Thanks!

Tonight I came home to an empty house after the Jenny creek workday so you bet I was back in the garage after scarfing down some dinner.

I had to massage the window regulators I got from cruiser corps to get them to go up and down nicely but I finally got them working and got the front door glass in both sides. The factory regulators were shot and they are NLA so aftermarket was pretty much my only option there.. I did use a new set of Toyota window runs as well as Toyota seals on the inside and outside of the windows at the bottom. The glass isn't perfect but it's factory glass so it's staying. It cleaned up pretty well with some steel wool and windex. That's the same thing I did for the rest of the glass also.

Lastly I noticed in all the pictures of factory trucks the bolts for the windshield hinges weren't painted with the body, and mine were weird aftermarket ones (CCOT)... so I replaced them with new OEM ones. The stainless bolts from overland metric, which I also got but didn't use, were a perfect match... so that's pretty awesome.

OEM mirrors on! That was an easy win.

The stock truck had tar paper on the floorboards so I went ahead and put some down on this one. It's not exactly like it was stock but it's close. The stock truck had it down on the bare metal then painted but I wanted paint under it so it's slightly out of order. I used Wurth material since it looked like the best close to OEM option and I like their products. I was hesitant to put it down but I actually like it. I still need to do the other side, but the passenger side is done!

Is that like a Dynamat equivalent? It's looking fantastic.

Yes it's similar in function to something like Dynamat.

So I took a few steps back last night, the roll bar I made from an older one by removing the set belt brackets from my old one and welding them on. Well, i got them backwards. an easy way to fix it will be to just flip the roll bar around and put the pads on the other side. I'll have to weld up the little holes for the pads on the front side and get it re powder coated....

Also, I discovered that the seat belt mount bolts are all 7/16"-20tpi. I ordered a tap to chase the seatbelt threads in various parts. I need to wait on the tap before I finish the heater inside since the heater is super close to the mount points. I also ran out of the sound deadening so I need to wait on more of that to get here now.

I thought that thread size was interesting.

The 7/16-20 is suggested in Federal vehicle safety laws. Why they might choose SAE instead of metric equivalent, no idea. Could be only U.S. vehicle had it or they just choose it not to give an inspector any reason to question it. The rule itself mixes SAE and metric, which is also weird.

571.209 S4.1(f)

https://www.ecfr.gov/cgi-bin/text-id..._1209&rgn=div8

If the link doesn't work:

Quote:
(f) Attachment hardware. A seat belt assembly shall include all hardware necessary for installation in a motor vehicle in accordance with SAE Recommended Practice J800c (1973) (incorporated by reference, see 571.5). However, seat belt assemblies designed for installation in motor vehicles equipped with seat belt assembly anchorages that do not require anchorage nuts, plates, or washers, need not have such hardware, but shall have 7/16-20 UNF-2A or 1/2-13 UNC-2A attachment bolts or equivalent metric hardware. The hardware shall be designed to prevent attachment bolts and other parts from becoming disengaged from the vehicle while in service. Reinforcing plates or washers furnished for universal floor, installations shall be of steel, free from burrs and sharp edges on the peripheral edges adjacent to the vehicle, at least 1.5 mm in thickness and at least 2580 mm2 in projected area. The distance between any edge of the plate and the edge of the bolt hole shall be at least 15 mm. Any corner shall be rounded to a radius of not less than 6 mm or cut so that no corner angle is less than 135 and no side is less than 6 mm in length.

Yep that's correct Dave... Also there is a lot of discussion online that suggests the bolts are actually m11x1.25 and they are super close but not correct. A 1.25mm pitch gauge rocks back and forth on the threads, unable to fully seat.

standard sizing goes all the way back to the early cruisers apparently, because annie was standard also
