    ABS sensor delete at the knuckle

    I honestly have zero clue if this is useful or not but I had a customer switching to part-time and he’s deleting the ABS and asked about a block off for the ABS plug. Probably don’t need to go too nuts but figured I’d see what you folks thought before I shelve it in a box somewhere. :flipoff2:

I already make the kit for the 80 Series: Bushing Press Tool- KIT but now I've committed to make the tools and kit...

    OBA...blender?

    Making stupid, silly things is important to balancing the seriousness of all of the other stuff I do. I know this will end up too expensive for most people but I had to have one. So why not make more? Since I have devoted to much to OnBoardAir and I’ve covered pretty much everything A-Z, I...

    Bringing rearview mirror into 21st century

    Originally I didn’t think I was going to make a mirror arm for the 40Series but one mysteriously showed up at my door. Turns out not to be too difficult to modify the design to get it to work with a universal mirror like the Gentex. Btw, this one happens to fit 77-84 FJ-40s

    Wits’ End wasting time again but making ashtray less useless

    Ive vacillated long enough. Had this in my head for too long and figured I at least start the project. This will replaced the ashtray on the later 80s but I’ll be doing ok for the early dash as well. Likely the same time. Keep in mind the location but what would you like to see in that...

    Dash bezel machined replacement

    @Dynosoar came by last week to pick up some stuff and to drop off something he needed made. It was a throttle cable bezel for the dash. The original one is stamped steel which is then chromed. But it was in bad shape. It was thrown into an optical comparator to get the basic profile without...

    Wits' End Stud Tool Kit

    I've been debating even making this but I think there could be a need. I'm really on the fence on this thing. It all started because of this thread: RTH: stuck in Primm, wheel lugs sheered off All 6 wheel studs snapped while driving on the frwy coming home from Las Vegas at 60MPH. I was stuck...

    1FZ-FE coolant flow and planning

    I am starting this thread in order to make life easier for a few folks. I will be posting diagrams up here so that they can be used as reference but also because it helps to detail what hoses and how many clamps and what if you re-route and what if, what if. I will try and detail what I can...

    Wits' End 80 Series Clamshell Upgrade

    Blame @LS1FJ40 for one too many knees slamming into it. I'm starting with the 60s because I'm selfish and I want one for my 60 first before I adjust and make one for the 80s as well :flipoff2: This is going to be a steel replacement for the plastic steering column clamshell. I am planning on...

    Even more 60 Series love...Wits' End Clamshell Upgrade

    This project started in the 80 Series side because a buddy broke his clamshell after one too many knees slamming into it. I'm starting with the 60s because I'm selfish and I want one for my 60 first before I adjust and make one for the 80s as well :flipoff2: This is going to be a steel...

    Wits’ End Gentex Mirror ARM

    I was going to wait until I had a prototype in hand but I’ve been getting more and more excited about this. This falls squarely in the “I’m making this for me...oh wait, maybe others might like it” category. I carry a Gentex mirror block adapter but I never installed one myself because I never...

    Wits' End 60 Series Fire Extinguisher Mount

    While I'm at it, and doing the 60 Series GloveBox AND the 100 Series FEM, I figured I might as well get the 6x series Fire Extinguisher Mount going as well. I've been sitting on this forever and its just time to get these made. Here is where things started. But the main issue was that it was...

    Wits’ End Fire Extinguisher Mount and Locking Lid

    This is something I started and stopped and started and stopped for going on two years now. Well I finally got to the point where I can make it happen. I’ll be bundling this with other projects to make sure it gets completed in a timely manner. For those familiar with the 80 Series already know...
