Getting back into the FJ40 full steam, finished seals in gearbox, put gearbox back in, fitted sump, cleaned, cleaned, cleaned for painting engine and gearbox. Been going from about 10am-10pm.


Photo's without the flash look a lot more smoother.


More parts from Roodog. Tail lights, exhaust gasket, various seals for gearbox and tranfser case.


Put the gearbox back together with new seals/gaskets.


Cleaned up the transfer case and painted handbrake drum.


Spent ages cleaning off the old sump gasket.


Fitted painted sump, was kinda tricky with one person and 22 bolts.


Wax & Grease remover prior to painting. Put the gearbox back in.


Looking fairly clean.


Started spraying the engine.


Keeping the temperature up with the halogen lights.


Looking good. Engine + gearbox painted.


Finally got rid of that rust colour which was on everything.
