    FJ55 door re-skin?

    The rust looks worse than it really is. I wire wheeled it and plan to put a rust neutralizer on it and some POR15.

    FJ55 door re-skin?

    Took my drivers door off to measure and trace hinge holes/location. Found this door is as bad if not worse than the passenger door. Decided to make a new/better template for replacement door skin before I tear into this one too.

    In a few months, CBT is going to look at the customer satisfaction reviews and be like WTF happened?

    FJ55 door re-skin?

    FJ55 door re-skin?

    I have played around with metal for a few years, strictly as a hobby but it’s truthfully my first sheet metal repair. Guess all those hours of watching Motor Trend TV are paying off. I’m from Phoenix Arizona. Used to roll with the Copper State Cruisers but have not had a Land Cruiser to take...

    FJ55 door re-skin?

    First time I have tried making a door skin. Now I just need the @bobm approval! Did the work on my sheet metal brake. Decided it might be easier to repeat the lines in the door with a bead roller. Picked up extra metal today to make one. Will also need to make some custom dies. Yet another...

    Also could not find the hem @bobm was referring to. Perhaps I misunderstood where he was referring to.
