Operation Rebuild Chaos Edition Part 4

Things we got done today:

  • Got the Toyota factory hood "temporarily" installed - I didn't realize that it's a factory hood that Troy at Cal Mini Trucks got me. Damn that guy just keeps on surprising me with the cool stuff he finds greengrin
  • Mounted the tranny cooler - Hayden 678 Cooler (Can't go wrong with this one)
  • Mounted the power steering cooler - Hayden 678 Cooler (shoot if it works for the tranny then it should also work for the power steering)
  • Battery tray cut out (still have to bend some parts and make it so it'll hold the battery but it's a start).
  • Fuse box mounts made (still need to make one additional top plate w/ welded nut)
  • Cut off front body mount so I can relocate it
  • Hood liner removed from damaged hood

Things to do for tomorrow:

  • I need to fix the darn tranny and power steering coolers as they are sitting too high and I don't like it. So I need to take those tacks off and redo em.
  • Finish the battery tray
  • Finish the fuse box mount
  • Begin building the air compressor mount
  • Figure out if I can install the hood latch somehow.

Other pending items...

  • reinstall hood liner
  • remove and reinstall wiper washer lines
  • air box
  • reconnect all wiring
  • build power steering reservoir mount
  • build radiator fluid overflow container mount
  • build washer fluid mount
  • flush all fluids and do basic maintenance
  • install new belt
  • build sub frame for headlamp and fenders
  • build front bumper
  • charge a/c
  • paint hood?
  • prob some other stuff I'm forgetting
