I bought a rear sil fit my 1971 FJ40 FST. I had a shop cut the old one out and weld in the new one. They also welded in metro for both rear quarter panel and did the body work. Cost me $1800 plus the sil. Looks like new

I have a 2/1971 FST FJ40. It has a hard top bolted on it. The hard top sides have the single side window. I notice there is a later model with the side window with vent windows. Will these side panels fit on my FJ40? I like the idea of rear vented windows.
I did a lot of searching on the Internet. I found the original tank and pump for my 71 FJ40. I forget where I got it now, but found a guy with a junk yard. I'd also call Mike at cruiser Corps. He's has helped me out with several used OEM parts.
