Awesome looking build. Not sure if anyone else called it out or not yet, but that waste gate line will need to run up to the intake manifold to get a boost reading and not to exhaust.

FYI the waste gate is being used to regulate back pressure for my exhaust brake not to control boost pressure. If you noticed it is also after the turbocharger so wouldn't do anything for wasting the exhaust energy that drives the turbo. The explanation is there just before or after that picture. With all the people that have told me I'm doing it wrong, I guess I should have called it my exhaust pressure bypass instead of a waste gate.

Thanx for letting me know I did it wrong,
Jaysin

Don't be sorry, I'm not really all that bothered (although I am a sarcastic SOB). But do learn from this and save yourself from doing it again. You know what they say, "Assume, it makes and ASS out of U and ME."

Good luck,
Jaysin

Time for an update of this seemingly never ending story. Damn I need to work faster.

I now have all the body rust repaired and all the sheet metal work finished. Time for a skim of bondo on the fixes to fill the minor imperfections and sanding till my fingers bleed, then paint. No real picture for this stuff yet but getting there.

I did however build bump stops and (I think) the axles have been bolted on for the last time. I incorporated them into the U- Bolt plates and they use the stock frame stops. Not much to be said about it so I'll get to the pictures.

Front.


Rear.


All Four.


Front from the front.


Front from the rear.


Rear.


I know I could have cut off the rear u-bolts but I still may need to add a short lift block to even out the stance once I get full weight on the truck.

There you go. I cut them out of 3/16" plate (which is probably overkill) and with the speed holes they don't add much to the unsprung weight. I don't think the Energy Suspension Poly bumps are going to give much but they should do their job and stop things from smacking into each other and keep the springs from bending by going into reverse arc.

I keep plugging away and posting progress.

Thanx for looking,
Jaysin

I have been rather busy with customer work as of late and only getting a little time here and there to work on it. Believe me, there is no one that wants this truck done more then me. I have been doing a bit of finish body work, smoothing the imperfections and getting it ready for paint. My flat bed is at the powder coater, should be done in a few weeks. Tires from Tread Wright showed up and I am waiting on my 16 x 8 wheels to come from U.S. Wheel (custom backspace takes 2-4 weeks). I am getting ready to pull the motor so I can finish the engine compartment and do the timing belt service/install the new injector pump and button everything up. Sorry I haven't had regular updates but it's been a busy summer and most of what I have been doing on it doesn't really show up well in pictures.

Soon,
Jaysin

Well then...
I suppose a thank you for the parts and get back to work slacker bout covers it.

Far, far too long since the last update. Not that I haven't been working on the truck, I have, but it has been the kind of work that is painfully tedious to do and even more tedious to see pictures of. Damn body work. One day my finger prints will grow back. It would figure that the truck I chose to build would have been as full of dimples as a golf ball. It really doesn't help that I am learning how to do finish body work as I go. Here's a couple of pictures of it for you.

This is the front fender that needed all the repair work. It is finally almost ready to prime.


The roof was the worst part and I have 15+ hours into making it right (probably 4-5 hours left). I think someone had a dance party up there. It was so stretched and oil canned. It took the better part of 6 hours to shrink it up with a torch.


Here is a (bad) picture of all the shrinking I had to do.


I've been working on a dash insert since the original was all broken and really didn't have enough room for the stereo and the extra gauges. I will need to cut and change a bit of the dash structure to clear the stereo but what's a little more work at this point, right?


I built a new aluminum radiator overflow tank. The notch around the hole in the core support is to clear the air intake for the intake air box that I am currently working on. I should have pictures of that soon.


I was having a hell of a time finding a cap and fill neck small enough for this tank, that and all the weld on fillers were $30-40. I stumbled on some aluminum garden hose parts that, I think, fit the bill pretty well. They are black anodized and came from Gempler's Supply. The cost was around $5 for the male part and $4 for the cap.


Now for the fun bit. The new wheels and tires.






