Well got the alternator and battery back in in under an hour. Seems to be working fine. Not a hard job to do. Keep your receipts for all your lifetime stuff...it pays off. I got my new $165 alternator for free
Looks niceStarted rust treatment... Began with cleaning and brushing, used some rust remover, metal brushes and WD40 to clear much as possible
It goes good but super tiring to be honest, all out of elbow grease 😅 😅
Hope to have some time tomorrow, I'll remove the skids and go some more...
Also I remembered I have my dremel with brush heads, should help make things easier....
I want to see it shiny and clean so I can put some primer, paint and undercoating...
Good luck to me...

Not to be nosey but what was the grand total doing that... I really like that.. you do back seats also?.I posted this yesterday on an old thread I had started, asking about upholstery. Seems like this is a better spot, so I hope I'm not breaking the rules for double-posting. View attachment 1175467
New Katzkin leather upholstery. Lone Star Leather of Fort Worth did an excellent installation.
The total before sales tax was $1,045 including the logos and contrasting stitching. The back seats have the stitching but not the logos. This was at a small shop that does a lot of work for Toyota dealers. I had a quote of $1,695 for exactly the same job from another installer, so shop around. Katzkin no longer shows FJ upholstery on their web site but they still make them. My installer didn't know that until I told him to call Katzkin. My leather color is charcoal and the stitching is Hyper Yellow. It doesn't match Sun Fusion as closely as I'd hoped, but I'm very happy with the overall result. One nice benefit is the "new car leather" smell!Not to be nosey but what was the grand total doing that... I really like that.. you do back seats also?.
Maybe it's the new seatbelt with airbag built in? Totally kidding, of course!Ordered front right seatbelt and ratchet assembly. It must be something special because it has to be shipped as a hazardous material classification.
