Unbelievable! You need to get it appraised and insured as a classic for the appraised amount. That thing is a work of art! Very impressive Marco!

But you did manage to finish before the deadline. Now you can turn your attention to your new project.

Default 82 FJ40 Refresh

I couldn't stand the NAPA battery cables on there with the splice for the main power wire so I made some new ones with parts from Del City. I also noticed the hubs are supposed to be red dials not silver so I ordered new ones from Cruiser Outfitters and will keep these as spares for both rigs.

Knobs and OEM emblems!

Ragingmatt on mud did the knobs, totally rebuilt the choke cable with new liner and inner cable and rebuilt guide part, replaced the liners also on the warm and fresh pulls and polished and relubed those cables and guide parts as well. They look damned nice. He did super stellar work on it all and I'm proud to have them be the finishing pieces on the dash.
