    Nope, back to the drawing board with some new brake line fabrication I think... maybe i will try to make a steel line off the tee that has a 9mm male on one side with a 10mm male on the other side... I think that should work.

    HUGE "plonk" at the expansion seam of the Hayden Aquaeduct bridge :eek: - even though there's not a substantial bump

    granted, Michael rode the right lane in our 80, I was on the left lane - speed was 75mph

    vehicle has >174K miles, judging by Lexus records, the shock was original - dealer service advisor said he has never seen or heard of anything like this

    Got one of the new steel lines routed to the calliper yesterday. I was able to make the line with the original 9mm and new 10mm fitting. 1518978995020976723211.jpg

    Congrats!

    I hit 150k right as we pulled into the Petro station in Kingman. Forgot to snap a pic.

    I finished up version 1.0 of mounting plate for the back of my 100 series. I wanted to mount my Puma compressor similar to the way I had it mounted previously in my 80, with quick release clevis pins. I also wanted some additional tie down points.

    I used the carpet as a starting template for 1/2 inch Baltic Birch plywood. Made some adjustments, routed the edges, and managed to get the holes lined up for the third row seat mounting points. All of the tie down points are attached through the plywood to the body using existing holes.

    Pretty happy with the results so far. Definitely have some plans for future modifications. It worked great on the Mojave road trip, and with the second row removed was able to sleep comfortably in the truck using my Exped mat every night with minimal fuss.

    And here's Graham giving me a hand putting the second row back in after I got home from the trip.

    On the February ROTM, Ham radio use was heavy and there was some discussion about getting the Amateur Radio license plates with our call signs.

    Not wanting to give up my STABWEL personalized license plate, I sought out another option. Only $5 on Amazon.
