I have a few hours in the early morning on weekends in South Carolina to comfortably work outside in the garage before my desire to go inside outweighs my desire to work on the Cruiser. I have a part time grad class starting later in August, but my goal is to get the interior gutted so I can get some paint quotes from a couple of local shops, and have the exterior touched up by a shop with proper tools and experience while I'm busy with school (or maybe even completely repainted to the 60 series dark blue metallic TLC#8B4?!... but I'm probably too cheap for that). I still have a lot of cleaning to do, and I'm going to try to get the rest of the foam padding out that's stuck to the LX noise insulation.
On a somewhat related note, I removed the center console years ago with the plan to build something for myself. I also took out the screws for the part of the console that covers the transmission. After several moves over the years, I have lost the screws for the shifter console and the bolts for the center console. Anybody know what size screws and bolts go there? I have the shifter console out to clean inside in the A/C but I'll put the stock unit back in after I finish cleaning out the truck. I'm planning to use the existing bolt holes to secure my future custom center console back into the truck.
Installed one of these shower awnings from Overland Vehicle Systems...man do they ship fast! I don't need it as much as my travel companion will but seems legit. I am thinking a 270º awning would be more my style. For those that have a 270º awning what do you think? Worth it? And what side did you choose to mount it on?
This is the first mod I did to my LandCruiser after receiving it in a trade (Tacoma.)
Front main seal, oil pump gasket, distributor O ring, plugs, plug wires, fan clutch, fan and drive belts. Want to get all the maintenance issues addressed first.
Now to the fun mods lol.
