    Importing from Canada to the US back in the day?

    Do any of the more seasoned members of this community know if it was common or even legal back in the 1970's to buy a vehicle in Canada and import it? There's a '78 FJ45 on BAT, and the story with it is that the original owner bought it new. It's now in Virginia but titled in New Hampshire. I...

    '78 FJ45

    The temp sender is naked, so that checks out. It's pretty clearly a white with green or blue stripe though. I'll pull the wire off the back of the temp gauge and ohm it out next time I'm in the shop.

    '78 FJ45

    I’m hopeful for some help solving a little wiring mystery. I had this white with green or blue stripe poking through the firewall next to the choke cable. Stripped and looking a little toasted. Here I’m holding it at the radio opening. The only white with green I see on the @Coolerman diagram...

    '78 FJ45

    You know, it does look like it's the right length of you split it in the right place. I think the two segments are different circumferences though. … but it’s labeled and invoiced as upper. The Toyota part from CCOT is more expensive but I bet it fits.

    Sheet metal? Wow, you're fancy. The PO who built my half-cab parts truck used plywood. Looks great! : )

    '78 FJ45

    I got the FJ45 running this morning. It was missing a fusible link powering the ammeter circuit, and the 10A engine fuse. I filled the carb bowl and plugged the fuel hoses into a boat tank, and it fired on the first revolution. It's now called Ichiro. Japanese by way of Seattle.

    Anybody have a set of 40 side mirrors on the shelf they're willing to part with? I threw out the ATV mirrors that were duct taped to my new 45. btw and unrelated, I had a JDM truck titling question and reached out to Jesse at Austin JDM. He answered the phone and was a nice and super helpful...

    I learned this year that plasma torches have consumables. I was laughed at.
