    I was looking at the radio area tonight. I ordered this brand new pioneer radio about 12 years ago, talk about putting the cart ahead of the horse! Never even opened. Most, if not all radios, have a standard 2 1/8” x 7” opening, like the pic on the scrap 79 dash, with that insert. The...

    If any of our overseas friends have their eye on the ash tray assembly from an HJ47…I’m in need of one. I need the ash tray and the assembly it slides into, like the pic. Matt.

    Managed to get an hour or so in tonight. Welded up the spot welds on windshield brackets, drilled a 1/4” hole, cleaned them up and painted. Using the 79 firewall I have I measured off the dash holes and references where the brackets were. After marking, drilled and tapped with 6mm x 1.00...

    I have, it doesn't look like something that can be done, at least not easily.

    What would you need from me? I can send you the entire tach. Would you be able to mold up the back side as well?

    2 of 2 Few other miscellaneous pics. Windshield dash bracket. Aqualu sent an aluminum bracket that mounts the dash Not really doing it for me. I’m thinking I could drill out the factory dash bracket, weld the holes shut and bolt that stock bracket to the dash. At least that’s my...

    1 of 2 Few hours today. I had reached out to aqualu a few weeks about installing the stock dash pad. I had looked at customer rigs on their website and didn’t see any installed. When I reach out to Rene at aqualu he wasn’t aware of anyway to do that, he mentioned that even ICon doesn’t...

    I’ve had some days this last week I could have been working on the hj47. But I’ve been feeling a a bit under the weather. Not sure if I picked up some rona or not, seem to be working thru it. I made an attempt to do some work today, although I only lasted about an hour. I managed to cut...

    I've got my hash pipe.....

    Got in a few hours today. Almost all of it cutting holes in the dash. Said it before, extremely time consuming cutting and finishing aluminum. Once the holes were cut started fitting the center console. I had to make some slight modifications to the back of the console. It was...

    Had some back and forth with the Netherlands connection last night on fb. Mostly about the current geo political climate we live in. Somewhere buried in that conversation he explained to me that older landcruisers are few and far between. Europe in their ultimate wisdom has made it...

    Anti seize, paint and rubber between items where I can. I’m going to pass on the back up camera. Maybe 10 years ago I may have done something like that, but right now I have to pass. With my wife and the age my kids are at time is tough to come by. I just want to do a good job, keep it...

    Not a whole lot to report. Spent a couple hours in the shop tonight, mostly thinking. I stopped by an Office Depot today and had them copy my tag board dash templates. They used a tag board as well, I had to cut them up and I didn’t want to use my original, in case I needed for some...

    I am tapping directly into the aluminum. That being said most bolts will get a washer and nyloc on the back side too. On the tub aqualu has welded an additional 3/16” backing plate fairly large in those mount areas, so the aluminum is 3/8” thick that area. The area below the doors is a...

    Nothing special, managed to get about an hour or so in tonight. Got the rear tire carrier mounted. Found an old thread on mud with some very specific dimension. I didn’t take very good pics of the process, but using those dimensions and measuring off the door opening. I scribed some...

    Didn’t really have time to do anything tonight, but had a few minutes to look. Blue firewall pics I stole off the internet, RHD troopy. Tan firewall pics were taken of a LHD troopy, from my buddy in the Netherlands. Main difference is the location of the main wiring harness where it...

    2 of 2 Had a little back and forth with my troopy Netherlands connection on the Facebook this afternoon. He was able to take a pic of his accelerator pedal on his factory left hand drive unit. His steering flange thru the firewall is different than mine, but the concept is the same. I...

    1 of 2 Managed to get a few hours in today. Doesn’t look like much, cutting and grinding aluminum takes time. Probably doesn’t help I go fairly slow because I don’t own or know how to TIG weld aluminum, although I have been looking at TIG welders in case I need to learn and use one...

    2 of 2 Dug out the throttle cable assembly. Pics of the stock right drive set up and the left hand drive set up I got from my Netherlands connection over 10 years ago. The rhd set up was shorter and a solid cable housing. The pedal assembly was different as well. Pic of the LHD pedal...
