    I know I'm new, a complete noob, and didn't make it to dinner Wednesday (damn grad school) but would love to come just to observe/soak up info.

    We'd need the truck for C&T. It isn't a one day job. Unless you just want to set to a specific angle...

    Beer drinking is a given.

    was looking at setting a specific angle, and tacking.

    I just need some "progress" to show the wife, to get out for the day. :)

    I'm contemplating attempting to remove the rusty c-channels in the back of the the frame of the FJ62. Grind off some rivets. Can't think of anything I would need other than a grinder and some hammering tools.

    Good quality right angle drill & air chisel to cut off the rivet heads and punch them out (and really good hearing protection).
    I did this job a couple of years ago while I had the gas tank removed. I used a combination of grinding, drilling, the air chisel and a lot of cussing. I think I used the air chisel more than anything else.

    You will also need hardware to replace the rivets for the spring hangers and the body bracket mounts.

    I wish I could tell you that it was straightforward but that job was huge PIA:bang:

    Well, screw that for a tech day. Vince was just emailing me something along the same lines. Too big of a job.

    Would love to tackle a knuckle rebuild in the next 6 months if you guys are up for teaching this newb. Beers, pizza, and grease all around.

    Looking forward to meeting you all.

    Don't set your expectations too high.
