    AJT can not manufacture the steering wheel emblems any longer. Amazon has some that will fit. I have one on my truck and the 4Runner.

    Got my two 10 gal tanks (mostly) fabricated today. I purchased a single 10' piece of 4" PVC, intending to make 5' tanks. It wasn't until I got home that I discovered one end of the pipe was a 'bell' end. Well, I ended up 3.5" short, so back to Lowes to find the shortest piece of pipe they got.
    20240402_164439.jpg I installed baffles, two per tank, to hopefully mitigate sloshing effects.

    Is this just for cleanup/Wash off, or for potable?
    Be very careful about using air pressure in PVC to pressurize…especially out in the sun and heat.

    Wash. Tootsies, titties, tooshies, and tires. Probably get a Wavian setup for potable. Agreed on pressurizing, I'll be installing a RV style, on-demand pump in a pistol case, and it will hang where the traction boards are now.

    I feel like this deserves a camp fire story.

    I never had any catastrophic failures with the hairspray versions I had growing up… though the threaded cap did go ballistic a few times.

    Going to be overhauling my brake system pretty soon. Looking to maybe throw some of the POR paint on the calipers. What’s the consensus on a brake color for this motif? I’m thinking black or silver.IMG_1548.jpg

    @BlueRibbon4x4 just did the blue. I think that would look nice, its not too bright, not too visible, but just adds a little color.
    If that isn't of interest, I'd say black over silver. They are basically silver now :anonymous:

    They are basically silver indeed. What I would hope to see if I painted them silver would be that brake dust easily streaming off of a smoother surface than what the caliper currently has. Who knows though? Pie in the sky?

    They’re definitely smoother. The Por15 lays down pretty thick. I vote blue too. It dries much lighter than it looks in the can. IMG_0067.jpg

    That does look pretty close to cav blue. I guess blue is in the mix now. Thanks for the pic!

    Yessir! It has that pastel overtone, just darker. It would definitely look great with Cavalry. :thumbsup:

    I normally don't suggest garbage options :rofl:


    But I'm always a fan of adding some blue if it works.

    Make sure you add a couple extra torques to the cam nuts so you don’t blow it out on Sunday
