This one took about a year and a half,
I did it just after i turned 18, I lived like a bum for that time as most of my spare time and all my money went into it, my g/f at the time left me cause of it, but women come and go and the fj is a much better ride than she ever was hahaha!

the paint is back to bare metal and I spent many afternoons after work in the panel shop doing all the grunt work. but it was worth it.

that looks like a very good example! well done!

If i ever get a dream car garage, I'd have one of these in it too....

Finding parts must be a nightmare though!

btw, have you seen the book she's a beauty by Don Loffer? the story of the first holdens. I really good read for anyone who likes these cars.

Cheers,

Parts arn't as bad as you might think I've got a lot of connections through the veteran car club here in WA, because the driveline was basically the same from FX to EH engine and gearbox bits are easy to get its trim bits and body pannels that are getting harder to find now.

Yeh have seen the Don Loffer book he's done two now the second is call "The FJ Holden" and it's all about J's
