    Customer was from Alabama at the time. He had it picked up and delivered to his town. Never told his wife what he was doing that day. Walked 3 miles from home to go meet the driver. Drove it home, parked it in the driveway and never hinted to his wife that it was home. She did know about the project, but still a funny story. He later moved to Colorado. They never got any finished shots of it - too busy wrenching to take pics I guess.

    Last week, you would have thought they were a UN motor pool! 7 white cruisers in this pic.

    And this mean machine belongs to a friend of the garage. I think he may be sticking around for a while.

    Re-purposed tire carrier from an FJC bolted to his GX gatedoor. It's mounted high enough to fit a 35" tire which will be soon. Custom trailer hitch and rear tire guard. The plan is to do tube fenders too. The license plate holder came off an 80 and the mini lightbar mounted to the rear spoiler is tied into the now blocked reverse lights. It just has a tint film on it to make it less conspicuous and tone down the overwhelming brightness.

    Can I get a little more info on this setup. I think Erin's GX needs to find an FJ tire carrier in its' future...
