Front seats I had in storage for a rainy day…perfect fit.

It looks like the shifter cover for the HDJ79 will line up with the VDJ 79 transmission tunnel. Cut outs in the vinyl floor mat line up as well… But the holes in the floor pan are a little bit corroded and I could not chase the threads easily with a retapping die. I will have to pull everything out and get a good look in there.

I've been waiting for a double cab 79 build to surface on here! Was thinking it would either be you or @c2dfj45 who got to it first. Will be following with interest.

I've been sworn to secrecy on our builds :(

This is a happy nine year old.

“It has a BACK SEAT?!?”

She loves it, too.

Cab is sitting on the rear frame mount! I am palpably excited.

Bill made it a rolling chassis! It sits under its own weight.

The other thread was awesome.

This one kills it and its 2 pages. I have a feeling this will happen more and more after you’re finished
