quick sneak peak. More to come later, when I have pics re-sized & all that.

The first shipment should hit my door in about 8-10 days if all goes well (no tops yet, just hardware items).
Best,
Abe

I've been meaning to check in and see how the project is progressing. Those look pretty good. Are there slots to hold the factory weather strip around the perimeter?

To be honest I'm not quite sure how it all goes together, even though I have a set on my 74. I've got three sets of doors that hit port, but that is the only one that is mostly assembled. Since they will ultimately need to be painted or powder coated, they will get unassembled again before final assembly. So I had that one mocked up to give me a frame of reference. I'm not sure how they all go together as a final assembly.

I guess we'll know more soon enough.

Wow, that's really neat. It's amazing that it's easier to get retro parts now than it was when I bought my first FJ40 in 1996.

What will the front doors be retailing for? Any idea if the factory W/S will fit?

Excellent.

Need a volunteer for another test fitting session? I'm curious if the bows will remedy the figment problem on my 40.

Martin, I think it's just a fitment of your imagination that you have a problem.
