    Default Need help with FJ40 restoration.

    Hi Brothers,

    I found this place much convenient for help specially with restorations. I just bought Auctioned FJ40 few weeks ago, and now finally dent/paint job will start from tomorrow onward.

    However, 2F is a damn beast, but it's 3 speed and I am concerned about the fuel consumption as well. After speaking to couple of Mechanics, they suggested to replace it with Surf engine, probably 2400CC or 2700CC Petrol. Suggestion?

    Me and my mechanic drove 10kms. Engine, gear, 4x4, and suspension is in perfect condition, which obviously I did not expect.

    Down the road, I'll keep posting the images.

    you are very humble to paint him as MEETHI CHORRI , he is a damn DAKU & A CHEAT, for an auctioned RKR ( aug 2013 ) he was asking 650000 deal closed at 615000 & papers (voucher) turn out to be fake. to get refund is a separate story. Be careful

    You may be right but I suggested to buy parts from him and you don't need any documents for it. He seems like a cheat that's why when ever you call him, he most of the time never receive it. But you can buy parts, accessories from him but again beware of rates.

    Thanks TheAviator & Capsat, I got the hard top with both sides, and doors in 80% condition. It requires minor repairing work that is being done atm. Should be good to install with in a week or so.

    Also bought following items...
    Toyota prado steering (Complete)
    Power steering motor
    Break booster and master cylinder
    New Alvin radiators & air cleaner
    Altered fuel tank, and installed fuel pump

    These items have been installed....

    We'll start the engine in a day or two, and then it will go back for the rest of the paint job.

    I feel as if vacuum cleaner has been tucked into my wallet!
