 1F on the stand is how heavy these are; there is a ton of metal in the block. It could just be that your cooling system is working well and it takes a long time to heat all that cast iron and that’s the nature of it? Also, how long is a long time and do you...

    My cruiser lean is definitely to the passenger side.

    Skreddy’s 71 Resto

    They are a locknut and the threads go just past the licking part so I think it’s good. Going to go snug them again in a couple weeks after everything settles in.

    Skreddy’s 71 Resto

    I put the tub on the chassis Tuesday. First time since 1990 it’s been bolted on. Used the energy suspension bushing kit and while it is complete, I have 2 complaints (for anyone considering it). First, the thin, rectangle pads that go on a rear support channel under the floor are held on with...

    What have you done to your Land Cruiser this week?

    This week, I put the tub back on the rolling chassis. First time the tub has been bolted to the frame since spring of 1990.

    What have you done to your Land Cruiser this week?

    I used goof off to clean the release agent first. That’s what City Racer’s instructions recommended.

    What have you done to your Land Cruiser this week?

    I’m using the 3M 08011 for mine and I’ve been having no problems. I have also just adhered 1 side and let that set up, then do the rest of the stripping a couple hours later with a chip clip in the fresh corners. Seems to help it not want to pull out of shape. In case that doesn’t make sense to...

    What’s this and any cause for concern?

    Mine came with a heater in-line in the lower hose. Hell, I’d even give it to anyone who wanted it! But I’m not convinced it works. Last plugged in sometime in the 80’s....

    What’s this and any cause for concern?

    Since the cord is cut and it’s non functional anyway, you could swap it for an actual freeze plug or one of the rubber expanding plugs (similar to what’s there). Would require draining coolant to below that hole and refill.

    Skreddy’s 71 Resto

    I guess I haven’t updated here in awhile. I’ve been getting a ton done but it all seemed small and inconsequential, but I guess I’m keeping this updated for my own future reference as much as just a spot to show what I’ve done since most of my friends don’t care... I am pretty much done...

    What have you done to your Land Cruiser this week?

    I am planning on getting my tub back on the frame early next week, now that the drivetrain is back in. Figured getting the brake lines on first would be easier, so I bent some new frame and rear axle lines today. Need to clean the unions and the hold down clips then transfer to the new lines

    Welding Body Panel Advice

    “Rust repair is not something to idly jump into, there’s more than you think and multiple ways to do it.” That’s the truth. There’s ALWAYS more than it looks like. Using something like Ospho would stop it from continuing so you could still drive and enjoy it. If you’ll replace the panels anyway...

    Is that Trollholes? I was reading his thread but none of the pics show up so I was a little sad. Showed her, she says it’s beautiful.

    That’s the one! She got it for me for Xmas.

    What have you done to your Land Cruiser this week?

    My wife and 4yo daughter made cookies for my birthday. As close to spring green as she could get. Then cadet blue, since that’s what color she wants the next one to be. And pink, because my daughter wants a pink one with purple seats and a rainbow engine. She wasn’t a fan of the plain ol black...

    Welding Body Panel Advice

    Need inside pics and up underneath also for better advice. I would replace that whole quarter panel, not just a patch. From looking at just these pics and what you’re saying, I’d replace a lot. Take a ton of measurements of everything. Then I’d start on the inside and work my way out. So, brace...

    Thoughts on pricing for 74' FJ

    Not saying that eBay ad for the 69 is suspect, but it is not difficult to make things look inflated on eBay. Especially in classic cars, people put a real high buy it now price or have a friend, employee or second account bid up the price. Then when it sells, both parties can “agree” to cancel...
