Of course I'm out of town until Monday. And by good stuff I mean free coffee and donuts!

When Ron had the shop he used to just hand me stuff whenever I would drop by. "Here, you need a spare driveshaft?".

Well, Steven pretty much did that today. I got a LOT of stuff for only $55, so I thought it was a pretty good deal. Going to have to go back there perhaps next Sunday - they're moving to Northglenn, basically 104th and I-25, and will probably be moved in at their new location by 11/7.

Windshield wiper arms (big win), rear corner reflectors (big win), rear side marker lights (big win), heater lever knob (big win), some clamps, hardware, exhaust manifold heat shields, interior pull handle, fuel filter bracket, fuel line bracket, dome light cover, and some other miscellaneous items. Thinking about going back to pick up front turn signal housings, door mirrors, and pieces of wiring harnesses. He didn't have any apron emblems for my model year though, and no carbs

He does have a factory AM radio in a '78 though, but it was a little out of my price range for today. He had a '76, two '78s, and a '72 that he let me pick through a little bit, in addition to the parts he already had pulled and boxed up as part of the "garage sale."

Also got some free tips on how to repair a couple of the items I picked up, as well as how to possibly repair my hazard switch on my own

Also saw the PO of my 40 for a few minutes and got to chat with him about his projects, so that was cool

All in all it was a good day wrenching

Oh, and he's restoring an FJ25 with some of his other projects, so it was cool to see the centered rear diff and body-colored frame

Another thing he has a few of, that I didn't realize were an OEM part, is the little pan that sits between the frame rails between the radiator and the fan. Had no idea.

They had an 80 frame, can't remember if it had a drivetrain in it. They had mostly 40s and 60s.

couldn't resist, went back today to pick up front turn signal assemblies (the last they had of my style), door mirrors and gaskets, a BVSV (yay!), and for kicks I picked up the splash guard for the front of the engine and some older-style apron emblems, because I spent a bunch of money a few years ago on the SOR plastic replicas for my model year and they just broke right away, these metal ones seem to last longer, and I think the earlier apron emblems have a more classy font to them anyway
