Have a spot for old Toyotas too. Had a 1991, loved that thing!

If you can't fix it with a hammer, It must be electrical.

The house got painted.  Why not the truck?

I came home one day, my wife had bought some paint and started painting the house...with no prep or warning, also it was late fall and 4 degrees celcius.  To avoid a divorce I just left again and went to the liqour store. I figure i will just pressure wash it next summer and repaint it after most flakes off. At least shes taking an intrest in home improvement?

 :groaner:

Thanks for the comments. Will resume after Christmas!

I had planned to get it running and sell it for a dream musclecar


I'm thinking even though Toyota's hold their value, you dream car for that kind of money would more likely be a nightmare :))


Keep posting as you make progress, should be a fun build and a great learning experience for you

Starting to take shape, filled in some old bolt holes and stuff today.

Us Canadians are a hardy lot,  or stupid... take your pick.  That and liquor helps.  Be the liquor.

Those trucks are getting harder and harder to find and people are paying stupid money for them.
I saw an ad on kijiji for a few months where a guy was looking for a T100 in any condition anywhere is BC, AB and Sask.
He was even offering a finders fee to anyone that could find him one.
I'm just a guy in a garage with some tools...

Cool project! I have an 86 2WD Toyota that I need to get after the rust on, before it gets out of hand.



Also of note for the last post, the dirty rear wheel. That is gear oil, the seal i replaced did not last.

You might want to unscrew and check the vent fitting on your differential if you are blowing wheel seals.

Yeah if you keep blowing seals, you breather is blocked up.
