No, just a regular body shop... just another one of my ridiculous side projects.HI- another NOLA FJ62 owner here..I am in the Uptown area. Yes, I love that color and wheels you are going with. Are you doing an engine conversion or keeping it stock? Last- the pics look like you have a shop with other vehicles in for restorations, do you do restorations and work on FJ's for others? Asking for a friend
Look forward to meeting you and seeing this beauty around town!
@Seth S - no need, the vehicle has never left New Orleans, the only rust we found was some slight surface rust on the body panels from the previous owner paint job. The interior is perfect, so we just masked the hell out of it. We were able to basically paint all panels off the truck in one booth, body in another...Looks great. Curious...why not just pull body right off the frame?
Resto mods...how far you want to go? Trail tailor front coil spring conversion and kit to keep stock 62 axle would be a good mod. BMW 3 series front seats or Saab 9-5 Ventilated front seats....or go full hog and get some scheel Mann seats.
convert to h55 5 speed
No it has the original leaf springs, recently added a set of skyjacker h7000s shocks... So should I just go with new OEM sway bars, or are there particular sway bars that you recommend? Also, probably going to change the steering stabilizer.Hi, Clips pretty sure no longer. On the swaying on corners get Toyota sway bars. Is this a spring over truck ? Mike
