FJ’s Back

DSCF9457DSCF9455The FJ is back from the metal shop.  After a good long while at the metal shop it is finally structurally sound. This FJ 55 had new rockers, new cab mounts, new patches for the fenders, doors and quarters as well as rear fender well openings replaced while it was away. There was also some rust in the hood repaired as well as in between the upper and lower fender. Most of those parts had to be fabricated but the rockers were available new. Another thing that made this job a little more difficult was that some of these areas that were patched up, had been patched up before. So in most cases on this particular job, all of the old panel was removed to allow for just one patch instead of a patch inside of a patch. This just makes for a nicer job. Now it is our turn to get this awesome piece of Toyota history looking nice again. These things are virtually unstoppable. Our plan is to make it look good while doing it.
