    Aussie HJ45

    Looks like I have a new project. Just picked up this 1979 HJ45 with original 75000klms on her. She is completely rust free and still has the original H engine fitted. Not really sure on the plans for her at this point in time. Part of me says to trick her up with a 12HT, power steer, 5...

    Well time to start a file to share for my BJ42 LX rebuild. I have started to pull a few of the panels off already and preparing them for painting. Roof has come off and has been sanded down.

    Toyota PTO

    Can anyone tell me if this is a factory front/rear output PTO. I know that it is definitely Toyota as it is stamped. I have been doing a bit of reading and from what I can tell the front and rear output PTO's are not that common.

    Started work on the first template for a drivers side snorkel today. Came up pretty good. Just got to find someone who can now replicate it out of plastic to look like the original one on the passenger side.
