I watched that when you posted it, and keep forgetting to respond. I would go that route for sure. What all is involved in the conversion?

Same dude did a vid on the conversion.



There are aftermarket H4 halogen bulbs/LED's that would fit the Hella option. Have also mused the uber $$ option of going 5x7 JW Speaker Evolution 2.

Been tinkering with the old Toyota for a spell. Started out as an oil change, gooping U-joints and creeper lookabout before elk season. To my surprise, the old boy was slobbering oil onto its lower regions. Looked to be cam/valve cover gasket leaks. No prob. Ordered parts and decided to do the timing belt, water pump and idlers too. Geez, I'm there so might as well check valve lash. Shit! 4 were way out of spec. after having the heads rebuilt some years ago. I'm on a roll so I pulled the alternator and checked brushes and commutator bar. Brushes were approaching the minimal spec. Cleaned up the contacts and guts. The oil pump runs off the crank and the seal looked crispy. More parts ordered. Brake fluid was due for a flush and power steering too. Ordered Speed Bleeders (highly recommended!) and bought fluids. Should be all back together this week. I'll be ready for next season.... *grin*

Finally taking someone's advice and added a "roof rack" over the cab.



Having a hoist in the shop makes a lot of shit easier.


Load test.

O'head shop lighting now appears to be much improved from the "ladder mounts" of old. Progress!

Nice job on the new rack. Your load tester is getting bigger! Any plans for light mounts above the cab? When is the annual 'bou trip? Looking forward to pixels and prose....

My partial rebuild went well last winter. Found one the CV shaft boots had split and was spitting grease a few weeks ago. Better discovered in the driveway than 2-states away at 10k AMSL.

If you haven't already done so, the OEM shifter seats are shit and fall apart in a few years, dropping pieces of plastic into your tranny. Marlin Crawler has slick replacement seats that are machined Delrin. My OEM seat looked like black plastic sand when I pulled it apart. Shifter is nice and snug now.

Yeah.. the shop is close enough to done to start playing in it instead of working on it. Don't think I'm going to to lights up there for now. Would rather not fight glare on the windshield. Bou/moose trip will be here before I'm ready smile

Thanks for the link. Can't remember if I got one of those or not, so ordered it...

Or rather... added it to the cart, balked at the $32 shipping quote for a 2oz item, and didn't order it.

Yikes!

You'll likely need the seat and socket. Shipping to WA was not anywhere near that dear. Let me know which ones you want and if you talk nice to me, I'll check shipping for you. Could drop them in a flat rate mailer or otherwise if there's a better deal to be had with the indirect flight and you sending me some form of payment and Karma points....

Sockets

I put the socket (MCTM-532) and a red seat in my cart... that's where I came up with $32.

I sent them a very polite email. We'll see where that goes.

As point of reference for your parts, FedEx Ground is $15.01 to WA....
