Closer every week! Between babies and a move half way across the country, its been a challenge. Rebuilt a land cruiser in 2003 and it was the same way... 4 year project.

While reading your rusty bolt stories I had to laugh out loud. I bought all that bolt breaking gear in a fit of rage at harbor freight and northern tool in an afternoon. oh yeah and about 4 cans of PB blaster until I discovered Kroil. All turned out to be a great way to teach my kids how to use a cut off wheel and plasma torch!

Kroil and a map gas torch are what we use daily. Its amazing what two or three heat cycles and spray with kroil in between will loosen.

I couldn't agree more. Keeping a level head helps a bit too!

Chip and RBBaily I've got about 1200 pics of my tear down (85 CSW 110) if you need anything for reference. Happy to help.

I really don't know. The previous owner said he had to put them in to meet Canadian DoT law....???? They act as full time running lights whenever the key is turned. I thought it would be easy to just pull the plug on them....... he wired it directly from the coil, loops through the wing, connects to the main harness for each wing blinker (???) then across the front to the other wing, connects there as well. He also has a single red wire from the coil to the starter solenoid.... I haven't figured it all out yet.

Christ power from the coil direct to a lamp ? Cut those wires. The power to the coil is not fused, your fire potential was very high. The design of the defender wiring harness is such that there is additional capacity to add turn repeaters or parking lamps on the wing by simply plugging them in behind the headlamps. Amazing

Yeah, I was thinking the same thing. He used an overly large wire for this. And he did go through a relay -- it's a relay.... no, I just need to post a pic.... I don't get it.

Now that I'm pulling parts apart, I'm interested in seeing what the heck is going on with this, so I'll track down where each of these wires go.

Oh, and what you say about putting them in behind the headlamps -- that's exactly what I would do, and what I've done with lamps on previous vehicles.... works fine, easy.

the wiring harness already has the plugs, simply plug in a new lamp with bullet connectors. Why anyone would do something different.....

That's what is confusing me even more. OK, sure wire your own complete circuit (even if you don't need to) but he seems to have not only wired it on it's own, but it's all wired into the main harness with those bullet connector sockets you are mentioning! ...glad I'm pulling this all apart to see what crap is inside.

QUESTION:

This is a bit in the future, but I had all sorts of good ideas about where I was going to put all the cool Tdi gauges and such when I was going to convert to standard dash. But now I'm keeping the NAS version, so.... where have you all done boost, EGT, and other gauges that I will be wanting to add? The Raptor dash doesn't really work now.

What should I do about stuck door hinge screws? They have been soaked with PB for two weeks from inside and out.

quickest way is to drill off the head. they are a bitch to get out if they are frozen in place.

Ready to do just that but was wondering what the aftermath will be -- will the screw come loose with the speed nut? Or is it the type that you don't have to worry about that with?

Since yours is a hard top, there is an overhead console you can install Gage's in for added coolness
