    Nothing new with Redee, think I’m still working on the same tank of gas from my last post almost a month ago. Shame on me I know.

    I lead James on a tour by the orchard in his new ‘08 Yellow FJ, and both trucks ran like champs. I hopped out of Redee to get a short vid of James in the FJ, and parked facing downward on a hill. When it was time to go, I couldn’t get Redee out of Park. The shift cable had finally failed. With a massive ratchet strap I was able to anchor off the FJ, pull the tension off the park detent pin and shift into a Forward gear. Once on flat ground (and with much assistance from James), I layed under Redee to manually select Drive on the side of the trans.

    Other than the pooped cable, both trucks had a blast touring.

    Thanks again James for not letting me run myself over haha.

    Finally got the broken shift cable out, such a pain. I can only hope that getting a new one in will somehow magically be less of a pain in the ass.

    With lots of help from Matt, we put the hardtop back on Redee. Three days later I still have not finished bolting it down, but she’s without a trans cable, and the urgency to bolt the roof down is very low.

    Roof, bolted down.
    Trans cable, installed and adjusted. We’re good to go.

    Got some time in the shop today to replace my burnt out brake light bulb, upgrading most of the bulbs to LED while I was in there. Only the brake light remains with an old school filament, the 1157 is dual filament and my LED version was incompatible.
