You should be worried more about those that warned you than me though...

basically I've been told to say "No" to any requests for any parts of my rig, and "No" to any trade requests either.

I don't have any children, but I'll be damned if my chest didn't swell with pride the more people told me about my FJ40 and how rare it is. It makes me more determined to keep her stock. I could buy a newer FJ40 and build the heck outta that one...but this one will stay as close to stock as I can keep her.

I think the event turned out great and it ended up being what we wanted it to be " Newbies wrenching and learning, and the old timers can heckle".

Major thanks to Ricardo and Daniel for manning the mops!!!

And thanks again Christo, without your help this wouldn't have happened this year!

All of them are GREAT, and there aren't that many. You can upload 5 per post, limit 150kB/ea IIRC. Goodness knows I must have shared a hundred when I did my engine refresh and 4 speed conversion thread.

Happy cruisin'!
