So glad it got saved
Bucky had an exciting weekend. I replaced all the coolant hoses, flushed radiator, fixed horns, got all the lights working (including the dome light), replaced fuel sender, new wiper blades and cup holders. Just got it tagged and insured. It has taken me a year to get to this point but I'm happy to say that Bucky is now a man about town!

anyone that's dealt with leaks on the FJ62 before... I found my leak:

I sprayed the hell out of the car and about 5-10 minutes later, water started coming in from this area behind the passenger side kick panel. Should that space be open or would it be an indicator of something else?

Thanks!

Cowl area seam sealer is going bad, and/or the rain gutter is sealant is bad. I've got the same issue right now.

Rain gutter you can do from the exterior, but for the cowl area seam sealer, you have to pull the front outer fender.

thank you! think it might be the former. i removed the sealer on the passenger side last weekend and filled it with some permatex as a temporary solution (going to do some rust repair soon). probably didn't do the best job on it but seems solid.

anyone want to help me pull a fender? i only have screwdrivers until i move from my 400 sq ft studio :bang:

Yeah, you can come by my place at some point and we can do ours together. Booked this weekend and next, but pm me and we'll figure something out.
