I forgot this still worked lmao
I'm still in the forum every day, not many of our folks still come to hang out in Mud but a few check in now and then. Still a wealth of info in here :cheers: Woody just did an update to the platform Monday and it has the feel of a social media site.

When searching for informative threads here I find using google and typing IH8MUD and whichever series I'm looking for behind then topic gives much better results than the search engine on this site. Lots of good stuff here...just have to dig back to find it.

If you getting it powder coated they will media blast it first anyway.

Mineral spirits will work well also in case you already have some on hand
Yes Sir I have some of that on hand as well I will give it a try thank you, @kjnarmyfj gave me a pointer at the last meeting about using some mineral spirits on the leather to clean the contaminants out of the leather said to go light but it'll pull them right out of the leather as well.

Anybody coming to the Land Cruiser, Lone Star Round Up, here in Mason, Texas this weekend? If so, I need to place an order for boudin!
Dang...holler at me next time you need your boudin fix. I just drove in to Pleasanton yesterday evening to begin my 2 week work hitch. Unfortunately I will have to miss both the Round Up and the monthly BSLCA meeting....

Nice, thanks for sharing Wayne. We were admiring your knife skills last night at Scott's house. Looks like a rare to the states FJ43 and I saw the two 45's in some of their social media posts some really nice rigs out there. Hope you had a great weekend

Thanks! I enjoyed making the Scotts knife. The Round Up was a good time. Here's three more pics... The FJ Company from Miami, brought a 40 with a 1FZ-Fe transplant with a 5 speed... Immaculate rig, though I'm still trying to figure out how they change the #6 spark plug...:yawn: Thanks again!
