I'm board, so I took the time to try, and get a grip on the corrosion everywhere on the fj. Fluid film, and woolwax are my weapons of choice. On ,and around the motor was so much corrosion. So I made myself small, and used a little brush, and paint brush. Still has corrosive spots, but at least I tried. That keeps me from puking

She was a fast machine
She kept her motor clean
She was the best damn woman I had ever seen....

Oops! Wrong thread although she too kept her motor clean.

Looks good!

Nicely done! You're not the only one who uses a paint brush to detail the engine.

Thank you. I'm from denver where things dont rust. I Just had to get creative with grease, or whatever protects, and fluid film is my go to. Plus cleaning, and detailing is free. I'd rather show pictures of a supercharger installation. 😀 but that's expensive

I use my FJ to go to my farm weekly (am heading there now for the weekend). I just popped my hood, due to remembering your thread. The amount of dust/dirt I pick up, my clean engine would last 5 days till the next visit.

But you have inspired me to clean it when I get back home.

That's great! Glad to hear it. Good time for inspection too! You said one of my favorite words. 'Farm'. That puts me in a happy place. Your lucky. Enjoy✌. What kind of farm is it?

I would still like to have an in person meeting with the frame team and have them explain to me why they never figured out the rust problem. They had how many years to get it figured out and they never did. WTF What The Frame!

I have a theory. Toyota upped the carbon content in the frame to make it stronger, but neglected to apply the proper coatings to protect it. High carbon steel likes to rust.
