    Default The Phantom Of City Sadar Road

    When I first started this thread, I had just taken delivery of a stock, recently-auctioned 1984 TLC FJ40.

    Gaari to khareed lee, lekin I had little/no idea of what I was going to end up doing to the vehicle. For a very long time, I planned to give it a "decent" sort of makeover: something involving some nice tyres, a respectable paint-job, comfortable seats, a roll cage, and that's about it. At that time, little did I know what was in store for me...

    Somewhere along the line, this project developed a life of its own. Baaton baaton mein, it metamorphosed from being a quick, run-of-the-mill restoration into something quite ambitious and challenging. Something that was in-your-face, and in-your-guts. Something, the likes of which we had seen chronicled in the pages of Off Roader magazines...but something which we'd never really attempted back home.

    This rebuild is STILL ongoing. It's far from over, just yet. But along the way, it's indeed become something which seems to have a life of its own. Ironically, this as-yet-unfinished vehicle has developed a...character.

    While it may not be the most ego-stroking fact...a lot of people know "The Phantom...jiss ka maalik woh Fouad Hafeez hai"...rather than knowing "Fouad Hafeez...jiss ke paas woh Phantom hai"

    Also, along the way, this vehicle has been instrumental in my making a huge number of friends, acquaintances, and well-wishers alike. Without a doubt, all of these people are gentlemen; sporting enthusiasts, and engine afficianados, and automotive hobbyists...with whom, a common love for the sport, has brought us to common ground. Their support, good wishes, advice, expert opinions, constructive criticism, and attention to detail, has made this hunk of steel slowly emerge into its current shape. I have no doubt that the end product will be a fusion of the ideas and aspirations of all of these friends, acquaintances, and well-wishers. To all of you; my deepest gratitude. It has been (and will be) one helluva ride, so far!

    For now, though, this thread (having picked up over 700 replies) is going to undergo some TLC of its own. A chronicle (in pictures) of all the water that's flown under the bridge, thus far, as we progress towards the desired end state (shown in the last picture of this post). Let the photos begin!

    And...I think it's about time for some of the photos to change here, too.

    Masha Allah it's looking so nice.

    Front and rear doors are same in size? Rear door appears to be a little wider in the pictures.

    Nice sir, I just have an observation. The rear tires are slightly towards the front of the designed area. Please do consider this thing. I think if possible, it can be corrected by re adjusting the front leaf spring holders (moving them rearwards) on the frame. This will automatically adjust the angle of rear shackles (to 45 degrees) which is currently almost about 80 to 85 degrees. Overall the phantom is looking awesome and beautiful.

    I absolutely agree, DeeDee. This was an experiment. I'm still not entirely happy with the side-on shape. However, you'll agree that it looks pretty hot, when viewed from the rear and half-rear. Let's see if this current state can be improved upon. Otherwise removing it, is the simplest option.

    Jazak Allah. Thanks for the kind words. As a matter of fact, the rear doors are slimmer than the front ones. I think the bottom slope of the rear doors creates an optical illusion of them being bigger. Otherwise, amongst the door sets, the front ones are wider.

    Duly noted, Noman. The front muthhiyan of the rear leaf springs must indeed be moved back, slightly...so as to properly align the wheels in the rear wheel-arch, and provide the right angle to the rear shackles. Thanks for the observation.

    Maashallah, the Phantom looks phantastic Bohat Khoob Fouad Bhai! And bohat mubarik, this has been a labour of true love, hats off to you for managing this from Kharian, speaks of your passion for cars!

    Just in case you do want to move the rear tire back a bit, you can try and see if the 60 series leafs can be replaced with longer 45 series pickup leafs which would move the tire back as few inches and also gives a bit more travel..... The rear mud flap is no good because it reduces the amount of mud the tires will flap back onto the dala

    And BTW you probably should drive them tires around on low pressure for sometime to let them know that they are out of storage and have finally arrived home What is the approximate tire pressure in the pics?
