Aye Fellas,

Long time no hear or see. I decided to try to revive the maintenance thread. If for nothing else to keep good maintenance on the crew!

Holla!

i think the style bug has bitten me. ok, so i am gonna do a 90% refinish on the lux. already planned out. not removing anything. complete tape off. i kind of have it ready made since anyone who has seen her lately, has seen all the clearcoat is flaking off. i am going to peel off all, run a 600grit sandpaper, prep ,thin coat of black and some extra clearcoat. should be completed in half day. next i am gonna install my fender flares.

i need help to choose a colour since they are scratched up so i need to paint them. i am thinking silver. or even matte black.

next i am gonna do the HID retrofit. you all know me, i am gonna do it myself. pheonix, when i remove the headlamp, i will make the brackets for you since mines will be off.

next will be buff and polish and then i have another stripe kit sitting at home. not really into stripes but i have it home on a shelf. gonna stripe both sides.

also have a KEL roll bar lying around. thinking of removing my oem bar and installing the KEL roll bar.

also, we expect to get worklight permits in a week. THIS MEANS I WILL BE LEGALLY OK TO INSTALL SOME KC LIGHTS!!!

all this doing with a shoestring budget of $2000. trust me, i'll get it done

pheonix, picking up an nze today........

Nothing much going on with the 1kzte. Basic oil and filter change due next 3000km. Been behind a 4jj1 (common rail) lately, recently serviced. A bit noisy but good performance nonetheless. 5l up for service soon ... All oem filters (air, oil and fuel) will be changed.

Been giving Valvoline oil a try. Amsoil too expensive and Mobil scarce like gold.

Guys, I need a new grease gun. The one I currently have is almost 40 years old, the nipple attachment is damaged and it has a couple leaks.

Any suggestions on where I can get a new one at a reasonable price?

It functioned flawlessly up until a few months ago.... considering how long it lasted, I think that was a lot of value for whatever money my dad paid for it.

Last time I went to Farfan, I was not impressed with the service. I'll check out allied tools.
