...she noticed all dashboard lights came on and she claims she turned of the engine, i believe the engine turned its self off
Update : so she’s lucky that the engine is an 8 valve engine. We looked everywhere, tested everything and the engine is not damaged. It’s running right now. She got really really lucky.

I didn’t do this, but spoke to a tech that said it’s safe “since the leaf springs are connected to the frame”
Engine still runs like a top. Valves rattle like hell.
The outside was actually almost as bad
[Had to unbolt the glass rack and pry it out]
He wanted to sue the “ guy on Facebook “ I work at a Lexus Dealership & he was coming in to get everything restored.
