I thought I'd start an official thread for what is now the reassembly of my FJ60. I picked this 60 up at the end of 2014 and have been procrastinating/working on it ever since. Initially I bought it has a beater/dog hauler but saw the potential and decided to "do a few things" to help preserve it. Flash forward four years and a few months and I'm finally reassembling it after a 5.3 swap, full strip and color change, full interior, dynamat, new rubber and gaskets, and countless other smaller changes.

How it started:

Passenger side fender harness tidied up with headlight and marker installed. As a side note, if anyone has a need to replace the boot from the upper hatch to the body, I found these boots on ebay that work well. They aren't the same shape as the toyota opening but conform to make a tight fit.

You just name the time and place! I also need to install a front axle kit because I screwed something up when I did it 3 years ago. Hoping to do it properly now that I have the knuckle centering SST.
