You're absolutely right, Bilal. With more and more FJs being auctioned off, it seems that there're correspondingly more and more people who're willing to take the plunge with rebuilding them. The really GREAT thing, is that there's a significant number of people who are ALSO willing to experiment with their purchases, and make some radical modifications to the originals in terms of body styling and performance. I think this needs to be encouraged, as an expression of artistic intent and technical exploration. Sure...some of the pioneers of this type of "rad" rebuilding this particular model will falter along the way...but the rest will be able to learn from their mistakes / follies. In the process, a "collective wisdom" of sorts will be gathered. I'm also of the view, that this bodes well for the sport, for our technicians, and for our craftsmen, alike.
And it certainly doesn't hurt that there're some truly beautiful, bad-a$$ FJ beasts prowling our roads, too!
