    The Kamikaizen Great Unpoochening

    Late morning motivation kicked in and I finally got around to a little mod I've been wanting for a long time. It's pretty simple: Fan pattern windshield sprayers! Only problem; pre-89 hood means pre-89 nozzle footprint. So to tackle that I cut out a section of my RAV4's old hood to use for a...

    The Kamikaizen Great Unpoochening

    They're not new; I just spruced up the original ones by carefully using a brass detail brush to fluff the nap on them back up. I'm not sure if they're even still available from the dealer though I'm pretty certain the exterior trim with its two felt pads is NLA. YotaMD has a video on Youtube...

    The Kamikaizen Great Unpoochening

    This is a small update, but one that's been needed especially since Colorado has evidently been in its monsoon season lately. Long story short, the driver window regulator is shot to shit. The glass doesn't go all the way up, nor does it stay level, and the motor gear of course pops enough to...

    The Kamikaizen Great Unpoochening

    All right! An update, fuck yeah! Anyways. Long story short, that fuel pump was le toast. I suspected it was going out, and after comparing resistance of it - a whopping 18.5ohm - against my new Denso TT pump at 1.3ohm pretty much confirmed it, since electrically everything upstream was...

    The Kamikaizen Great Unpoochening

    Well...less of an update than I wanted, and far later than I'd've preferred. Long story short: I buggered the crap out of my wrist somehow, ECU tendon slipped free and I had to be put in a cast for a month, and now I am in physical therapy trying to get my range of movement back. It's been an...

    The Kamikaizen Great Unpoochening

    OKay so, fair bit of time passed and not much of an update. But, after I yanked the turbo previously I found the wires to one of my aircon switches was snapped off at the top of what looked like the switch body. Luckily both are still available from Toyota so I snagged fresh units, because why...

    The Kamikaizen Great Unpoochening

    Surprisingly the stock BOV works! At the least it doesn't appear to be leaking when I tested it anyway, but I might just give myself some peace of mind and throw a Bosch recirculated valve on there in the near future. One small correction I did do is replace the check valve for the IAC. For...

    The Kamikaizen Great Unpoochening

    It's been a fairly long while since I introduced myself and my $1100 basket case. In that time I have been waging war against Previous Owner Repairs™and have finally come close to having an MA70 that's willing to be a car on a consistent basis. So, onward with The Saga So Far: There she is...

    Second-time owner with a new rescue mission

    Hey everyone! A long while ago I used to have a pretty simple MA70; n/a hard top sport package. Never was a performer but I absolutely loved her and it broke my heart when I had to give her up after suffering a BHG and not having any means to repair it at the time. Fast forward to now-ish...
