    Vacuum control box rebuild (pictures)

    I may be rebuilding this in my 64 fj40. I am currently about to test this part in your pictures though. I just ordered parts a few days ago to change back my floor shift to the vacuum dash shift. If I remember correctly I did see the whole part listed on SOR. Land Cruiser Vacuum Transfer Shift...

    Hey! Thanks! yeah I bought the sill and the sill cover and panels from CCOT. They were really nice over the phone too. The sill job was not too bad but very scary to cut into the back of the 40 haha. My brother lives in Denver and just bought a house there! might be coming up that way sometime...

    I dont disagree with you but its not really an economical option for me with where I am located. Most of the people/upholsterers are at least a 4hour drive and a 1 hour ferry ride 1 way. But I do like the idea of having supporting local business for sure. Easiest for me has always been do it...

    It is a really cool one! I might have questions for you in the future on my build. Especially pertaining to the 4 speed. (If I swap out the 3speed in mine). I really like how you were able to keep some of the patina. Did you have to weld in new rockers on it? its hard to tell in the photos. I...

    I came across this Fj40 on bring a trailer. I am using as kind of a visual guide for mine. I love the patina on this one too. and the color is cool. This one makes me almost want to rethink finding a original f engine for mine. I like how they painted the valve covers in the same color as the...

    I actually have the defrost ducts and the direction peices for the top too. Just have not put them back in because the heater hoses were shot and I was lazy to be honest. So no worries! Yeah If i could put somthing out of the way that would be ideal. That surplus store has some tempting deals...

    I also found a reproduction sill sticker on SOR that I bought. I thought this would be cool on mine. I found this picture on a for sale thread on mud from @navydivedoc . (I wish I had seen it before I saw the one on spector.) I keep forgetting things that I did this weekend haha.
