Nothing on my 80 but I did manage to get a 3" lift and 285s installed on my son's 4runner.

But now that it has been brought up I guess I better buckle down a few nights this week and next weekend and mod my storage unit to handle the new fridge.
Plus I'll need to put in my new rear springs (not here yet), rear calipers and SS brakeline.

Yup, I knew it... the board was slow because working on rigs is getting busy!

I still have to finish up the trailer, should be painting this weekend. Get it insured and reassembled and titled and wired... uggh.

Then onto the 40, new juice in the diffs, tranny, and case.
New fuse block.
Tune up.
Install the CB and remount the antenna (maybe)
Install a new power outlet for the fridge.
Install fridge with something other than ratchet straps.
Replace front ubolts.
Add turbo charger and ejection seat.

I tore out my upstairs bathroom and PREPPED the floor for tile. The tub is done. I cut my underlayment yesterday. I'll screw that down tonight. Tile on Wednesday? Drywall repair on Thursday? After that, Lin has to go shopping to pick out new stool, vanity, sink, spigot, mirror, anything else she wants...

My goal is to take 3 weekends to finish the bathroom, leaving 1 weekend to prep the truck. I guess I won't be doing anything major this year unless I REALLY bust it for 48 hours to get my steering ram installed.

Hey Ike. Here's mine.

The plastic sleeve at the engine end lets the main throttle slide right through it but then if you put some tension on the hand trottle, that screw/nut on the 2nd cable catches the sleeve and pulls the main cable. It works well--it just took a little while to get the right slack. I had it too tight at first and it'd spin up the engine every time I moved the shifter. With some extra slack, it works well.

OH, and we almost finished the laminate wood floor in the living/dining room. It never quite is as easy as it sounds in the instructions.

No pix. I elected to work the pedal rather than go to the TB. I built a bracket to mount on a flat plate which then attaches under the throttle pedal. The flat plate forms a platform for small square tubing, which extends to a small plate where the hand throttle cable mounts. The HT cable then is aimed right at the stock throttle cable and gas pedal arm.

I cut a notch in the pedal arm where the throttle cable attaches, so the cable holds the hand throttle cable in place, but the gas pedal arm works normally. The gas pedal arm just glides over the hand throttle cable. To install, slide the stock throttle cable off the arm, slide the HT cable into the hole and drop it in the new notch, then pop the stock throttle cable back into place. The HT cable cannot dislocate.

Very sano and it works great, installs simply too. Two slack adjustments (I used a Kawasaki KDX throttle cable bit that was just the right length) that I had laying around.

I'm looking to do it Bill's way, off of the pedal.

However, I'm not following the description, so I'll have to take a look at it sometime.
