Replacement body panels.... I need some for the '64 FJ40. Anybody have any laying around? Here's a list of what I need:

-Left and rear side/corner panels
-Rear sill (complete)
-Left and right outer rocker panels

I would submit that there is no such thing as a suitable (as in low rust to rust free) 40 series sill, rocker panel or corner panel within a galaxy of Denver that anyone would be willing to part with, with the possible exception of a parts rig. But then if it's a parts rig, those body parts are already rusted through. Every once in a blue moon a full tub comes around, but I haven't seen one in decades.

I used replacement panels from CCOT on my 76 restoration. I have heard good things about Heritage replacement panels (http://www.ironpigoffroad.com//index.php?main_page=index&cPath=3&zenid=c3f55118e564fa2154e9083e5d77dfdc) but haven't used them. I have seen your threads and you appear to have the skills to build them from scratch, as I did on the rear sill of my '71 (http://rzeppa.org/tech/sill.htm). You know the saying - time, money, skill, pick two.

Agreed. I'm looking into Heritage, Real Steal, & CCOT. Just didn't know if anyone had some purchased & sitting on a shelf for a future or never completed project.

I do happen to have a CCOT passenger side floor pan that I didn't use, and the box section that goes under the rear of the bucket seats, if anyone's interested.
