Well ive had a few slow days at work and i was able to work on my fenders. I used some of that jasco epoxy remover to remove the bedliner crap from the fenders. It worked pretty good but still had a rough time getting it off.

Tax refund came and i was finally able to put some money in to the luv. I was never able to figure out why the charging system wasnt working properly so i took it to a auto electric shop in stockton. They fixed all the electrical on it so now im running and got the luv on the road. They told me i wasnt getting any ignition power to the regulator, they also fixed my turn signals, and my back up switch. Ill be putting in my weber and my intake later on this week.

Hey Juan,
Can anyone write on these threads or you keeping all the comments to yourself... :lol: ..j/kin

I just seen that this one was yours & happen to catch the manual encouragement comment ..THANKS
You'll see it will help shine more light in what areas your working on....

I have been thinking about starting one as well... as soon as i sort out this scattered hard drive. i'll start one up

Do you have more than 1 LUV(74)
one for you girl maybe ?? Sounds like it when you wrote "Well I've been working on her luv this year"

Did you ever get the off manifold on ..I believe it does take adapters ..the ones that were made/sold thru here came w/ hardware kit.
I have gotten one yet...got one lined up should have it next month or so..after next smog i'll pull that stuff and try it smog-less between smog test.
