Give me a chance to get home. I took those pics right before pulling out of Leith Toyota for my 2+ hour drive home. Now that I am here, the panels are off, painted and drying and the red is no more.

Looks good. I used rustoleum satin black to spray paint the exposed body and water bottle. It makes a big difference. Now keys see this FJ on the trail!

how long ...wow good question...honestly i dont know the reason i dont is because i didnt work on it all day everyday...couple hours here couple hours there...i had to share time with Scottydogs sons bumper and bed bar...if i had to do it "fast" i could get it all done in 2 weeks...but that is taking into consideration that i can get the materials all at once...i have to get the materials cut and bent. after that its pretty much bing bang boom...

I was surprised at how quickly the install went. Funny part is that we talked after as long as the install itself took. 45 min install and 45 min BS session with my best guess. Wish I lived closer out that way. There are a lot of great people that I am sure my family would be friends with if we had time to hang out.

Now that's cool... Weren't you guys parked near each other at Leith last year? Good you guys got to hang out. This club is full of great members we just need to make sure to meet others at events outside our clicks.

I agree 100%. We can't rely on anyone but ourselves to make things happen. Put together an interesting event and people will come. I challenge everyone/anyone to organize an event in their area.

I enjoy the wrenching days. BS's and skinning knuckles, does it get better?

Im inclined to agree with that! I go to Mike's and there is maybe 30 minutes worth of work done and 3 hours of talking! Always good times though!

That is what hobbies based on vehicles is all about. Getting to know the vehicle itself and the people that enjoy it as much as you do. Can't wait for the meet!
