and prado diff in.

DSCN5088.JPG


put power onto locker to unlock it, jacked a wheel up and can spin one.

brakes bled, enough to get it to town anyway.

tonight's jobs are put another coat of paint onto front bar, & trim shroud because fan blades are hitting it, new viscous hub is a bit longer than the old one.

TRD, so just bolts into place. vacuum hoses are different lengths but otherwise straight swap.

been slow with moving house and job.

but got something done.

removed intake silencers, americans reckon a gain of 5-7RWHP so must do something, :) and supposed to sound gruntier too. :D

hopefully let the supercharger breath a little bit easier. 8)

DSCN9018.JPG

back nearly stripped out ready for cutting. roof lining to unclip and windows to take out.

seats can stay there until back is in right place then take them out.

A bit done, partly bird pood in. A few gaps where not cut flush, will cut guards and pull gaps closed, won't be visible behind deck anyway.

Think I might buy a regulator and disposable bottle for the panel work.

Was good to meet you and the family Saturday, hope the trip home went well.

I'm pretty sure that drive shaft hoop will require another piece in the middle to encapsulate the drive shaft more . If it broke and traveled the length of the u bend it would have no trouble whipping all that off

I have wondered if that would be the case, so will end up making another piece to bolt in centre closer to the driveshaft. another job added to the list.

Can i assume you are retaining the rear window function of being able to be wound down, electrically?

that was the plan, but would only go down to top of arches, which is about half way. also I had to cut the bottom off the runners the window slides in to fit around arches. so window now doesn't move.

plus the rear radiator will either be behind window on the left, or horizontal on roof straight above rear window so be safer if window didn't open anyway.

have tried to take a sideish on photo but not much room in shed, i'll add off my phone.
