Thanks! I was looking on eBay and scored a set of Bushwacker OE style for less than half price, hard to beat...

Utemart flares is something i also would be keen to get my hands on! They look really good!

Working on finding a new image hosting service and I'll get those links fixed. The last few weeks I have been changing all the fluids, so far rear diff, xfer case, radiator and trans pan gasket/filter. Front diff and brake fluid forthcoming.

I've updated the photos on the previous pages to a new service, hopefully they will last for a while!

I looked at Utemart flares, they look great! Unfortunately, shipping is likely to be double the cost of the flares... I love the fact that they use inserts and actual screws on the side instead of simulated on some models!

Got the transmission pan removed, looks pretty good considering I don't believe any of the fluids have ever been changed. Replaced the filter and sealed with Toyota FIPG as per the FSM. I also pulled all the skidplates and side guards as I think rewiring the front end will come next.

Tore into the front end to rewire a few things. Winch is getting a shutoff relay, all scotch locks are being removed and the front LEDs are getting wired to a switch instead of coming on with the fogs. Along with some tidying up of previous wiring.

Also ordered a new left headlamp from Poland as the old one was badly cracked on the back. Polishing the RH to match.
