    Are the tops of the pillars where these usually rust?

    ie is it worth keeping an eye out for another body that you can gank a turret from?

      Yeah the ice delivery boys on Moreton who happen to be my mates, used to chop less rust out of their vehicles every 2 years.
      Now they just buy 10x new vehicles but the $6 bags of ice (frozen type) it all adds up.

        Isn't this what Takai is looking for to repower his FJ60?

            The 55 and 60 series are bad for rusting out the roof and pillars, and around the fixed glass on the 60s. It's actually fairly hard to find one that hasn't got some rust in those areas, granted not all of them are as bad as this one though. Problem is even if you find a good turret for this one, what about the rest of the rust in the floors, firewall etc?

              bog it, paint it badly, find something else to fuss about.

                Too bad it's a Holden V8 conversion, if it was diesel some idiot would pay $15k for it. Seriously, have seen stupid arguments on Toymods about the relative merits of spending $10-15k on some 12H-T 60 series with 600,000km on it. No matter how reliable you think they are, it would be a rare one that isn't completely fucked.

                My vote would be lots of bog, dodgy rego and hilarity but it's a bit useless given you already have too many 4WDs. Otherwise Gammaboy's suggestion of a VN wagon rebody is the go!

                      I think a cheap patch up will be the plan.

                      That would be awesome. I actually had a quick google but couldn't find any complete bodys for sale, just panels.

                      Seems everywhere around the roof is common. I have an acquaintance who runs a landcruiser wrecking business so might pop around there sometime and have a talk with him about it. He seems to bring 60s through fairly often.

                      Floor seems ok from just looking underneath. There is rust around where the wiper motor? panel is on the fire wall, rest of it seems ok. The guards have minor rust, one door has big holes on the inside of it and there is a nasty looking patch along the passenger side sill panel which is hidden with the door closed.

                      I think this is going to be the plan. It actually seems to have had legit rego in the past, the v8 engine number is recorded on the paper work I was given with the car.

                      Leaning towards filling everything with fiberglass reo bog and possibly painting the whole thing in raptor liner (truck bed liner) tinted to match the original paint. Nopics isn't really keen on the raptor liner idea though "it looks gay" and the cost being $600ish to do it. I'm all for it at this stage. I think it will look better than having touch up paint sprayed everywhere. Its definitely not getting a proper paint job.

                          Thereís a diesel 4-speed one of these for sale here in Canberra $2500 and itís not a completely rusty pile shit. But that means realistically if you spend anything but a pot of big and a couple of rattle cans youíll be over capitalising.

                              That seems reasonable. Anything half decent here seems to be between 8-15k :/ Even more Toyota tax than the 80 series unless it has a 1hd in it.

                                Dodgy up the holes and paint it in Sandy taupe raptor liner. Some muppet will pay plenty for it then.
