Best mod you you can do... bought one! BJ42. So happy to have another 40. Didn’t think I liked the mustard but it’s slowly growing on me.

Nice one, that thread is great! Definitely convinced me to keep it this colour.
If I had your truck I’d not change one thing... well except for p/s... an 80 series booster... but not the colour. :D

Im also fond of the no-draft window and kick out window combo. What market is it from? The US market doors of that year don’t normally have those no-draft windows.

The steering wheel is also on the wrong side... Australia?

Looks like an Aussie spec truck to me

Yep that’s right, Aussie truck. I had a 1978 which didn’t have the extra panel on the front windows, so I’m guessing they came in the 80’s versions here down under.

Thanks Bill that would be nice.
I partially bolted my frame together and got the rough measurements.
If you can confirm the difference between front and middel (A and B pillar), should be 860mm according to FSM.
And the main one is left to right on the front tub mount, FSM says 1118mm but I measure 1192mm Give or take 2mm.

Hi Michael, I got a chance to go out this morning and try to take the measurements. Keep in mind that I'm using a tape measure in inches and converting that to mm, so there is room for some error.
1. the center of B pillar mount across to the opposite B pillar mount is 1230.3mm (my FSM says 1230mm).
2. center A pillar to center B bill (same side) is 848mm (my FSM indicates 860mm) so I'll remeasure this one.
3. A pillar to A pillar I get 1194mm. There's significant room for error in this one because of the transmission hump being in the way. That said I believe the FSM diagram value of 1118 is a typo, because the conversion table doesn't show that value, only 1188mm, and I don't see that value anywhere else on the diagram.

I'll double check my measurements, and repost if necessary.

Installed my distributor today. @ToyotaMatt supplied the pigtail and @4Cruisers did his magic touches on my distributor. Thanks for the service provided from both parties.
