Got mine. Surprised their editor didn't reject it. Gee, which Toyota should I put it on - seems to fit most of them!

Ken - it sounds like you're heading into this with the right attitude. I bought my 'no worries' FJ40 in 1990, only 12 years old, with 76K miles, but learned (later) that the intake manifold was...

Nice that they acknowledge something other than just this year's model, but otherwise lame. The 1957 FJ25 has 'available air conditioning'? And the FJ80s, 62s, 60s, etc. all show the cool Japanese...

See photos. I bought this seat 15 years ago and it has lived in my kids playhouse since then. It's extremely clean, and includes retracting lap belts and buckles.

The (former) Irbis guys run a lot of CL ads (indicating FJ62 parts), but I could never actually hook up with them to buy any parts, so I gave up trying. I agree that 62 parts are even harder to find...

The expression 'black iron pipe' means mild steel - just not galvanized steel pipe. (For natural gas piping, you don't use galv. due to flaking issues).

I'd sure trend toward using black iron gas pipe from Home Depot. Cheap, and a far thicker wall. These need to be heavily rustproofed inside, as you know, no matter how thick. I would make the whole...
