    My 78 FJ40 was rolled before I bought it. I had to replace top, windshield frame and front doors. The doors came from Oklahoma and are real rusty. The bent up original doors have no rust but the window frames are bent real bad. The window frames on the rusty doors are in good shape. Could they be welded on to the original doors?

    The window frames need to be bolted on so they can be removed in order to be able to replace the glass. If they are welded in place you won't be able to do that.

    Is the track that the window slides in bolted on? The exterior frame that you paint is part of the door, that was the part I was referring to that is bent.
