    Can't help with your rubber items, but for aftermarket, I have been a happy customer of the following for some time - started with a Mercedes and then upgraded to old Land Cruiser.... CocoMats.com Car Mats

    Excellent quality, great service, good prices/value and they will make almost anything if you provide a template/pattern. I had a set made for over top of my full carpets in the 73 and they worked from my sketch/pattern as it was their first 70 Series.

    Old school products, great service and support - a pleasure to deal with.

    70 SERIES SHOP/PARTS THREAD POST

    Found a photo of the 73 with the aftermarket floor mats in place. No, the Dynamat is not final finish for carpeting :)

    Hello Ward,
    This thread is an excellent idea. Can one add businesses in Canada here?

    Good Christ, Beno, that was a quick response.

    If you're in western Canada, i suggest the following shop:

    Pro-Active Automotive
    3501 29th Street NE
    Calgary, Alberta
    Canada, T1Y-5W4
    403 291 2470
    I've been dealing with that shop for nearly 12 years, and not once have they put a foot wrong. They looked after my 61, and now my 75 Troopie; they've no problems finding parts, they get the job done right the first time, etcetc, and i've no reason to go anywhere else. I've seen at that shop, over the years, foreign Troopies, one or two Dutch ones and a French one (if i remember correctly), from foreigners doing their long-range travels; as well, they often have other JDM vehicles there. Recommended unconditionally, and i wouldn't post this without personal experience and trust in them.

    This may be a dumb question as I think I'm the only 70s owner in Los Angeles (if that's wrong, somebody tell me!), but has anyone had experience with K&H Import Auto Repair? I know they deal with a lot of 60 and 80 series.

    Still looking for a solid go-to mechanic in my neck of the woods.

    A good option for long-term rehab work but 5-hour drive for a check up is just a tad too far for me :(

    I can vouch for K&H. Took my 74 to them for a couple of minor things and they did a solid job.

    K&H Import Auto Repair
    21420 Ingomar St
    Los Angeles CA 91304
    Mario, 818 594 0088
    Specialize in cruisers, mostly 40s and 60s, know their way around 70s and are the best option I've found in Southern CA.

    I owned an FJ55 that had receipts on an engine rebuild from K&H. No personal experience but it ran really well and I have heard good things about them.
