Wiring Looms took a lot of time ,Fortunatly had another old BJ loom so could cut off plugs and
 change some wires and keep same colours ,Most of headlight circuit wiring was burnt .
 Pic of wiring after repairs .
 
 New Heater Valve .
 
Air Cleaner Housing Modified to Suit Turbo and Snorkel ,Had to buy old 75 series housing to
 cut off inlet to modify onto BJ housing ,had to change direction of turbulator plates in housing
 as original inlet comes in at 180degrees to what i needed for Snorkel Inlet .
 
 79 Series with 1HZ air cleaner hoses worked a treat .

Made up Pod for Oil press ,Temp,Voltage VDO gauges .Original all wired in and working aswell
 The VDO gauges more accurate .IMO .
 
 
 
 Couldn't Get BJ original Washer bottle and Rad Bottle .Managed to get Genuine Toyo for FJ
 so decided on this route ,looks neater too IMO  :D
 
 
 
 New IPF Headlights with Osram Night Breaker Bulbs .
 
 Did the Jos Headlight and Hooter Relay Upgrade .The old wiring and old system not up to it anymore .A mod i recommend for all old Cruisers .Had to add an additional relay for hooter
to actvate Jos,s box of tricks .Jos,s Mod very easy and simple to install ,did it all myself and i am
not gifted in the electricity dept .

 Snorkel All fitted and Windscreen brackets on bonnet ,Didn't have originally .looks better with ,IMO .
 
 
 Fitted New Sun Visors and New Rear View Mirror .
 
 Spare wheel carrier fitted ,Had all new pins and bushes made up .
 
 Rear Doors put on and Still need finishing ,Had to rebuild up all the mechanisms couldn't get new
 anywhere ,Only Striker Plates New .
 
 Christmas Pressie from the Family for The Yellow . :D
 
 Looks like it was built for my 40 .Perfect fit .Just need to mount it .
 
 Thats the Last of my Slow Progress Pictures ,Need To finish off Doors and a few other bits and Pieces ,
 Have Driven it for about 50kms ,Everything works ,no vibrations ,And that 13BT very sweet plenty
 of Grunt .Pulls in 5th gear with those 33,s no problem .whereas 3B battled 5th Gear with 31,s .
 13Bt was a good decision to fit . :)
