    100 series two-tone

    I recently purchased a '99 with 108K on it. Body is quite clean other than normal scratches. The majority of these are on the cladding. Since it is already two-tone champagne pearl over (I believe) UCA46 I was thinking of having all cladding/bumper resprayed. I think a little darker gray would...

    FJ40 Front and Rear Heater Paint

    I've searched and came up with very little. Is there a preferred choice of rattle can paint being used when rebuilding the front and rear heaters? Looking for something close to the factory colors for the black metal, pewter, and gray plastic parts of the heaters. Thanks!

    Painting and rust protection writeup

    I have nearly finished my 8 year 40 frame-off resto. When starting I had only rattle-can painted, but after reading on the net, and get my youtube exam, I started shooting. Results are OK. Since I have a blog on overlanding and technical stuff I made a writeup there. It is pretty long.. How to...

    Repainting 80 Series?!

    Looking for as many opinions as I can get. Apologies if this thread is in the wrong place, but hopefully I can still get some solid replies 🤙 I have a 1991 80 series Landcruiser (Sahara model) that desperately needs some paint work as nearly every panel has clear coat peeling and paint fading...

    GX470 Metallic Interior Trim Matching

    Apologies on any mistakes here - this is my first post. Wanted to share some info with folks on what I've learned while trying to paint match my GX470's metallic interior trim in the center dashboard and console area. My vehicle has the beige interior, so not sure if this applies to the black...

    Rattle can restoration

    Getting body panels or parts repainted can be expensive and time-consuming (mostly your vehicle sitting at a body shop in the queue). Some of our vehicles warrant only the best, but I got mine to have fun and paying someone else to paint the truck really didn’t make sense. I had some sun damage...

    Advice on restoring FJ62 to Original Stock Paint or Different Color All Together

    I'm about to send my 1990 FJ62 to get painted for the first time since it left the factory in 1989. It spent the majority of its life in California under one owner so is beautifully maintained and completely rust free. The only real part of the car that took a beating was the paint from all the...

    Color of 1973 FJ40 Fuel Tank

    I had to buy a new fuel tank. I bought a new OEM tank. It came a flat black color and really looks like it needs to be painted. What is the correct color for a 1973 fuel tank? Thanks!

    Roof Paint Peeling

    Ok team - See pics. PO covered this up with his kids Crayola finger paint (or something) and now thats failing and showing rust. I've received a quote from the locally best priced collision repair shop, and they are wanting $1200 for the job. Gulp. I'm guessing I can get that down by...

    looking for advice on beginners spray paint equipment

    Next possible projects on the 62 will include painting newly acquired bare metal sliders sliders and sound deadening/new carpet on the inside. @NCFJ has mentioned lizard skin products in some of his builds and I would like to try it.

    Paint/Body shop recommendations

    Looks like I am going to stay with the factory color on my LC. Dark Emerald Pearl 6M1 I believe is the correct color code. My friend used Campus Autobody when he had his RX7 repainted. I am looking for some recommendations on body/paint shops. His car came out amazing and I would like mine to...

    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!

    ‘88 FJ62 Needs a paint job

    Its time for me to pull the trigger on a paint job for my Baby and I’m looking for a decent place around Austin. I’ve seen some posts about Jack from LCS, I don’t know if he’s still around or not. Would love to hear if anyone has any recommendations. 1988 FJ62

    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...
