Hey guys, long timer lurker, first time poster. Picked up my 83 FJ40 LX 3 weeks ago from a guy in Sydney and drove it the 1,000km home to Queensland. I really wanted to do a restoration myself, but after a lot of soul-searching and comparing my ambition to my actual skills, it made more sense to buy one almost complete. It has had a full re-spray in the original medium blue, had the engine rebuilt and has the original "zebra" LX seats in really good condition. It also comes with a Bestop canvas top and doors that I've yet to fit. As it's coming into winter here, I'll wait for it to warm up again before I fit it and hit the beach. So far, all I've done is fit a genuine front bar to replace the cut down bullbar that was on it when I bought it. Anyway, that's about it. I love it and so does the family. Oh, and please excuse any stupid questions!
