TUFF FJ

Post by woody2 » Wed 04 Apr, 2012 9:37 pm

Thought I'd start a thread to throw a few pics in as the car progresses...

First e fitted some aftermarket lights. Needed a little bling but it helps me get the lights off the rear bar at the back. Chucked some HID's in at the same time but no pics of that.

Then got the Tint done. Felt weird driving around and everyone seeing me in the front seat. It may be a little dark. But... meh...

Image

Image

Image

Painted the front grill as a trial. Will do the mirrors and the door handles next week to match.

Image

My fave part so far. After a little messing around, and a bit of loving to the brake caliper from a linisher, I fitted a set of 315/75 16's. It now looks tough and Im a happy camper...

The old tyre VS the new tyre...

More to come....

Blacked out trim on the front looks good, and love the wheels.

When are you going to do something with the white roof (I remember you mentioning it a while back)?

No I cant, but that's probably because there's a really big tyre in the way :D

200 killer wasps do the trick alright... Will do better in a year or two when theres a blower hanging off the side...

Bar work is coming soon. Along with my "Zombie Response Team" sticker...hehe

Roof and bonnet are getting wrapped Anzac week. Should be heaps different then.

And yes, I can see out the rear window. Sort of...

Looks awesome. have you had it off road? I can imaging it would be very capable as it shares the Prado chassis.

Ian, Stereo will be a Dyn three way front but using the 9" mid and a Morel Piccolo tweeter. A Dyn 304 bridged will run the lids giving them about 340rms each. An Arc 2300SE will run the midrange and tweets. Then another 2300Se bridged (about 1400wrms) will probably run a pair of Arc Audio Black 10's. Already have an Alpine 511E installed and I already have my name against one of the first 15 Arc Audio PS8 processors to land in the country.
