Hello! I picked up a 1979 FJ40 with a Vintage SOR Brush Guard as confirmed by them. I like the look without the brush guard and have someone interested in buying. What's a fair price? I have seen the whole gammit on ebay and elsewhere. Pictures attached for reference.

Marv Spector of Specter Off-Road ( http://www.sor.com ) infamy was a dear friend before cancer took his life too early a few years ago. He loved his projects and always dove in with both feet. Through his many adventures he ended up with a 1980 G61 Patrol that he decided to take on as a project...
Thought I'd share my experience replacing my 30+ year old upholstery and drivers side seat foam.
Background:I have a 89 with about 212k miles, second owner in NorCal so pretty rust free. I have zero experience doing upholstery work. Purchased the seat covers from Cruiser Corps and got a...
I'm recovering the bottom portion of my 1977 FJ40 front seats using SOR foam and seat covers. I have 2 question(note zip ties are temporarily in place of hog rings):
1. It seems like I need to trim the foam to be able to attach the seat track to the front seat bottom cushion/frame(2 bolts each...
Looking to buy some seat covers for my 2004 LX 470. I'm guessing I can use most Series 100 covers from 2003-2007 also.
I've looked at SOR, EscapeGear, SmittyBuilt, Wet Okole, and a few others. I'm just curious if anyone is thinking of selling theirs before I purchase new.
Thanks for your time!
Hey guys, I'm unfortunately getting on here to get rid of my very needy project baby. This however will be my introduction post to the forum. I'm from Mississippi, picked this rig up from a trail rental place in Oregon when I was 15 as little more than a shell with an out of shape drivetrain...
I working on recovering my 1977 FJ40 jump sheets using the Spector Offroad deluxe seat covers. I am finding that a little bit of the foam on the back corner of the seat bottoms is exposed. I am also finding the bottom covers (where they screw into the back of the seat) do not extend as far as...

Wondering if anyone has direct experience with these sliding windows for 60 series. I've personally seen a 60 that has the first generation they offered. IMHO they seemed clunky and poorly designed (they were undersized and used rivets).
These appear to be a 'new and improved' option: Page...
I have done substantial searching on this board and on the Google, but most of the posts regarding 60 series carpet are a few years old.
Is the SOR kit still considered the best kit on the market? I realize OEM is a better fit and custom carpet may fit better if I can find someone to do a good...
This is my first time posting on this forum, but after extracting so much helpful information from it, I am looking forward to getting involved. I am considering purchasing some lap belts from Specter Off Road (Link Here) because the current seat belts don't catch as quickly as...
