Solid work guys.

Took a quick drive into Anza Borrego (Oriflamme Canyon to be precise) just because this truck is so much fun to drive and I had a free day. Grabbed a burrito, a couple beverages, and hit the trail.
Heading into the canyon
The trail was a bit rougher than usual, but pretty easy overall. Tried to take the "hard" line and do some flexing here and there, much to the displeasure of my dog who knows that means more delays while I take marginally interesting pictures...
This pic reminded I need to straighten the corner of the bumper which got a bit tweaked despite @woody spotting me during the 70's meet up in Utah a few months ago.
Also met up with @Mighty690 and his awesome/growing collection of 80 series trucks on the way back. Thanks for having me over, Scot.
A simple day trip, but overall a much better alternative to spending the day in an office!
Me and the Chuzaiin last week ...pretending to be in Japan in a RHD cruiser.
Well not working on but working with the cruiser. The 3B wasn't happy on some hills.
Fantic, the 3B is a great engine but it does have it's limitations.
Great looking J73 you have there!
Another lovely morning
Coldtaco, that is the same as the coldest temperature, ever recorded here in Oz!
GloBULL Warming I assume..............
I replaced the O ring on my H55s idler shaft.... I used my spare gear box too practice on .... The retaining bolt can be used too stop the shaft coming too far back and you need too be carefull not too pinch the sucker when you put it in. I held light pressure on the shaft and used a pare of multi grips to wriggle the shaft slowly in ..... The Oring is only 2mm thick and suits a 38mm shaft..I bought 3 from the local seal shop incase i had issues and ended up stranded....( can ya tell the weather sucks and im bored ?? )
That scene totally reminds me of "Fargo" the movie, towards the end.
Couple a things outa my package from Mr T.
Answering the call of the desert and a looking for more seat time in Righty, I loaded up the dog and took another day trip to Anza Borrego.
Airing down at Vallecito Creek
Posing and looking for shade in Canyon sin Nombre
Sidebar: Rubber floor mats bought through @beno got their first taste of dust
Found the end of a trail and a pretty good view toward the Jacumba/In-ko-pah mountains
So much fun, this truck.
^ Still one of my favs!
Changed oil/filer, diesel filter, ATF, t-case oil, diff's oil, and installed the rubber mats from @beno today!
Mocked up my I/C Now back to the welder
Goodies for the underside!
Acquired a complete 1HZ A/C system for a future project.
It was time to replace the FZJ73's battery. I installed a deep cycle unit. Then I realized the truck needed a name. I chose Chance, because the Cruiser got its second chance with me.
Then I noticed my garden needed more earth. I took Chance for a drive to one of my trails to dig for some. I wanted to test the new battery as well.
A few glamour shots from the trail, complete with fog.
Believe it or not, there is a lake in the background. I tried to get it in the pictures but the fog was thick.
Now my garden has some more dirt. And I am happy with the new battery.
