  • Hi there

    My name is Michael I’m 52 years old and I have 2 FJ40’s I’m trying to reproduce.
    originally I used to work on mechanical stuff but the last few years I developed an interest in metalwork.
    My current project is an ‘81 Landcruiser FJ42 that had rolled down a mountain before it was stored for a few years.
    Most of the body was either damaged or severely rusted. I’m working my way through all the issues learning as I go.
    Currently I am taking everything apart, including the welded parts, remaking what is damaged and or rusted.

    My interest in this community is to learn from all of you and hopefully give something back in return.

    kind regards,
