    Did the search and cant find the original post. I am in need of a top for my 71 FJ40. What, aside from ambi. doors, is stopping me from using my buddies '77 top?

    Should fit. I think you will need new hardware for the ambie doors though (latches top and bottom).

    Just drill some holes where the hinges meet the body and nut/bolt it on.

    windshield wipers.

    everbody says they should fit. they don't.

    the fiberglass part has a bracket that just won't fit with the "over-the-top" style wipers. you have to cut out notches for them. it's a lot easier to do before you totally mount the top (ask me why, i know. ha ha.)

    good luck with it man. where are you located? i know of a couple parts (sides, etc.) that i could probably pick up for you if the other top doesn't work out.
