    I bought my rust-free '86 FJ60 outside of Las Vegas, NV 15 years ago. Right now I'm finishing my build. The vehicle hasn't been on the road since '95 - about time, right?

    What's hiding in that drink holder? Something local?

    If you did the upgrade harness with relays, get some 80/100W and 100W bulbs. Even more wow.

    Got in some more work on my rear cargo area build out. Fridge slider most of the way done. I made it a double slide with a double pop-up table. Still need to add table surfaces (the cardboard is a temporary visual aid :)) and finish up mounting it to the floor. About 2” will be trimmed off the right side of the bottom panel, where it will match up with drawers to go beside it.

    Great job Kleatus. I will be starting some work back there soon. How did you attach it to the floor? I am assuming the existing tie-down hooks, but did you use the hook itself or figure out a way to bolt into the existing holes?

    Right now it’s just sitting there. I was thinking I would drill holes in the plywood where the cargo hooks go, remove the hooks, and drill a 3x3” or so square of 1/8” plate with the same hole pattern and use that for a washer on top of the plywood and bolt it down that way. I will need to sink the whole thing into the plywood for the drawer side mounts (or route slots for the bolt heads in the drawer bottoms), as I don’t plan to use any sliders in the drawers, just wood on wood. This will minimize cost, maximize space and make it very easy to remove the drawers (thinking removeable kitchen drawer with legs) or swap for a different drawer for different applications. Also the whole drawer side (or fridge side) can be removed separately as the need arises.

    For some, or maybe all, of those with FJ60s that didn't come with the stock cargo tie-downs in the back, they're already set up with holes in the floor pan. The holes in my '86 FJ60 floor were taped over with aluminum tape at the factory.

    Tinted the rear windows, and got rid of the chrome locking strip on favor of the black WLS466 rubber lock strip. Tried to finish the roll down windows but did not succeed. I need more practice and more film. Replaced the rear top hatch with a not as rusted one and then ran out of paint, thus the not quite right color and lack of rear wiper. Fun project. I suck at window tinting... but learned how to get the rear windows in and out.

    That's exactly what I am thinking for the tie downs. Then I'll route grooves in the top for seat track style tie downs. I agree on drawer slides. I am thinking I will sand them nice and smooth and add some teflon strips to make them slide a little better. I'm on the fence about a removable kitchen drawer. I want my finished height pretty low (wheel well height) and that doesn't leave much room. But as you pointed out, once you get the frame built, the drawers themselves are modular and you can play with it as needed.

    I am willing to pay for some things, but I can get all of the tools I need and enough materials to mess it up a few times for what a set of pre-made drawers cost, and when I finally get it like I want it, I will still have the tools. And as you point out. I can make modular drawers or change my mind about the set-up.

    Installed an Inclometer! Should the bulb have a green cap over it so the back light matches the gauges?