The tires are from Tread Wright, they are their new bead to bead retreads. They are identical tread pattern to the BFG All-terrain. Of course they don't offer the size I wanted in 15" wheel so I also had to order so new wheels at the same time, they're U.S. Wheel Stealth Series 16x8s and I added the little two tone green pin stripes while I was at it to tie them into the body color which will also be green. The tire size is 285/75-R16 and they measure within a hair's breath of 33".

There is a ton of other little body work spots that I have been dealing with but I really think that it's better for your and my sanity if I don't post the 100 or so pictures that I would need to to show it all. Needless to say I have spread nearly a quart of Bondo and have sanded 97% of that back off. It is starting to come around and I hope to be priming and painting here soon.

Thanx for your patience.
Jaysin

This is a great thread. I initially found this thread by reading Jaysinspaceman's threads over on the Garage Journal. After the last update on the Toyota I decided to register and quit lurking in silence.

I will now return to lurking in silence.....

I am honored that my build thread inspired you to sign up. I hope that you will one day share some of your work here for us. Or at the very least, I hope that we here at the OFN inspire you to get out into the garage and twist a wrench and make some sparks.

Thanx,
Jaysin

I appreciate the welcome. I'll mainly be a lurker. My gig is full blown geek-out Japanese motorcycle restorations. And old GM pickups. Not really pertinent to this forum. But, I'll be reading every post on your thread when you update it.

So a bit more done and I am hoping that I will have a little free time to continue getting more done.

I start with that PS line that I had started another thread about. I went to Pick n Pull Friday and got a PS line from a 4wd Toyota of early 90's vintage that had the correct banjo fitting on the pump end and had about the right amount of soft line and then cut off, bent and re-flared the steering box end and I came up with this...

I really love going to the junk yards, there are so many parts and Ideas to choose from. And all without completely draining the wallet.

I also made up a PS tank as well. It is aluminum and about three and a half times the volume of the stock tank. The cap is made from some an aluminum garden hose fitting and cap. The hose fittings I turned up on the lathe as I was having a hard time finding aluminum hose fittings for a reasonable price. It mounts through the inner fender to a threaded steel backing plate that has been riveted to the opposite side of the inner fender, good and sturdy.



The only thing left on the PS tank is to vent it but I haven't decided how best to vent it yet. I don't just want a hole in the cap as I am afraid that might leak a little because there isn't any sort of baffle. If you have an Idea on the best way to vent a PS tank let me know. I will also likely make up some sort of cooler for the low pressure return line.

I also got the Air Filter Box made up. Again it is aluminum and it holds a rectangular filter that measures 5.75 x 11.25. It draws through the slash cut tube coming off the lower box and then up through the filter and into the engine. The fact that it draws up through the filter should keep the filter dry(er) when driving in the rain.



I still need to get or make the clips to hold the top on. I will likely make or scrounge some spring clips like OEM air boxes have.


In the truck. You can see that the intake for the pre-filter air sticks through the core support. I think it is even the same hole used for the original air intake. It should get nice cool air here for the most part. The aluminum tube that goes from the air box to the turbo is just for mock-up, I will be finding a 2" rubber hose with the appropriate 45 degree bends. The silicon connectors and aluminum tube are just too stiff and will transfer to much vibration and strain to the air box.




In other news I got the flatbed and headache rack back from the powder coater. It's down at my folks place having the wood fitted to it, Dad's more of a wood worker then I am. I'll get pictures of it as soon as it comes up to my shop. I won't be installing it until the paint work on the cab is done but it is another thing crossed off my list.

Thanx for watching at home,
Jaysin

Its a nice treat to check my email and find a subscription notice that you've updated this thread.

I'm looking forward to seeing the bed and rack installed onto the truck. I guess you'll be finishing paint and body work on the cab before installing it though ?

Hey Jaysin, some of us are accessing this thread from work and could use a little warning before you post porn like that. I appreciate a sexy-ass air filter box as much as the next guy, but who knows what HR is going to say. Seriously that is sooooo sweet!

Glad to see you making progress. Some day this is going to be a sweet expedition rig and you'll be ready to dust off the bender project to finish it off.
