Project "killer Piggy" (1 Viewer)

Hi guys ... 1st off GREAT to be back on the 'build page' !!
After all the personal BS stuff and finally finding a project that makes me excited about building again ... I FOUND ONE !!

After 2 years of searching I finally stumbled across a 1973 FJ55 . The guy was literally days away from placing the truck on BAT when I stumbled across his video, chased him down to find he was in BC and did the deal. 2 weeks later she's home sweet home ...

So this 55 has been completely restored, BUT not with original interior nor the drivetrain which makes it a fantastic candidate for my next build.

To most of you this 55 is perfect ... to me this thing has the workings to be one of the finest Resto-modded FJ55 / PIGGY ever built

So here is my plan;

Look and feel - slightly on the Resto side, keeping with the original overall look and feel of the truck. Just a few changes on the outside ...
Making this truck the ultimate sleeper ...

This build will be super clean and very tastefully done

Nice project. LSA will be a good motor. May be tough to keep cool. Have you considered running a atlas rather than a split case?
