This is the last page we have so far. I will update when we get more.
Cooler bracket finished and painted, ready for permanent mounting.
Toyota factory open lug nuts to fit my OEM wheel/ARP extended stud combo.
RS master cylinder, proportioning valves, and lines
This kit will delete the ABS unit and free up some space against the firewall for my 12V battery. Upon inspecting the brake lines (which are OEM with 144k miles), I noticed a few wear spots. That will not do, so I got some SS braided lines as well. I also ordered some rebuilt calipers from detective coating in a similar silver/black color scheme. Given the history of this vehicle, I thought it best to not cut corners on the brake system.
A contrast of textures. Using only iron for the mount would have allowed for welds instead of hardware, but to keep it lightweight I used a combination of aluminum and iron.
Firewall looking bare with ABS deleted. RS master cylinder and lines installed. Couldn't find tq specs for proportioning valves :confused:
Extensive bracket arrangement including 4 mounting points and 2 retention bar anchor points.
Painted and installed. It supports 4 100Ah LiFePO4 cells secured by a non-conductive plastic retention bar. Barely visible underneath is an engine harness block off plate I fabricated on the firewall, also painted black.
My front sub frame has some damage and distortion. I'm not sure if it's from the collision or just the result of abuse and 144k rough miles. I've been on the lookout for a replacement and one just happened to pop up on ebay recently. I grabbed it.
Yanked the old unit out.
New one arrived, needs some cleaning.
After noticing some bent metal on the old subframe, I also purchased a new rear tranny mount base, peace of mind really.
I thought it's time to address all the bushings in the subframe. Steering rack, sway bar, control arm, ball joints and tie rod ends are all being replaced with whiteline or energy suspension offerings.
Whiteline inner bushings, roll center adjusted ball joints, and energy suspension rear bushings going in.
