    Default 1984 FJ-40 Restoration (Karachi)

    Hello people,
    I just started restoration on a 1984 FJ-40 and would like some help on getting some much needed parts. If possible please help me out and let me know if you have any knowledge that would help me with the project. The parts i need (right now) are listed below.

    1) Hard Top (with doors)
    2) Speedometer
    3) Battery (which one should i use)?
    4) I need rims too, which ones will fit?

    Anyone in Karachi willing to share some knowledge about where to find parts?

    thanks brother I appreciate it. Currently I am out of Karachi but I will call you as soon as I get back. My FJ is in almost finishing phase and it should be road worthy soon. Are you putting disk brakes front and rear? I would defiantly like to check out how you put on the disk brakes. For now I am leaving mine drum and see what happens.

    I am not sure about tires yet, I might import wheels and tires from USA if I cant find any decent products here in Karachi. Do you know if anyone in Karachi has All terrain good years 10.5 inches wide? I don't want to go 12.5 they are too wide.

    Brother you have reached the RIM phase without giving us updates(pictorial) on ur project.....

    I think the rims you are trying to find are these original 60 Series Rims..you will be able to find them in Karachi. For that matter I think 16 inch rim should be able to clear all the issues

    Zafcom Tyres near Toba Masjid Ph-1 DHA can help u in importing fresh stocks of good year and BF goodrich..they also keep these tyres in stock.... but i still recommend Dunlop or Bridgestone... keep it simple and low expense =)
