Well I picked it up a week or two ago now from Stumog (top lad ) but only managed so start driving it two days ago due to a issue with my insurance company !

Its a 1997 LWB Prado TX (Intercooled, automatic and plenty of gadgets ).

The plan is to get it how I want it (im a tad ocd / autistic with certain things) but to mainly keep it practical as its a daily work vehicle and a tow vehicle to me.

So far all seems good but got a couple of things I need to change so was wodering on some advice ?

The speedo currently under reads so im assuming it needs a more accurate MPH conversion face - does anyone have experience of any in particular ?

Also im going to remove the parking mirror and the side steps and put them into storage as althoug pratical it seems I dont really need them so no point in lugging them around all the time !

Also need to get on the case with checking the starting and charging systems and it seems tad hard to start in the mornings. Not sure if its just me having come from a twin battery Surf to a single battery Land Cruiser or if there is something that needs tinkering with ?!

More long term im thinking temperature gauges, diff breathers, autobox cooler and parking camera !

Pictues will come tomorrow when the work begins
