Hey guys - make me an offer on these. I need them out of my garage. If someone can use them hit me up please.
Good tread, would be good trail or beater tires. I looked up the manufacture codes and it looks like they are older than I thought - probably 10+ years.
Got some new cityracer 16” rims and Yokohama’s. 255/85r16. Really happy with the new stance.
To my surprise I don’t have standard lug nuts. Wheel bolts threaded into the drums. Is this normal for early trucks? I have one for sure that is stripped out. Not sure how to handle that?
Hey guys - just took these off a 66' fj40. Drove straight and true, balanced OK. Hankook Dynapro MT 33" x 12.5r x 15 rims.
I don't know the long history, but these haven't seen much use. The spare was on the back, never rotated in and is brand new. Plenty of tread on the remainders. The...
I want to coat the inside of the doors with something....does 'mud have a good recommendation? I've been looking at the Eastwood products and they look good. I still have quite a bit of scale to work with on the inside of the doors that I'd like to neutralize.
Here is a trick that I learned from the YouTube. Instead of cutting out a patch panel and trying to butt weld, tack weld your patch right over the skin that needs to be replaced.
Then start cutting right along the edge of the patch panel but cut at a 45 degree angle and only about 6” at a...
Up next is stripping the doors down. Pretty much all of the Phillips head screws needed some extra attention from the grinder to get them to budge. I just cut slots in them with the angle grinder and worked them out with a big flat head screwdriver. Looks like my doors were spring green...
Weekend progress. Spent a lot of time with the dash holes. I’m not certain where I’m going to lay out the all the dash switches so I filled it all in. I’m still stewing on if I can fabricate stock appearing ridges.
And removed the rusted rear sill cover. The real steel sill was about 1/4” to long for my opening. Otherwise fit great.
The structural member under was really pitted but cleaned up well enough for me. This is the worst rust spot in the truck so I can’t complain 😀.
Ignore my terrible...
All tacked up
And slowly stitched my way around to finish the weld. Keep the body panels smooth.
A bit more weld and grind and that will do it. Thought I’d share as I hadn’t seen this shown here with this kind of patch panel.
Relatively simple to widen the opening with a grinder and cutting wheels. This is the only tough spot to cut out. It’s the back channel of the wheel well support.
This is the corner I’m talking about. Otherwise very simple.
My wheel wells were trashed, so I decided to order the replacement rear pieces from real steel. They arrived after about 4 weeks, great quality stuff. Only issue... the PO saws all cuts were a little wide. I like the idea of having a little wider wheel well with the stock edge
