    Man - that is looking really good. The attention to all the nooks and crannies with the sandblasting as well as the primer work is commendable. That's definitely in great condition considering the idea of "corrosion protection" in the late 60's! In reference to your question about lead, on my...

    FJ45 rollovers and the need for a roll cage

    My perspective is that of a LV owner, a bodyshop owner/operator, a motorcycle rider, cigar smoker, smart phone divorcee, as well as an ice hockey player : I definitely know the risks, but the thrill and vulnerability is part of the experience. And although I don't choose the safest...

    Thanks for the info! I'll definitely check them out. Looks like you're deep in the nitty gritty of the metal work, and its great to see that you're getting it done right!

    Any chance you might be willing and able to post a few pics specifically of the rotisserie you guys are using? I'm just starting to build mine and I've been squinting at the screen at all the little details I can pick up on. A couple of "full-ons" and side views would be much appreciated!

    I agree with Tancruiser; 3M Self-Leveling Seam Sealer (part#: 08307) works great. Primer any bare metal first, then scuff/sand the primer, and finally apply the seam sealer. That way it will look great and last a long time.

    I had previously cut out some rust on the front floor boards and replaced with solid sheet metal so I could drive it. In these pics there is a lot of body shop dust covering the Arma Coat bedliner I had sprayed in to Protect it and help with some sound deadening. Sins from the past :

    Thanks for looking guys - I appreciate your attention to details! Here are some more that I have now that these parts are back in my hands and I've applied some primer to the freshly exposed sheet metal: So, there have definitely been some shenanigans in the past but you can still see...

    Stripping everything down and sending off to be sand blasted, as well as having the frame powder coated. This old girl has seen better days, but I'm happy with the lack of rust.

    Pamphlet Power

    Bam! the flip side looks like this : My favorite part is the up close "lifestyle" photos of the demographics they were trying to appeal to, you know, - Families that buy groceries, - People who hunt deer, - People who hunt elk, and, - 4 Wheel'n Bikini clad babes in war zones...

    Pamphlet Power

    When I bought my LV, the seller included several old sales pamphlets and ads from his collection - I like this one the best and I haven't seen it anywhere else so check it out : Front Page Opens to : Cruis'n in Japan Opens again to : But wait, there's more : . . .

    I'm coming to the understanding that you're right about that. I've just been reading the past postings about the differences by year and how the firewall tag is the year of registration not the manufacturing date. So its probably been titled incorrectly all these years. Interesting.

    Gauging interest in 45LV window weatherstrip kit.

    I got my kit in successfully and I'm super stoked. It is kind of generic as far as gaskets and seals go, but the beauty of it is that it is all cut to size, and it eliminates the guesswork and time if a person were to decide to try to piece this together on their own. Thanks c2dfj45! - Dave

    Ha! Thanks Joe - Two empty Chianti bottles would indicate that I may have been "interneting under the influence" that night - I'm moving over to the Owners club where I meant to be !
