M Coupe ends being the Daily Driver!

I know shes not a lot to look at now, but a few replacement parts and adding the top for the winter will help. It makes me feel better that the Z can stay nice and dry and clean now, plus stop rolling up those miles.

My first car was a Land Cruiser (or I should say, the first car I'll admit to owning ). Post pictures as you fix it up! Still miss that car.

A few days work

Her she is after a weekend of work and ready to go thru the winter.
This summer she will get some nice wheels and a new bikini!
Sorry for the iPhone pictures, maybe that makes the FJ look a little better!

update

Top cleaned, vent removed, and repainted, main body buffed out and sealed.
All wiring problems solved. All that's left to repair is heater and wipers.

Nice FJ40. Don't make it too nice, otherwise you'll be keeping IT indoors and using the M as your daily driver!

That's awesome. I'm thinking I have to get into these old beaters after I pay of the Z in a couple of years.
