    I wonder how much was spent on this restoration, the amount of new OEM parts is unbelievable!

    FJ40 in Oregon

    This guy sells parts on EBAY and has some amazing parts in his possession. I think he is "atlas" or something like that.

    I have heard from cruiser guys around Oregon that he will replace every nut and bolt on his 1979 to make it "flawless". When done this restoration will be of the caliber being completed in Boise, ID on that 1973 which we have seen recently on the board. There are not many people that are thorough enough to do it this way.

    This 1979 when done has to cost $40k or more to do it this way.

    All it takes is time and money.

    putting a cruiser back together isnt as difficult as it seems, its just very frustrating and time consuming. especially for him, doesnt want to scratch all of his parts...
