Looking good. We see a ton of evaporators that look like that on 60's and 80's
Believe it or not, I removed the evaporator 3 years ago to give it a good cleaning after a mouse made a home inside the blower housing. The system cools like never before and smells so fresh. I'm confused why Toyota didn't accommodate a cabin air filter. I can't imagine what our desert friends deal with.

Bought my first Lx 450, triple locked, 7 pin, Dobinsons lift, prerequisite ARB, winch. ( 5th Cruiser) rejoined Upstate ( first joined in 2001 I believe) built an aluminum roof rack on Sunday and took the whole family primitive camping on Wednesday. 4wd in and out.!!! Can’t wait to catch up with old faces and meet new ones. I’m in Charlotte area but work at Oconee Nuclear station for usually two months out of the year. Hoping I can Ride through Horse pasture or something again. Jump off rock too. See y’all soon

I acquired a stout a few month back. Got it to run in about 15 min but it would take a lot to bring it back. So the plan is to put a v-8 in it and bag it with a new rear axle. I think it will make a great shop truck with shop logo on the doors keeping the patina.

40th anniversary- only thing I have done is change the injectors and drive it very very little.
Lx470 has had little done as well other than cleaning the funky seatbelts. It’s due for a timing belt.
FJ40 aka Big Gay. Changed the spring bushings and weld a new shackle hanger on. Wheeled it at the Relic Run with Duncan a few weeks back. No problem. I hadn’t driven it for over 6 months and it started right up and drove the 6 hr round trip and a full day of trails. Love that truck. Dickie Bell with no front locker though I thought it was working and my driving skills sucked.
I have other cruisers but these seem to be the ones at the top of my list, as well mine are at the bottom of the 54 cruisers at the shop currently.

My guess is noise reduction.

The Vortec airbox that was on our donor engine had something similar "inline" like that.
