    Powder Coating in Maine/NH

    Anyone know of a place that can powder coat an FJ40 frame in Maine or NH? Will need full prep and coat (and a big oven) and I'll do the transport. Looking to spend less than $1,200 - expensive but, well, it's New England. Biz names or links help.

    Lucy the LC: 1969 FJ40 Rebuild: Downey Shackles? Check!

    I found this bucket of bolts about a year ago. I'd always wanted a fixer upper project car and boy did I get one! This 1969 build, '70 year model, had been sitting in Arizona for a while judging by the condition of it. It looked mostly original and was relatively rust free. The engine had a...

    I bought this basket case from @mechag a few years ago and have made some progress, so it's time I start a thread.

    Frame off and naybe over my head!

    It started out as a simple repaint and has grown from there. I was comfortable with everything that has been done until I decided to have the body blasted. I am worried now about rust popping up in the crevices that are hard to get to. Are there any effective treatments which will prevent...

    UValue's '69 FJ40 rebuild and restore

    I've followed along and learned a decent amount on this forum for a few years now. I figured it's probably time I start my own thread in case it could help someone else out. I'm far from a mechanic, though I know and learn enough to be perhaps be called proficient. The background: I...

    Curing cancer, 76 FJ40

    Hello all. I've been lurking on the site for a couple years since buying my 76 from a friend who decided he didn't want to spend the time and money on it. The 40 is a typical bone stock unit with smog garbage removed. It is mechanically very sound with the tightest steering I have ever felt...
