    The Great ONSC Gun Thread

    I'll play. :grinpimp: Top to bottom, a Dan Wesson .357 4" barrel (nightstand), S&W model 60 3" barrel (backpack), and a S&W 442 (carry). I have a Winchester Featherweight Model 70 in .270 for slaying deer, and a mid 70's Remington Wingmaster 870 for the ducks/doves/etc. I'd love to shoot...

    FJ55 Signal Lamps

    Got mine installed last night. These do have the flat base, my 1976 has the angled base. They are not an exact match obviously, but I don't think it puts the angle so severe that it looks out of place. My truck has two wires to connect to - I spliced the blue and yellow wires together, and...

    Mars Pig - 1976 FJ55

    https://forum.ih8mud.com/fj55-iron-pig-preservation-society/211723-daily-drive-71-55-build-up-4.html#post3919438 See above (not my truck) - great reference for this in Lil'John's thread. I'm going to be painting, so I'm not too worried about welding the body panels. I plan on welding a piece...

    Mars Pig - 1976 FJ55

    Planning on welding straight to the body panels. They are long enough that they should displace the weight...from what I've read.

    Mars Pig - 1976 FJ55

    Lot's been going on! Since last update, we've relocated from Vegas to Raleigh, North Carolina. It's been a great move for all of use to get out of the desert. :cool: Working on getting rid of the rust in the rocker, and decided to copy other member's 2x4 slider/rockers. Got a lot of the...

    New Pig to the area

    Oooo...one more question. I have the stock rear heater, but it leaks like a sieve. Any recommendations for a radiator shop that'd be able to re-core or repair? :cheers:

    New Pig to the area

    These pics are from just after I drove it to Vegas from Tucson. The paint is a little worse nowadays, but you get the idea. Last pic shows the only really bad rust spot, passenger rocker panel. Originally the paint was two tone blue and white, and has had one crappy paint job:

    New Pig to the area

    Well, since you asked... :grinpimp: I'm not afraid to work on my own junk, but I'm a long ways from being much of a mechanic. I'd like some other more experienced eyes and ears to look over the truck and give me some feedback about tie rod ends, birfs, a slow leak at the transmissin/t-case...

    New Pig to the area

    Hey NC folks - I am new to the area, and wanted to give a quick intro. We picked up the family and moved from Las Vegas last summer and settled in the North Raleigh area. I've got a 'close to' stock 1976 pig that I'm gradually working on - somewhat outdated thread is here...
