G'day Dave, I loved the back story. Keep the pics coming mate. It looks like you have the basis for what could be a really lovely old truck. Cheers, Ben
So Gifu Body stamped the VIN plate frame number incorrectly as an FJ40 instead of FJ45, and this not agreeing with the actual stamped frame number has never been challenged by any registering authorities over the years? Interesting.
small steps is the key. It is very easy to get overwhelmed by the big picture.
I am trying to remember now. Why are you taking this apart instead of just making it drivable?
