Actually....there's only about 20%....Bogota is at 8,600 ft.....so no humidity....which is why the FJ's are in such good shape....

Check out the sides of that top (the extra rib near the bottom) also the shape of the top piece. Looks like the whole thing is fiberglass. Gotta be aftermarket.

Awesome rebuild and fast! Looks great.

I am learning that the top is definitely after market.....it is fiberglass... I am also seeing that they make many modifications down here....such as 70's blinkers... Not sure if the rear door is a Colombian modification, or something that was done on imports to SA. I asked and the bodyshop owner said that most of the FJ's have this door.

I asked for a modern steering wheel with tilt....as I had powersteering installed....and didn't need that big steeringwheel


Folsom50, I definitely recognize those photos....Kiko bought the tan one.... Mine doesn't even compare to yours....

Yeah right! Neither are mine, both came out of Bogota, and both are really nice...nice like yours. The yellow plates along with the big running lights on top of the same push-bar show where they are from. You got a sweet rig.
