      coinoperated40 reacted to Brody1973's post in the thread New to the forum with Like Like.
      Hello, New to the forum. I acquired a 1976 FJ40 a few months ago after years of searching. I am a long time Toyota enthusiast. I always wanted an FJ40 but was either unable to find one in decent condition or within my budget. My father I...

      Thank all who have looked and commented on the item for sale. Funny stuff 😂 Please feel free to come look at the top and doors. I am open to a FAIR price and being educated on what is a fair price. Came to that asking price after looking on...

      Correct. By "bottle," I meant CO2/Argon mix. When you get a new welder, it will come with a roll of flux wire. Also included will be a gas regulator. You'll have to verify the polarity of the connections in the machine and make sure the...

      In past projects I have had some success with a Siphon Feed Abrasive Blaster. My small compressor struggles to keep up. Larger air compressor would certainly help. It does make a mess, so you definitely want to use it outside.

      Got to weld for the first time tonight. SPCC has a class that allows you to come in and practice for up to 24 hours a semester. $100 well spent

      I was watching a video and this guy had a steel paint mixing stick with a wood handle. Cool! After a good search starting with metal paint mixers, cake decorating knives on Amazon. $11. Large one is perfect for gallon can. Dont understand why...

      My next step is to separate the donor into its inner and outer component parts and clean and remove any rust. I have an electrolytic rust removal bath that I use for this. This does a nice job of removing any rust, including rust in hidden spots...

      Get the Hobart. I had one for at least 10 years with zero trouble. Mine was setup for gas and ran on 110v. When I upgraded, I gave it to my brother and he still uses it. You can weld most anything on a 110 machine, you just need to bevel...

      There are deals out there to be had on welding equipment. I just picked this machine up last night and I am super-stoked about it. Found it on FB Marketplace in Albemarle. Looks brand new, but it is several years old. Hobart discontinued the...

      It works pretty well. Also, repost? They are never perfect by any means, but they are good enough. A few tricks / the steps I have found by doing several of these. Things you will (probably) need: welder, a set of dollies and body hammers, a...

      @coinoperated40 I haven’t taken any diagonal measurements but I will. It would seem that if it’s not square then the other sides of the panel wouldn’t look as uniform in relation to the sides as they do though? Not sure if it’s clear in the...

      ^^ What he said. Used my old cheese one as a template for the new one. Clamped together for fit and hole drilling. Worked great

      Well I’m not out in the snow today but I’m working with ice. Finishing stripping the factory insulation out in preparation for full sound deadening and new carpet kit. Lots of work being done on the truck lately. Dry ice makes it so I can strip...

      coinoperated40 replied to the thread Aftermarket fiberglass rooftop options.
      Just thinking… Have you taken any diagonal measurements of both the top and the 40? As to see if everything is square. From screw hole to screw hole. With everything bolted together, it should show what may be out of wack. Speaking from past...

      Those were better. They don't make them like they used to, but these are fine. Not sure this is the right forum, but adding this info on Mud so others can find it in the future. Sheepskin cover info and options for FJ40s seem to be pretty...

      The great thing about a 40 is it is a big boys or girls erector set. Everything come apart and can be put back together. Box not included.

      Not much of an audiophile but I used this Bluetooth speaker. First it fit perfectly in the radio hole, but I moved it around and eventually ended using Velcro on the dash nearest me and it works great. It’s plugged to charger on cig lighter so...
