    Not bad for 10-hours at all. Are these going to be welded on or bolted on?

    your buddy has a sweet 4Runner too! Going first-gen crazy here!

    Good eye slick, my friend is scrapping his Xtracab so I grabbed the weather stripping and the clips from his truck! Took an SR5 gauge cluster too and the windshield trim.

    No kidding Finn, I haven’t worked much because there’s been no snow so I’ve had lots of time to tinker.

    Got a light bar at princess auto yesterday and installed it today on my bumper.

    Oh man those sliders look like a whole lot more than you spent. Great work man.

    Spotted a Boler on a cruise with my girls yesterday. Heading home from Alliston, took a road we’ve never driven before, and this was just before the dead end.

    Looked in good shape, def sitting a while though.

    That thing is awesome and it matches your Runner. I wonder if they’d sell it. What would you pay for something like that? I know they’ve gone up in value since people like the older look of them.

    Been chipping away at my truck tonight in the shop, I finally got my twin shifter boot for the tcase. Wired up the CB which has been a long time coming. And I swapped out my gauge cluster, hopefully I have a working temp sensor now. The electric one I got doesn’t seem to be working for some reason. I’ve been 5 years without. I would always get random temperature overshoot and the gauge would climb and it always made me nervous.

    I just need to take note somewhere of the kms of the old gauge now because I’ll need that when I renew my sticker haha!

    Don’t think I’m in the market for a trailer yet, no idea what a Boler is worth. Gonna work on backyard camping with the girls this spring/summer, hopefully do an overnight or weekend at a Provincial Park if all goes well.

    I’ll send you a pinpoint on a map if you wish to pursue that boler. There wasn’t a For Sale sign, Zi just recall you had an interest in them.

    Sounds like you were pretty productive while waiting on the flakes to fly. We got 5-10cm last night, made the drive to work today much more fun.

    Yeah text me the pin! I’m always looking into flipping neat projects. Millennials and tiny house enthusiasts pay a premium for these stupid little things according to the kijiji prices I just searched. Mind you the ones on there are well outfitted.

     

    Provincial parks are perfect to start out.

    I’ve been looking for a Boler for a while now.  People want a fortune even for sh!t boxes!

    You should definitely check that one out then it looks pretty cool!

    SIDE NOTE: Does anyone have experience with portable air compressors. I’m thinking the 12v ones that clamp to your battery is probably best for me. If I came across a deal on an ARB one I could go that route but I like the idea of the portable ones coming in a bag and staying out of the elements. Rather than wiring one into the engine bay.

    Have a stuck brake calliper that I’m addressing And  finally tracked down a coolant leak coming from the thermostat housing so I just got a new gasket and will finish putting it in today. did an oil change as well.

    Also a friend of mine in the Dundas area is selling his BJ 60.  It is a five speed 470,000 km, body and frame is awesome.  ARB air lockers 2 inch old man emu lift 33 inch cooper Discoverers. Really cool truck here’s a pic, somewhere around $15k
