it was rough but fixable, I could not believe the cost of secondhand panels, those that could be repaired were :thumbsup:

The thing about older Landcruisers and to a lesser degree older Hiluxes is that they retain a much greater value than their competitors, and this influences parts pricing on the secondhand market. I guess the good news is that if he looks after it properly he'll have a good ute for a decade or more and still get a large proportion back of any money he puts into it :thumbsup:

I would love to do it for you Stix but my eye's are not as good as they were
I haven't done a lot for a long while especially something like an EH
makes me feel good that you asked though :drinks:
this landy was rolled, I slowly did the panel work and at first would not do the paint
but once I started I enjoyed it so much I changed my mind,
the young bloke who owns it was rapt and will have it for a long time :thumbsup:

Ya shoulda asked,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

I've got a complete spare one just sitting in the shed doing nothing.

I've currently got the motor (4.2 1HZ) and its gearbox advertised for sale.
The motor is perfect (only done about 50,000 clicks since reco)
I do not fear death itself... Only its inopportune timing!
