    1988 Cruiser Color Codes

    In the process of restoring my white 88 cruiser. Not sure exactly which "white" color code is correct? Everything that I've seen thus far, points me towards color code 045, but the color swatch looks beige/tan, rather than white. Any assistance provided, is highly appreciated! Thanks in advance!

    Glass-out paint job question

    I'm working on ordering everything I need for my upcoming paint job- those of you who have done it, did you replace all window and door seals, rubber gaskets, weatherstripping, body trim, window felts, emblems etc? Can any of it be reused? I know cuiserparts sells a weatherstripping kit, but I...

    Dreaming - What Paint Color

    I know there have been threads on paint colors, but with all the new options out there, if you were to change colors completely, what color would you paint your 60? I'm really digging this new Toyota Calvary Blue. Especially if everything were blacked out.

    Pros/Cons of black/grey/silver paint on GX470s

    I'm leaning towards grey (ash blue mica) or silver (silver pine/titanium metallic) BUT a few black (black onyx) GX470s have caught my eye... Anyone have any issues with the black paint... I had a civic back in the day and it had crazy paint swirls that drove me nuts... I'm guessing they'd be...

    Thoughts regarding black as an exterior color

    I've been searching for a 2013+ for awhile and originally discounted black as an exterior color due to the maintenance factor (harder to keep clean) and that blemishes tend to be more pronounced against a glossy, dark surface. My wife has a black Audi and I find that it doesn't take that much...

    Hey Mudders, I am looking for someone to repaint my 85 FJ60 up in the Mount Vernon/Burlingon area. Not looking for Picasso, this isn't a show vehicle, but looking for someone that is willing to strip down and do a repaint. Might be some minor metal work, don't know for sure. Any suggestions?

    Hi folks. Had a question about original paint colors on the HJs; saw a black and silver one with decals that I was told was original, and someone else told me they never made those in black. (1989). Can’t find the info anywhere myself. Thanks in advance!

    What’s your favorite rattle can?

    What’s your favorite spray paint for the drivetrain and chassis? I am not looking for showroom pretty, just a solid color and a rust barrier. I used Rustoleum self etching primer and enamel on my rear hubs. I am hoping it will hold up. What have worked long term for you?
