My father has been living with us since my mother passed in December. Yesterday we returned to my home town to finish up some unresolved items relating to the funeral – by 3:00 dad was in the ER.
It’s been an intense year already and we’re barely into February. I’m interested to see what the new normal will be.
With any luck, he and I go back [to my] home tomorrow.
I’m designing a Panhard Drop Bracket for the 3rd generation 4Runner.
I’ve designed a panhard lift bracket for the 3rd generation 4runner.
While looking for a factory 4.10 e-locker for the 4Runner, I inadvertently ended up joining the Carolina 4Runner Off Road Group on Facebook. In less than a week, these guys have either helped me source, or sold to me the locker, a donor axle assembly with links, replacement front seats (96/97 cloth), replacement steering wheel (also correct for 96/97), rear cargo cover, and factory cargo net.
In addition, I’ve picked up replacement carpet, cargo area side panels (from an ’01 for the larger storage bin), cup-holder console (from the ’01), and conversion parts to make the passenger window auto/express. I believe I’ll add the 2001 rear seat backs and bases (I’ll reupholster with the 96 cloth), replacement power antenna, and replacement exhaust to the list of used/salvage items that the truck is getting over the next few weeks.
Having access to a local network of enthusiastic, like-minded folks is invaluable, in case you didn’t know.
993, M3, R75/5, and Z600 have shuffled off my mortal coil.
putting my shoulder into 207 and the m715; will escort them out like a good host, as well

it’s been a long weekend. time to purge.
i have lots of well-intentioned projects that have more or less died on the table and must be converted into more useful things.
