Re: CITROA Body Panels for LJ80/81

Just got an update from FedEx, the other parts will be delivered today. I'll try to get some pics of them packed (so people can see how well they are packed), and again after I unwrap them. May not be until after the holiday though; I have a lot going on this week and next.

Re: CITROA Body Panels for LJ80/81

FedEx dropped off the fender this morning, but not the hood or bib. Very well packed!

FedEx still shows "delivery by 11/16", but that the shipment is n Seattle, so hopefully the rest shows up in the next day or so.

Re: CITROA Body Panels for LJ80/81

Ok the topic has been split.

I received an update this afternoon, saying the panels would be shipped next Wednesday, Nov. 7. (I ordered and paid for them last Tuesday, so about a week to process the order.) So far, so good... 8)

CITROA Body Panels for LJ80/81

Comments in other threads got me thinking about this again, so I thought I would update this thread. I'm planning to repaint my LJ81 soon, after I repair some rust. The passenger fender is rusted, and I found where a PO repaired rust in the past, so I decided to just order a new fender. While I was ...

Pretty sure it'll fit, but I'd have to measure to be sure.

Re: LJ20 transfer case mounts (cross-compatibility w/LJ50 or LJ80?)

I think that's a little short. I measured one this morning and it is about 113mm from center to center, or 4.45".

Couple of videos from the trip. These got posted to FB, but I just realized I never linked them here.

Re: LJ Interior Courtesy Light

They are no longer available from my local Suzuki dealer, but I was able to order one from Japan last year for my mom's LJ80.

Re: LJ20 transfer case mounts (cross-compatibility w/LJ50 or LJ80?)

The LJ50/80 transfer case mounts will not work; the base is longer than the LJ20 mount.

I'm not sure if a Samurai boot will fit for that lower boot. I can still order the boot new though. It runs about $15.

Re: LJ Interior Courtesy Light

Good info Tom, thanks! I bet that is a lot brighter than the stock light too!

For those who want all original, the stock interior light assy. is still available (or at least it was last year.)

Re: Wiring the Samurai distributor in LJ80

From your description it sounds like you have the same setup, except the pink wire may be a different color. Can you post pics of your set up?

Great story and a beautiful picture! Looks like a good area for an LJ get together... :wink: Watch out for mountain lions - we had a fatal attack here a couple of weeks ago. First one in nearly 100 years, but the cougar attacked two guys on mountain bikes, they fought him off, and after they were ri...

Why did you go to Asia? What Part?

Who was it that lived in Japan? I called him and talked to him on the phone back then. Russ?

Re: Moab - April 2018

Yes we did. Mid 70's to low 80's every day. Saw some thunderheads the day we were in Arches, but the rain was evaporating before it hit the ground. We got a few drops that night but that was all.

Re: Moab - April 2018

We're in Sand Flats, B15 and 16. There is no stock 15" wheel except the Tacoma wheels and the 15x4.5" wheels on the LJ20V. I have a set of 4 16" wheels with tires with me.

Re: Moab - April 2018

I'm heading out this afternoon, should get to Moab sometime tomorrow evening. I might be interested in the single Tacoma wheel; I have two sets of four but am using five of them (including my spare). I think I have a set of stock (16x4.5") wheels I can throw on the trailer in case you make it.
