    @nottoshabi @Perkolator Bought those bottles a few years ago for my last project (RA21 Celica). I think I bought them off someone from Celica forum. They look like universal bottles that you can get on ebay. The connector for the washer pump is the same. Didn't have to mess with any wiring. But you can get the tandem bottles that's similar to OE setup from here. You sill have to fabricate a bracket to mount it though.

    That's awesome. I love these gauges even more now. Analog and tech all in one. What brand are these @RN23CB ?

    So the turn signals are working now. The oil pressure sender is still leaking after I put more teflon tape and tighten it a lot. I’m gonna have to try sealant. Going on a road trip this weekend, so won’t be able to work on it till next weekend.

    Also started working on the rear brakes and the shoes are soaked in gear oil. Pulled the axels to check the seals and found out wheel bearings are wobbly. So I ordered axel seals, wheel bearings and gaskets from the dealer.

    Not really looking forward to changing the bearings as I don’t have a press. Gonna have to figure something out.

    Got the parts in from the dealer. Also received the oil filter sandwich adaptor for the oil pressure sender. Just got tired of dealing with leaky tee fitting after multiple attempts to install the senders. I'm getting pretty good at removing and reinstalling the starter. The starter nut on the top is a pain in the butt; especially with the fender mirror on the way.

    Hello, Were you able to figure out the turn signal issue? I am having the same problem I think. My hazard lights work fine but I have no turn signals.

    Love the transformation! What was the fix for the turn signals?

    Thank you. All I did was removed and cleaned my hazard switch and the connector under the steering column.
