Now for what's been done since summer :

A/C system was fixed and a new compressor was installed (clutch was sticking and the system needed to be converted to r134) and new fittings for LP and HP.
Since I don't have the hardware required to do this job, I had my local Toyota Dealership do it (very nice chaps !).

Wow! Looking good with those seat covers. New?
While you have the shifter off, you could replace your tranny floid with synthetic and simply pour it in the shifter hole.

Seat Covers are new from the 2000s, it was a group order apparently, bought and installedby one of the previous owners.

Wait hang on a second... you can change your transmission fluid from here ?? That would be an easy job then...

You still have to drain it from down under but you can refill from here.
TIL, that's a great bit of knowledge right there (never done transmission fluid changes before)... I'll make sure to do that before putting the shifter back in !

TSRM recommends GL-4/5 SAE 75W-90 or 80W-90 for the oil... What's the rating yall use ?

(EDITED: deleted ref to another oil)
Many will say RedLine MT-90.

1- Remove 'normal' filling bolt driver side, mid hight. It is also used as level indicator.
2- Remove drain plug on the bottom let it drain.
3- Reinstall drain plug
4- Fill until spilling from side plug
5- Reinstall side plug.

... next will be the diff?

Ah good point, starts spilling on the filling hole when it's full.

Diff... I might need to rebuild it or at least open it to check for looseness somewhere (that knock I have when going from first to second and first to reverse sometimes...)

While waiting for Billy's bushing kit, installed center console decals (a bit of an amateur job... but will do the trick for now, could do a better job with alignment, one letter got clipped and the clear coat with a brush on the fog light button came out too rough).
At least it beats having faded out decals !

Also test fitted an OEM shift boot received from Japan ! Perfect fit, looks a tad out of place without wear 😅.

Not sure if the carpet is still off, but you might consider some sound proofing. Be Quiet may be still around. It's a sticky, rubbery product that helps with road noise.

Carpet was never off actually, the interior is in very good condition so I don't want to do unecessary work :D

I was able to peek at the factory soundproofing when removing the seats though, and I think it's still in good shape :
