Default Finally got one! 82' FJ40

So i finally landed one! Got it last night

The rear quarters are kinda rusty, the doors and windshield frame don't match, and it came with no hard top, but other than that it's pretty cool!

it's an 82 with 136000 miles. Seems to be running pretty well, and the tranny shifts nice. I think with a little body work it should turn out pretty nice

I ordered a steering pivot rebuild kit, and some new seat covers today. First of many parts i'm sure. Next on the list is to go through the vacuum lines and figure out why it's got a high idle and studders every once in a while. That'll be for tomorrow. As is it passed emissions though! Got new tags and everything set up today

I'll slowly be going through the thing this winter and will probably be using it as my main mode of transoprtation for a while. It'll give me a chance to get the 60 fixed up and do some things i've been needing to get done for a while that involve taking it off the road for a little while.

Pics aren't that great, I parked it near the garage and forgot I needed to snap a few so it was a squeeze.

It was in some sort of a wreck a while back. I think that's the same reason the windshield frame is different.

edit: nevermind.. the bezel is round. how the hell did I miss that? now what's different about the bib?

headlights are a touch wider apart and the bezel is square instead of rounded on the corners.

You got it. That's if I can figure out the vacuum lines. Holy heck, I just spent an hour out there and even with the manual made it worse.

didn't even catch the windshield, but yeah, it's a 66-74 setup. don't expect to drop your windshield unless you either change the hood holddowns to earlier model or the windshield to later model. oh, and before someone else catches it, your bezel's upside down

other than that, it looks pretty nice. get the doors painted to match and enjoy it.

Can you see something that looks different here in the front bib section? Oh and I am soooooooo disappointed that the bib police let you slide so far....
