    Default Prestige ski area, Project Ski Patrol Landcruiser

    So I've always wanted an fj40 Landcruiser and now I have one. It had to be red of course so that made the search a little more difficult. Plans are basically to get it sorted and working properly so i can drive it to work and take it offroading.

    For those looking for a frame off resto mod please stop reading now because you won't find it here lol.

    So here she is:

    First order of business.. get the electrical working properly.. Joe at autotech has suggested a new wiring harness, the search begins for a wiring harness lol.


    Classic 70s interior with a shot out windshield.


    A bullet and a vintage watch found behind the dash... awesome


    More interior shots


    Here is after I painted it, I used a roller and some rustoleum paint... My services are for hire


    You'll soon see why this build is titled project ski patrol. Stay tuned.

    Sick build Ryan! Are you going to use it out on the trails?

    With this and the 1M is the MR2 going into hibernation for another decade?

    Great classic truck. Good on you for doing a roller paint job; I did that twice and both had marginal results - but I was entirely too lazy to do a good wetsanding job. It can actually turn out quite decent if done right.

    If you can ditch the Warn hubs and get some AISIN ones. By the way, how do the knuckles look? Might be a good idea for a full front axle rebuild (seals, gaskets, wheel bearings and knuckle bearings). Check out marlincrawler.com for all your Toyota truck needs.

    Truck looks good. I'm planning on selling my Soob and getting an 80 series from the states as a DD.
