A while ago we (father & son) decided to restore a 45. All the 40's that are currently in various stages of restoration just added fuel to the fire. A vehicle was found (1977 FJ 45) and the project started








Removing the loadbin (1 &1/2 man operation)





It will not be a true restoration as the chassis will be cut and the loadbin will be replaced............

Still not sure what colour to use. Rustic Green was my first choice, but Theo's green looks good on screen. Just trying very hard to go and see first hand before a final decision is made.  >:(

Might even go a shade lighter. :-\
