It's friggin immaculate!!!!

But I've been really seachin and found that the paint in your engine bay is a different colour - so you loose points there.

Soooooo ......Not quite up to "Concours D'Elegance" standards yet.

More work to be done! :D

Ok - I didn't want to post pics of the inside yet because I have some painting to do before summer but here it goes. All seats are redone, rhino lining in the tub, mats, etc, etc, etc.:hillbilly:

Solid, great shape. Don't tell me all you had to do to the body was paint it. You need at least 1 or 2 spots to deal with . Lets here about some busted bolts , the good stuff.

I'm working on my build up, I really did'nt see the 100+ busted , rusted , stripped , ripped and just plain aggravating bolt issues coming. Hope you didn't miss out on all the fun thats all.

I think it's time for some honesty. I just bought the FJ40 2 weeks ago. I have been really praying (honest) for an FJ40. My prayer went something like this, "Lord, let me find a 1978 FJ40 that is in nice condition and something that I can afford that I don't have to pay much for." I guess about two months later, I came across a doctor who no longer wanted it and so I picked it up for $6,250. I am going to paint the inside the same color and I'm trying to fix my stereo but I don't think I am going to fix it. Any CD Players that will fit? Anyways, there you go - the truth hurts because everyone thinks I have skills:frown: but the truth has set me free so now I'm going to enjoy this sweet rig.:steer:

I just think it's in great shape (from what I can see). Looks like your prayers were answered. Sorry , I just like bringing up the broken bolt thing since ever one broke on my cruiser.
