Anyone have a list of fluids they use for the above FJ40 based in the UK. including the below:
Plus a recommendation for a battery would be useful.
Thanks Bos, I have taken the quote with Import my Car, now I deal with the Freight forwarder and this company. Will see how it goings, as the truck went into the container with no battery and most of fluids drained so need a bit of work before its road worth and then put it through its one and...
Thanks, yep the NoVA and HRMC stuff doesn't look that straight forward and is an inspection always required?
I'm thinking about using a car importer service, like shipmycar.com, see if it works out!! Think they can unload.
Other thing is the cars fluids have all be drained and I'm worried...
I'm importing a 1978 Landcruiser from Indonesia and its coming in a 20ft container, any advise on the steps I need to do to start driving it on the road?
Also how do I get it out of the 20Ft container the shipping company says it has to be reversed up to a bay for the car to be pushed...
Picked one up recently in the states and brought it back on the plane, this is how I got it, I haven’t changed anything and it seems to work with the propane bottle!!
Shame the 3.9kg bottles are going MD’ed!!
Got myself a welder, so going to try and make a swing out for BBQ and Gas, or some kind of box etc.
So will use the 2 inch hitch, and want to build something like the below from Wilco!
So what can you use as the hinge...
I am in the middle of using them, rust treatment on the 80 plus some other issues.
They are very busy, so will be interesting to see how they do!
Based in London so was very keen to find someone local who knows Toyota LCs and means I don’t have to drive over to Hereford!!
Folks, looking to an import a 78 FJ40, so over 40 years old. Would I be able to drive it away from the port, or would I need to get it transported home? So I think I need to pay the 5% vat and complete a NOVA and get insurance, can this all be completed before the FJ40 arrives? Any other advice...
Obviously a bit slow on the whole ULEZ expansion and living in Bromley, what a massive PIA, need to seriously think about the LC, it’s a 94 so would need to keep it for another 9 years to get classic car status. Or think about selling it, or just pay the money every time I time it off the drive!!!
With a JDM FZJ80, you should get the fridge in between the front seats and rear air con as well, plus grab handle for passenger. I would go with OBD-II variant so post 94, then you can strap on a turbo (if you can find one) with little modifications but also opens other options, a supercharger...
I like the shelf, but I have diy myself, the one thing I would change on the above design, is to have the front hinged, so folks in the back seat can also access stuff, I use it to store coats etc, and I would like a hinged front panel
Live in the SE as well and for that big kind of job I would recommend Overland Cruisers, just need to jump on the train to get back. I have been looking at LAR 4x4 but they didn’t get back to me on some work required
So decided to make some black out blinds for the 80, hoping to off-road in Wales with just the wife, so instead of the tent, going to try and sleep in the car!
Also to use the diesel heat to give us some heat.
Bought the material from eBay and then used bits of paper to create a template to cut...
