Thanks for the info on the wheels.

Regarding the cluster, I've heard you can easily short the whole thing out. Are the guages still working? or just the lights out? On my 40, the interior dash lights are on the same fuse as the running lights and turn signals. Did you check the fuse?

I've never seen those caps before. Interesting!

I did manage to reinstall my e-brake and seat belt light! (Small victory I know) and replace some faded turn signal lenses. I really like the way it drives with the thinner tires! I got the choke cable working again through a Frankenstein type method of the old choke and the wire off a new FJ60 choke and some solder. It isn't pretty and I'm embarrassed to show you the results. (But it works!) Anyway, I'm still in the market for a new choke cable, so if you have one lying around for an 80+ 40 let me know!

I also found these center caps on ebay. I know they are for a 60, but I kind of like the way they look and I think they are useable as-is but I am thinking about taking them to get restored. Any thoughts? I also made a few problems while digging around behind my cluster the other day: The cluster lights don't work now, the turn signals and brights do, so I think I just blew a bulb, so those are now ordered. My license plate bulbs don't work either, so I bought some new ones and will look into this when I get home, anyone have some experience here?

Adam

I don't think I shorted it out, I always removed the negative battery cable before messing with it. The turn signals and everything else works! I didn't check the fuse but none of my interior lights work, something left over from the PO. The cluster lights did work earlier though.

It's almost summer time! I picked these up off of Craig's List the other day! It is kind of hard to tell, but they are a pair of SOR's fiberglass half doors. I'm pretty stoked about them. I was going to buy aqualu half-doors but I didn't like the fact that they didn't look like OEM on the outside. Should I paint them myself or take them somewhere? Thanks!

Nice. You could try painting them yourself, but it may be easier to have a shop do it so they can get the color match dead on.

Matt- Yeah, that sounds like the best plan. Hey, I know you need the pedal for the hand throttle, here is an ebay auction you might be interested in.

I contacted that guy - it's actually not a hand throttle, it's a gas pedal and cable. I thought it was a little inexpensive for being a hand throttle and pedal...

Sorry about that! I guess I should have fully read the ad! I'll see if the guy I bought the throttle from originally has the pedal assembly. I need a few things from him anyway.

Hey Adam, he actually changed the ad a little after I asked him about it, originally it did sound like a hand throttle.
