I have done a poor job of updating the build thread so I'll try to get caught up. With a house move in Jan. and a large remodel project underway for the past couple of months it has limited our FJ40 project time. However, while I was unable to work on the FJ40 I was able to put together a pretty nice tool roll. It all got started when I saw @Tanker120thread here. Tanker did a fantastic job on the tool rolls and I was able to order most of the tools online from Japan and other online sources.
In the past couple of weeks we have made some progress. I have a goal to be ready for paint in 2 weeks. Probably very ambitious, but we might as well set a goal...
Entire body has been sanded and primed working on a final sand now.
I used an etching primer for the tub as we are going to spray tintable Raptor Liner on the tub. You can also see I added some sound deadening strips to the inside of the doors. I decided to try Peel & Seal from Lowe's. It's much more cost effective than using Dyna Mats. Which I have used in the past, honestly I do not believe there is enough difference from a decibal level to pay the extra $$.
Big milestone today, we finished the makeshift paint booth and was able to spray the FJ40. Could be more happy with the results, thrilled on how it's turning out. The color is exactly what I wanted, low luster, dark grey paint called Wool Grey.
Primed and ready for paint (sorry was shaking with excitement and blurred the image)
