Factory Stripes Gone

After 23 years the factory stripes were faded and chips, especially the passenger side.
I had tried heat gun and goof off when I saw a thread some where about a drill powered adhesive remover. Watch some video on YouTube and decided to order one for $10 off amazon

I found out I have a water leak into the cab somewhere.
I will diagnose the source later this week.

ARB Intensity LED Lightbar Installed 3-3-2017
I may be the first rig in the USA to have this new lightbar, as the container at ARB was just unpacked Wednesday, and they are just a few blocks from the shop I deal with.

Click the link to see all six of my pictures.

Nice, Robb! Wanna do that with my tired stripes, too, after I do my functional projects (valve cover gasket seepage, seal the gutter/pinch welds).

Cool, Corey. I'm also converting to tool pouches/rolls that I can stash inside the rear body panels, instead of space-consuming, thief-magnet tool box.
And I think your roof-top tent creates less drag than the boxy packaging of many others.

got my 3.0 2WD oil pan parts need to make clearance for the straight axle conversion of the 4Runner.
Used a parts list from a 15 year old post on pirate, surprisingly prices hadn't gone up a huge amount and it was good to find out they were all still available
I looked at a few discount toyota sites and they were all priced very close to each other.
ended up getting them from https://www.toyotapartsdeal.com/
ordered on March 1st, had them by 3/6..

Added a Krazy Beaver "Murder Spork" diecut sticker to the passenger side of my ARB bumper, actually yesterday.
This rounds out the Lifestyle Overland diecut sticker I have on the drivers side of the bumper.
Also have the murder spork sticker on one of my Aluboxes.







Was going to move my fire extinguisher from the drop down table on my rear door over to the MPac Siderack for the Powertank, but I do not think the weather will hold.
Suppose to start raining before long.
Tomorrow looks like better weather to attack that.

I want to move it as whenever I want to drop the table down, you have to remove the fire extinguisher.

Relocated fire extinguisher for the 4th time, and mounted a Fiskars axe to the rear door table rack
