It's a big operation, I'm sure it would be no problem. I don't know what the cost would be though, this one cost me 400 which is what he quoted but the girl at the desk said he had over 900 into it based on materials and shop time. The shop was pretty qiuet when I picked it up so I'm sure he was glad to just have something to keep the guys moving.

Matt took some progress shots of the bulkhead, can't wait to get it back. Other panels are all sanded out and will be primed and painted in a week or so.

Man that looks nice! Did Matt make the panels himself or are they YRM?

I'll let Matt answer that but AFAIK he sourced them and resourced them when the originals were nowhere close to correct. All the galvy parts and a good epoxy primer before paint should make it last a good long time now.

BTW Forrest, love the FJ-40!

Thanks Kevin, and Happy Birthday! Sadly the FJ is in storage. I haven't driven it for a couple of years.

Matt has finished the bulkhead and was nice enough to post a couple of photos on his Facebook page which I am posting here. Metal prep, epoxy primer and a few coats of desert sand paint next.

I'll give you the old lower half and you can hang it in your garage to inspire you while you clean your frame with a toothbrush.

Bulkhead is test fit and I took some time today to mark and drill holes for a few things like the series type gas pedal assembly and the heater fan and core. No use painting it and then drilling holes in it. Felt so good to be putting something together for once, of course It will come back off tomorrow and go to paint this weekend or so.

And I would spend $90 and replace the shock towers with the terraflex ones from BP. They are looking a little rusty although it could be dirt as the bottoms look pretty good). They will probably be ok for a while but it would suck to have to pull the fenders again to replace them later.

I have been considering that Ron, "while your in there."

Randy, Gillespie Coatings Lusterless Desert Sand 686A. I will be using a hardener as well so it won't be dead flat, but pretty close. After some help from a local paint supply shop and seeing the other pricey paint jobs done by some here, I realized that for the way I use the truck, a military/tractor paint was really best for me. So I researched on military vehicle forums and found a lot of experiences to go by with the Gillespie Paint.

As far as dipping it, I've considered it and decided not to. I want this back on the road and the prep and expense of getting it dipped would delay that considerably. Stripping it correctly, protecting threads, removing all the little bits like plastic dash screw holders, vents screens and vent seals that have never leaked etc. Most of the repair panels are galvy and I will be doing proper metal prep, epoxy priming , seal seamer and a tough topcoat. I will also be waxoyling the insides of the door posts and the outside up to just above the repair sections. The truck suffered from poor hygene with previous owners and that won't happen this time around. Plus the galvanizer backed a forklift over a windshield frame last time ruining it. They covered it but I am not willing to risk the bulkhead.

The repair panels are all galvy other than where it was removed to "blend". I wouldn't have recommended galvanizing that bulkhead. Good paint, waxoyl cavity wax, good "hygene" and it will almost certainly outlive us all.....or at least the crusty old f$$ks like me.
