      I'd love to drive your 40, amazed that you are going 75 MPH in that thing - we're just too damned far away!. I'm a little scared at 50MPH in mine. I'll be doing the brakes (currently it's 4 wheel drums) and the steering/suspension hasn't been...

      Been busy times for the Skreddy’s the last month. Been trying to sell our house since June, got listed basically the day the market froze. But all of a sudden 3 weeks ago, we got an offer and they wanted a 2 week close! The house was no big deal...

      I hear that man. Hard to find the time to work on the 40. Balancing work, kids, wives, and girlfriends is a tough business. These things have really increased in value lately, I’m sure you’ll get a decent price. Consider a couple of things though...

      So therapeutic to watch the progress. It all takes so much work, time, and money. It’s looking great! Excited to hear about your first drive in it. After doing all the work you will love driving it, even if it’s a rough ride. Keep up the wicked work!

      Nice cruiser man! It’ll be fun and encouraging watching you build yours out to where you want it.

      Looks great - apologize for the striker scare - I got my years confused.

      Well I feel like an idiot! I don’t have my years down enough to be commenting apparently. Glad it worked out, and it does look good.

      The actual picture is of a 76 striker, the picture from SOR is a striker from a pre 75 door, they are different.

      Once upon a time I bought most from CCOT, they were decent quality…I’d buy from them again, you could first call the stealership and see what they have, but CCOT’s website is nice, SOR is also a nice site to get breakdowns from. Good luck.

      You will need the different latch style for the doors to catch And close/remain closed properly

      Skreddy, curious how your efficiency worked out after you corrected the vacuum issue with the sniper. How’s it running after driving it for a while, considering going to same direction as you - I like that you can “train” the computer, been...

      I think you actually caught the issue, believe this was just really cheap filler I bought at Canadian tire, or maybe even a local home hardware. Never even thought there was different qualities of filler - Oh, to be young again. Thank you for this.

      iam_turner reacted to h82crash's post in the thread Best ways to paint an fj40 with Like Like.
      Yes it can. Next go round use a better filler. Rage Gold or 3M Premium Platinum Plus. You have to make sure your metal is clean and 80 grit scuff for the filler to have a good bond. A lot of people today say to apply filler to epoxy primer, but...

      Made it to the end, but am definitely looking for more. Been great reading through your projects. I love your careful taste of budget/mind blowing positive change. Wish I had your time, motivation, and ingenuity. Super cool/clean cruiser.

      I'm with White Stripe on this.... You just need to find one more donor and you will have the makings of two nice 40s! Not sure, but I think this is where the term 'slippery slope' comes into play. Not to fear, an 8274 (ir two) will remedy the...

      I agree. That one doesn’t look too bad. Would be a pretty good candidate for getting back on the road or at least the trail. Good luck whatever you decide.

      Body filler can crack over time, esp. on body panels that flex. That looks like body fill failure to me, FWIW.
    • iam_turner
      A slippery slope indeed - Not helping with he decisions. Though I kind of like that Idea as I can enjoy one while I work on the other, that way The 40 can still be enjoyed. Hmm…
    • iam_turner
      Which part of Ontario, wow, you are brave, they sure look sweet when all put back together. Am going to follow along on this, looks like you can do a lot yourself which will save some big dollars in the build.

      Took my 71 down to bare metal with wire wheel and 5” angle grinder, used sand blaster for small areas that I couldn’t get with the angle grinder. Used endura primer and paint…I’m not too sure what we did wrong, the finish only last about 4 years...

      Great read, fun to see the progress, hopefully my 2F will be as much of a success...Thanks for sharing.
    • iam_turner
      Thanks mister. Am pretty sure they are not split rims. Not sure I'll keep them. Am hoping to pull the 2F out and stick it in my 1970, before doing so, I'll look to see how much work it would be to get the starter out of my 1970 and stick it in...
    • iam_turner
      Look like 15" mini-truck wheels. I'd be getting that 2f running asap, if only to know what you have there. You just don't know. Look at my post from 2 weeks ago about 'reviving a 2f from the woods'. My total unknown turned out to be a total...
    • iam_turner
      Many good parts, congrats mate! ... and some good rims: do they are the (sought after) non split version?
