Here is the build of my 2007 FJ. Purchased it in October 2014 for a slow project.

Over the holiday's I vinyl wrapped it myself matte black and blood red. I did sections when I had the time, so I'm sure it looked ridiculous driving around for a while. If anyone is considering vinyl wrapping theirs. DON'T! PlstiDip it or something else. I've rebuilt motors that took less effort than this did. That or I was doing it wrong Shocked

















Next on the bucket list is bumpers.

To Continue....

Thanks!!

Tucked them in as much as possible. Had to go over a few spots in the door jams. There were a few pieces that were impossible or I refused to do that are PlastiDipped.

You've got some gloss-on-matte black-on-black details in front of the rear wheel well that look like they need better close up photos!! Tell us more about that!

Sure! As if it didn't stand out enough already, I added gloss black stickers in a few of my favorite things.

That came out real nice! Good job! I really dig the black and red together on the FJ. I have a black FJ as well and wanted to do more red in there to mix it up. The red plastidip color looks pretty good on the FJ and I am trying to think of more ways to use it. But so far I only have the emblems done in red.
I say my FJ is black but it's really "pinstripe" with black accents! LOL!

I did the roof, skid plate, and vents (under the windshield) in red. I want to get all the yellow pieces out of the interior and switch them to red.

The gloss stickers on matte background ... outstanding!

I hadn't picked up the red on red F bomb at the top until the close up. That's great detail work.

Installed new front axles and a Supreme Suspensions 3" front leveling kit over the past two days. Quite happy with it.
