I completely understand that.
Yeah, a friend in N. Cal (non LC folk) found a trailer that turns out to be a FJ45 box with tail gate. Someone cut the frame and welded a hitch on. I most likely will be buying it. He said it is gut rotted completely at the floor and you can see day light big time. Sides are good along with the forward section, just needs a floor.
Thanks Grumby but we will see. Just have the details waiting for a picture or two. The man bought it six years ago for wood hauling and it has sat under a tarp most of the time. He said he's getting to old (about 70) to cut wood so he is down sizing.
I am tempted to get involved in having the floors reproduced, just have so much on my plate now. I see them for the old and new Chevy, Ford, Dodge, someone is making reproductions.
There is a real need for this and many other LC parts. Autoparts Zarate in Columbia South America are making everything (and I mean everything) new but you can't get any cooperation from them to buy their parts. They have a point of contact in Atlanta but she is also unreliable.
Good luck! Pacol on line is Alexandra. She lives in Atlanta is running the "business" out of her home and does not follow up on anything. She is working for "Auto Parts Zarate". They do seem to make everything FJ, but I only know of a few people that have succeeded in purchasing any item from them. By the way I hope you speak spanish.
Well crap. So this was the business you referred to earlier in the thread. Was really hoping to get a $190 Land Cruiser engraved bezel too. Too bad they're not interested in improving their "business". Seems they could do very well if they made some effort.
Just an FYI: I called Alexandra at Pacolonline today at 11:00am and placed an order. At 4pm, I received a UPS tracking number (just checked and it's already in route). She seemed motivated for my business and friendly to talk to. No spanish required.
They are a little expensive but finding a place that actually makes NEW body parts for our rigs is getting pretty slim. Just trying to give the OP a viable option to choose from. Good luck.
