Progress on frame and supension, with axles going in. Engine/transmission installed. Fuel and evap system lines were a pain to run. But end result was worth it.
Great looking fj60’s!
Littlebilly is right. Once its clean and fresh its so much easier to work on. When I started it back up, my power steering pump started leaking and it was a 10 minute job to get it out for inspection. I am so glad that I decided to mount the short bolt for power steering pump mounting bracket by the manifold. Saved me a ton of time. Currently researching options for PS pump. I think I'll either get one from toyota or cityracer. Please give me feedback if yall have gotten the ps pump from them.
THis was also the point where i decided I was not going to keep patching the radiator. So i got a new radiator and no more leaks. Also easy fix. THe only problem with a restoration like this is that you start doing stuff like cleaning the frame with shop rags after you drip some coolant on it. But you're ok with that or you wouldn't have done the frame off in the first place.
I went and checked on the 60 yesterday and wet sanding is in progress. I look forward to showing some updated pics .
