This is my Vote:

 

 

Because beside I like Yellow, the Dark Mustard Yellow without shine of the Old-School Landcruisers were very well fitted for an awesome & Serious offroading machine, like yours.

 

Kind Regards.

 

I wholeheartedly concur!

Something about that old school Toyota color, kinda screams "Warning!" without actually screaming it. 

shoot it in a two part epoxy base, that way, as it gets wrinkled (pushing the others out of the way), it won't ever chip or scratch. (and a black stripe somewhere...please give it a black stripe?)

 

Love what you are doing!

and usually I'm a purist when it comes to restorations, but this...this is a work of motherfreaking ART!

I love it and support your right (hell yeah, I said RIGHT!) to create such a creature!

 

Please...continue...

 

Admiringly,

Timothy

Everything is still up in the air. But I do love stripes, and the Landcruiser Yellow.

 

I also Do like Penelope maroon.

I am not spraying the car. I Have a good friend that is an amazing body guy, he will be doing some body work to the bed and spraying it for me when it reaches that point.

It will look good in the beginning LOL

cheers

I like the new land cruiser drab green that is on the new FJ's. I think its pretty sick. I might do my OBS in a color like it.

 

Like this color here.

I will be hanging out with my buddy this Saturday. Plenty of time to talk about paint and such. :)

I also have been doing more on the electrical panel.

I bought a cannon style bulkhead connector and tool to make it a skosch easier.

Should work out proper.

cheers

Why yes, yes it is. :)

I feel blessed to be working on this. I could never imagine that my mediocre dreams could work out. The fact that I have been able to gather all the tools needed, and the experience of teaching myself how to do it really means A LOT to me.

There are certain things I can not obviously take credit for, Like a windshield, Or signal lenses . etc. But the fact that I have taken the time to appreciate what I would like to build is priceless to me.

 

I may have been able to make the short shifter, but I did purchase one from LC Eng. BUT I built everything I could with My meager supply of tools.

When I am done I feel I will have a Solid wheeler. :}

Cheers

 

It will kick rump roast and take names.

 I cleaned a bunch of stuff up in the shop.

I meowed a seal yesterday. I will be going to get one today. I then can assemble the clutch stuff, mount the bell housing again, get the t-case up in there, put some elbow grease on her and remount the engine so I can start running wires to see where I am at.

 

That's done now.

I reckon I should start worrying about trying to mount the radiator.I t looks daunting really . Especially with the hood on, and very little room to wiggle with.

I guess we will see.

lol

Did get the hood set up on there, have more room to move the radiator around than I thought.
I am trying to keep the winch as far back as possible.
So I will try an get things lined up proper where I would actually like them this week.

Also have to see how everything else is going to fit. dash , electrical panel, gauges, trans tunnel etc.

I need to cut a hole for the starter.
cheers

Had to see how the shtuff was gonna work. Thats an LC engineering short shift kit up front there, and my own Toyota twin sticks.

Better shot of the homemade twinsticks.

It is either going here, or above our heads. There is definitely room up there.
But that would elongate the wiring causing me to have to already upgrade when I have almost all of what I need for the entire truck....

Anyways.
cheers

so which one do you favor more? the porter or the pbr? :) Now you just need a keg or two for a gas tank.

I would opt for NOT above your heads. getting out of the vehicle when its upside down could be painful with switches and metal box corners to deal with...  :)

The reason for the roof placement is obviously water.
I have a habit of drowning stuff.
I would need to keep it running for only a minute, but then I would be able to remove the box if it got in the way. It will be removeable.
Good thoughts.

And , I drank about 12 new beers last week alone. But I will ALWAYS have a soft spot for PBR.

hmm.  now a fully removable switch box would be awesome!  then you could actually build it for both ways.  just have an extension cable to roof mount it when in wet terrain...  :) 

 

nice idea on the box.  I have an old first aid kit metal box.  might be something I can re-purpose it for!

I avoid the deep water. Had my fill, pardon the pun. I stick to trails now. I try to keep it wheel side down, but like Mick said, it could be a danger in a roll over. Good tight seat belts?

it has harnesses, and full suspension seats from PRP racing. I am not worried about hitting it WHEN I flop, I will  most likely wear a helmet almost all the time anyways.
