Nice truck man!
Progression is slow but it is moving forward.
I got a 3 inch drop with the Moog 2278's, and saved my originals.
Slow progress... but its still progress
Removed most of the surface rust and touched up some of the paint. Also began experimenting with my harbor freight special DA buffer.
The harbor freight buffers aren't as bad as you'd expect.. really just matters what compounds you use
It's been awhile. Although I'm always on here, I haven't logged in for some time now. I clear coated the hilux a couple years back to keep the patina. I did it to buy me some time so I can eventually paint it. Had some big plans this year for it but since the pandemic is going on, major things will likely happen next year. Hope everyone is staying safe, keep on truckin!
Welcome back man.
Thanks man! Lovin the progress on your truck BTW. Keep it up!
Thank you! Appreciate the compliment
Wow! 5 and half years later... not much has happened. Since my last progress update, added a clear coat buy me time for a repaint. Clearcoat is now starting to peel. Swapped over my wheels from my other truck. Also upgraded my carb to a weber.
Currently, I have the dash and sheet metal removed. Since I'm having electrical issues, decided to upgrade the almost 50year old harness. This is where it currently sits.
Progress has been slow, only because of the limited spare time. So far, I have the front end wired up. I can drive her around at least. Started cleaning up the interior. Gutted everything out. Will clean it all up before doing the interior wiring.
Today, I managed to find the elusive (at least for me it is) radio delete plate. I have been searching for this since I got the truck. Has a hairline crack in it. Will be repairing before installing.
Is that on OEM block off or the FJ cruiser one?
OEM. I've seen those before. Someone was even reproducing them for awhile. I was even considering one but since this one came up, I knew I had to have it since I have only seen 1 pic throughout the internet. These are very hard to come by
Thats so dope.
