  1. I don't see much point in an axle running over the top so it can't be loaded with stuff in the middle. I've seen trailers with those flexi arm rubber square duratorque things. They have a pricetag though and i don't think they are adjustable. Best i've seen was a trailer with airbags. It was for loading things but, you know...
  2. A rich guy i know had someone carve a plywood center console & had it covered to look orig'. If you run out of options.

    Best thing to clean out a fuel tank?

    Steel BBs from the sport shop and pull them out with a magnet.

    I've tumbled things strapped to a car wheel before, let it idle for an hour on stands. Don't recommend it.

    Fj40 chassis rust

    Heat it & beat it. If it stands up to that then sandblast & treat it. May have a few holes to patch. But then i've patch up land rovers worse than that & they're horrible rust magnets.

    Product sounds good. And a drafty shed helps dry things out.

    Best way to attach a bracket to heater motor

    Or solder. Or drill small indents in the housing for grip & use an epoxy.

    My car had nothing inside the body when it was new. A light coat of surface rust, even after all 60 years was all it had and most of that still had shiny metal visible. To treat it? Fish oil. I still have half a can of it. Spray it inside with one of those air powered car sprayer things, i have a spare one of those too.

    A panel beater i know doesn't bother with the gutters. He welds up the roof or pillar & puts a gutter on afterwards. And his personal hilux was worse than that. Give it time & attention i'm 90% sure you'll figure out how to fix it.

    Arduino stuff/ programing/so cheap

    Haha. Was trying to hook it up to my little transmitter. It was based on blink.

    Arduino stuff/ programing/so cheap

    COM 4 wasn't responding, i re-installed the drivers and plugged it into a different serial port and it started responding again as COM 5. Stupidly forgot to test which fix it was. I'll just guess a cooked my USB port by plugging it in while the car was running. Beats me why this doesn't flash at 20ms intervals

    What does this mean? Did i fry it again?
  14. Weld. Machine for whatever wheel nuts suit the car, or whatever is available. Plugs on wheel stud holes sounds kind of dumb.

    If you want cheap and better than spray can, try wattyl killrust brushed on. It doesn't last forever, but it does ok out of the sunlight. Lasts about 10 years. I think it comes in spray cans too, but i'm not really sure if that's good value for money.
