    Doing some cleaning tonight from the BC trip......excuse my cruiser ignorance if this is a stupid question.

    Are these anything? Or just parts of something?

    Thanks, Matt

    I was kinda thinking that, but not sure? They have some surface rust on them, but pretty solid.

    Thanks, Matt

    Definitely doors. Not sure if they are OEM doors, though.....seems like they are missing some hardware if they are. They look more like they could be halfdoors.

    They look like a portion of the soft doors on Ground Up's rig - see pic of the whole door on post #119 and #217 here:

    I had never seen doors like that until I ran across his restoration thread. He did an extremely detailed restoration on that FJ40 and now he has is for sale on Ebay. He's had it appraised at $63K. I can't wait to see if anyone offers him enough for him to let it go.

    Hopefully soon.....still got a few things to finish on the lv ;)

    Been working on procuring a new (used) frame. It's going to happen, just want to make sure I am able to get one. I have several solid leads and I know I will get one for sure....should know within 30 days which one and where it's coming from.

    After that.......wide open....;p

    Is there any need for these by anyone, or to much gone to be worth anything??

    Thanks, Matt

    They are worth something to someone I"m sure and more if that is the piece of the puzzle that is needed to complete the project. :)
