Maybe eventually I will come up with a cool name for it.

Starting off with a 1984 Landcruiser FJ60.

Needs some work as you will see from the pics, but overall it's a SOLID truck.

With working two jobs and currently taking a college course, I have been really busy. FInally got around to taking some pics of what I'm working with. So, with that said, here she is in all her glory.





















It has an aftermarket sunroof that was installed over the rear seat. I'm not really into sunroofs (especially aftermarket), but it is what it is.....







Interior is kinda rough, but it is a 27 year old truck.

Yours looks pretty good compared to mine Gunny. I am in the midst of a de smog right now. Tons of crap uner that hood that they do not require here in SC. If you are looking to a replacement carb look for a guy named Trollhole on MUD. He sells replacements.

Sent him a PM over there yesterday. Also, looking at a used one for $100, waiting for a reply. I will be doing the de-smog too, anything over 25 years old doesn't need an emissions test here in TX.

There is a ton of information on MUD in the 60 section on desmogs. All I am leaving are the dist. vacuum and PVC. De veining the smog ump until I build a different bracket to hold the pulley that will replace the smog pump. The smog pump is the tensioner for that particular fan belt.

I had an 85 Mustang GT that I had to de-vein the pump on. It had a serpentine belt and removing the pump was not an option.

I have spent a couple of late evenings readin the 60 series section of Mud.

Trollhole said I needed the spacer and AC idle up solenoid from the old carb. I have to look at the parts to see if they are there.

Had some free time at work today, so I pulled that nasty carpet out. The floor pans are rock solid! Will post some pics when I get home. Now trying to figure out:

1. How to get all the "gunk" off the floor.
2. What to lay down on the floor.

Replacement carpet is hard to find and expensive. Was thinking just coating it with bed liner and then good aftermarket mats.

Pretty cool project you have going there.
I assume since it's sans carb you now how well it runs?

This is an awesome find! Since the floor pans are "dry", I'd use bed liner and not worry about carpet. BTW, the sunroof will come in handy when you'd need to sleep inside the FJ60 and wanted some ventilation. :rocker:

Hammer and chisel (air hammer much less work) or a big wire wheel in a drill (makes a mess and takes off all paint too). That stuff was glued in there really well at the factory.
It's more of a sticky glue residue Lee. I will post up the pics now that I'm home.

Gunny,

I was thinking of your project today when I saw some DIY panels that someone is doing over on MUD

Imagine taking this....



and making it look like this...





Pretty clean looking!

Look what I found under the center console........must have been drinking a soda while driving. :lol:



Seats out, pulling this crappy carpet out. Looks like house carpet....



Found some of the original carpet underneath the crap up front.



All the carpet is out

Up Front



Back Seat Area



Cargo Area





The only significant rust I could find was in the cargo area and it's just surface rust.

Near the Tailgate



Near the Wheelwells

I saw that thread Doc, looking for a s.o.s. here in the DFW area. :bigthumb:

What the heck is that bag that hangs behind the panel?
Rear washer fluid bag. Looks like a colostomy bag.......
