Linseeded Peaches this 7/4.
Been working on getting a few things done that I've needed to start/finish for a while.
Trimmed my stock front bumper yesterday for a bit more clearance. It might be a while before I get a new front bumper. Thanks @LandCruiserPhil for the suggestion.
Installed a new thin flexible 100w solar panel with a Victron Bluetooth controller. Mounted the new panel to a quarter inch piece of ABS plastic. Controller is mounted in the driver's foot well.
Finally added wiring for compressor, extra 12 volt outlet and shore power plug for the fridge. All tucked away behind the subwoofer speaker grille, which is held in place with some magnets.
You will spend half of your time on this suspension upgrade trying to remove the nut on top of the driver side front shock.

finally replaced the drivers seat bottom foam on the 80. much better!
Hi, thanks for sharing the info. I have black LX here in Tucson and it has a lot door lock issues when the truck in hot or in the sun. I have read about the motors and threads on this issue, it is an endless string of solutions.
So your solution is appealing. I have investigated wraps for the top and/or plasti-dip the top with white. My concern with the Hy-Tech is that is it removable like plastidip?
Thanks for any info and progress.
Where did you located the foam for this?
Im sure Murf would reply but I got mine from CBT parts a few months ago.
I would imagine it would be very difficult to remove. It dries like a plastic. Not as tough as Rinolining, but definitely not coming off anytime soon.
I can't say enough how much this helped with 2nd row ac vents and how quickly the inside of the truck cools off with the AC.
I do need to sand it to get rid of the texture. as I suspected the grooves collect dust like crazy.
Thank you for the reply. This is critical info. Funny thing is, I believe once I paint the top white, the locals will think I have a police squad truck that is unmarked, heh.
I received mine from the movers!
HOLY goldmember Dr. evil. what is going on with that VW van.
Ya, lol. The mover said it belonged to some rich guy... no power though. It’s mainly for shows I think. It’s a vw troopy conversion. Lol
funny, I got mine from the same place
tell us about the new to you FJ60, looks very nice!
Oh it’s not new to me, I just moved to Arizona. My company shipped it out to me! It’s an 85, needs a little more love but she’s coming along nicely. I’ve had it since last October, and I’ve been all threw it. New ome suspension, fixed the spring over axle mod to bring it back to stock, new muffler, new seats, replaced all the dash parts, cleaned it (ongoing... ) fixed the OEM electric antenna, jut trying to bring it back to stock.
Amen to that!!!
