blakefogt's 1987 4Runner Build-Up Thread

Hey guys,
this is my first post..
I picked up a 4runner last saturday.. my dad used to take me offroading about 10 years ago and I knew I had to get one eventually.
here it is



Its not the turbo model, the previous owner put the gauges in there for the tach.. he also gave me the stock one if i ever want to put that back in

the radiator had a small leak on the top left corner so I decided it was a good time to start fresh and get a little bit thicker of one

Thanks, yea he said he liked to see numbers... I dont really mind them... the only really lame part is their backlights are green, while the dash is that old yellowish orange color.

thats easy on the autometer just should be able to pull the gauge out of the holder and it will have a twist on/off light bulb just pull it out and pull the bulb cover off. simple fix.

i didnt really have time actually.

I go to UTI from 6AM to noon and work 1230ish to 5 and today i did the alignment. I did pop it out. it actually had a metal bar behind it so i had to take of the pillar cover thing off and then saw that a washer was blocking the light bulb and I was just too tired to f*** with it. so I decided to do it another day. but it looked pretty simple

that bar on the back does have to be there. we never used them when we put gauges in. but its all personal choose. i think that there a pain in the rear. i like to be able to pull them out with out taking everything off. and they are easy. just twist off. and i know the school thing i went to wyotech and are days were from 715 to 430 5 days a week. that gets old having class for 8 hours a day.
