I know , I know. But good things take time. :)I am getting closer.
I was reminded of my statement in 2008 that my SPFI setup was coming in the summer of '09 yeah, not there yet...
at least you are moving forward... I'm just stuck.

I got my Detroit sticker last night
and my 6 puck clutch disc. I might have messed up on that one! LOL
I should start assembling motor, and finish T-case this weekend sans Seahawk time.

Yeah, I should know better than to try an put expectations in place. But I MAY have a 4 day weekend. Two of those days for the Mama , and maybe I'll look at the truck lol

Also got the T-case all torn down(again) and cleaned-ish mostly. lol
Put it back together with the shift fork in the right direction! DOH!
And Ultra grey in lew of gaskets, as well as Assembly lube in ALL the places it needed it.hopefully.LOL
Should serve me well for a while.
Just threw the front diff up on the bench for the locker swap starting this week.
I have some timing belt assembly on the motor I hope to accomplish tomorrow.

I have been wheeling since I was about 10yo in the desert and rocks, I may be new over here. But by far not new to the wheeling world.
I'm ready. Good to see progress, looking forward to that "pucker" look on your face as you finally get to wheel it thru some crazy shiz.
Not to say I won't have the " O " face.. lol
It will be weird to be in a truck again though. Way higher off the ground than I have been in years<in the woods at least.
I can't wait either bro, I can't wait either. This football season has kept me away from the garage a lot. So , after we win next week I will be back at it a little more often.

Got some relays ordered.
Got the new timing components on, covers are sealed up.
Sensors are on the engine.
Swapped intakes to one I had from Uberoo's car. Man, Am I glad we took that engine out.LOl
I will give one back of the same vintage when He needs it.
It needs a custom bracket made for the power steering pump, which is for a Toyota hydro steer setup. That could be interesting.
For Air I have the choice of 2 Cadillac electric pumps, or a York oilless. Depends on if I can change the v belt pulley on the York or not.
I have a whole bunch of stuff to do .
But am plugging away.

I've only taken my truck wheeling ONCE since I built it, and got the trespassing ticket… I wanna go wheeling too dammit… SWWA is pretty restricted as to where it is OK to be off road and not risk getting ticketed. Keep up the good work…..

So the dirtiness can almost commence again.
I am thinking that I want a stock Subaru color.
I think that a Colin tribute would be awwesome!
However, It might end up either ea81 Maroon, or Ea81 green.
The other thought was Old school landcruiser Mustard yellow.
Flat and or muted with no shine.
Could even go with a wrap. I knkow a couple of cats that do that type of stuff.....
what say ye interrnets?
Posted 17 February 2014 - 12:28 AM
no offense, however.NO fawkin way. lol
This is the best use of a Toyota I've seen yet! My vote on color goes towards (i don't know the exact name) the same red that a lot of the ea82 Loyales were... for example: http://www.motorstow...u-loyale-08.jpg

This is my Vote:
... Old school landcruiser Mustard yellow. Flat and or muted with no shine...
Because beside I like Yellow, the Dark Mustard Yellow without shine of the Old-School Landcruisers were very well fitted for an awesome & Serious offroading machine, like yours.
