    Spot on, it came from a coast guard base. The rack is really well made, thought it was some type of factory option. Thanks for the info.

    Wow! love it. Where did you find the aluminum black storage box? What is that small grill in front of the rear right tire? Sorry for all the questions.

    I want to say that is a stock cover... or at least one of the stock options. Mine has that too.

    Here is recent pictures of mine along with my other ride. Today I drilled and fitted fake Japanese kei plates for car show use. Also recently installed scooter mirrors to replace the huge stock ones. IMG_20150627_200507.jpg IMG_20150627_200642.jpg

    image.jpg New guy here. Glad I found this forum as I have lots of questions. Here's my 2001 I picked up last week. I think I have checked it over pretty good except - My power assist steering (eps) light is on and the power assist is not working and I think my AC needs charging. Anybody know where the fuse/relay is for the eps and what kind or refrigerant it takes?? Thanks

    Hi all. New to this forum but not to mini trucks. Here’s a few pictures of my truck that I’ve been building for the last few years.

    My 91 I bought last week.

    Worst rust is at the corners of the windshield under the gasket.

    These two bolt-holes in the bumper area are a mystery to me... any idea what they're for?

    Rust streams coming from the handles... Springs rusting, or? Should I replace them before they fail?

    Hardware on the bed is pretty rusty too. Any recommendations on ways to clean it off?

    Interior is pretty good, a few seat tears is all.

    Tires have an ok amount of tread but a lot of cracking... honestly surprised it passed inspection (seller had it inspected last month), on the lookout for the best options for replacements when needed (road vehicle atm, don't need offroading tires).

    Rustoleum rust reformer works well on surface rust. Sand smooth, spray a coat on, then paint whatever color you want over it. The gate latches are replaceable and can be found on several sites. Bolt holes are for front plate.

    Actually just finished fixing all the body scratches/chips/rust with rust reformer and rustoleum auto enamel spraypaint and Spray in bed liner. There's some overspray and paint running that I'll probably clear up with some wet sanding and clearcoat in the future, but for now I'm happy.

    Undercarriage looks alright. Outer area of the brake drums on a couple wheels look pretty rusty, but I'm not thinking I'll try removing the wheels yet. Maybe when I replace them/the tires.

    Also, everything I'm seeing online says that the smallest wheel on 1991 hijets was 12"... are these replacement 10" wheels or what?
