The one I looked at (Rock Gear, IIRC) was a regular old vinyl/demin bikini top and then used nylon for the back and sides and doors! In looking at the SOR one, it doesn't cover your doors or your cargo. Plus, this one rolled up into pouches in the bikini so they were out of the way.
IMO, a great idea, but only made for Jeeps now....course, that may have changed again, I shopped for them a few years back.
Just on tip on bikini tops. I bought one of Specters tops which was double sided: black vinyl and camo. I ended up tearing the top first time on the trails, the edging and camo was thin. I just took it to a local canvas shop and had them repair it with the thicked edging and camo canvas they had. May want to find someone locally to make one to you design, would be more expensive but would stand up better.
>Driver's turn signal housing and lens
you should be able to find one used
>Shifter boot for 3speed tcase
Used rubber? are you kidding? If you don't want an OEM new one, drop on by Napa-Pep Boys and pick up a generic one.
>Driver's and passenger's outer mirrors
not gonna find these cheap.
>Good bucket seats
wrecking yard locally. It will kill your wallet to ship them anywhere.
>Good rear seats - jump or bench seats
again, not cheap. Good ones go for $150 a pair for shorts, long style (no roll bar) a little less. If you want to recover bare springs then 'cheap' will play into the game.
Yeah, I've done more research since I posted this. I have my eye on some front buckets and rear bench from a Heep. It's a guy in a local 4wheeling club. Probably end up buying the boot and blinker housing from CCOT or SOR. Thanks!
I am wanting to put a 3b diesel in my fj62. Let me know if anyone out there has one. I am looking for relatively good engine, maybe needing a little work. Milage will depend on how good engine is. If you have a perfectly running 180k mile engine, i would still like to buy it. YOu get the point.
