After she is up and running, I want to pull the top and fold the windshield down...
But there's no provision for holding it down on this 64 hardtop.
I think I'm going to cook up some 3D printed solution that snaps into the top of the windshield frame and provides cushion as well as a hold down feature...

Gonna have to think on it....

I broke my first windshield ('73) by trying out my rig, and the hood had no windshield hold-down feature. Did Toyota not provide a spot for the metal hook?

'Twas time for clutch, pressure plate and flywheel replacement in the LV, over the weekend. As clutch jobs go, this went better than I could've hoped. LOTS of cleaning once the trans and t-case were out. 54 years of sludge, gunk, and grime doesn't come off easily.

Had the trans/t-case out in an hour, but of course had to go after all the peripheral bits.

Once I was ready to go back in on Sunday morning, I had the trans/t-case assembly hung in and the trans jack was out from under it in 15 minutes. The alignment was spot on, which never happens.

Got my hood and fenders back from mediablast prime. The hood looks rough. I found photos from years ago where it was wrecked. Someone did a bang up job getting it Somewhat straight. I will now take it to my brother who is a veteran paint and body guy to let him work his magic. I’m still shooting for the end of June to have it all back together. Before and after.

@thecrazygreek, did 64s come factory with no hood mounted hold-downs? I’m thinking I have seen a pic or pics of 64s with them. I have a 64 that has them but they may not be stock? Please advise.

Got the windshield glass replaced today :) The :princess: was not impressed that I drove it on the highway at 65 with no windshield to the glass shop. I opened the back hatch and had a nice breeze. $258.00 Installed.

Too funny- when reading your post I had visions of a ww1 fighter pilot with big leather goggles cruising down the highway...Grats on the glass👍

Just did the front axle yesterday.
When putting everything back together I did the centering and it came close enough to call dead on so I measured again and got the same results.
With me exact measurements makes me think I have done something wrong.
Last time I did the axles was 34 years ago and the reason I did them this time was a slight oil leaking around the bottom spindle bolts so figured a seal had gave out.
When I opened them up everything looked good but put new seal and grease in.
I guess I'll give it another 34 years and take a look again.
It's not that hard a job, just messy.
