Fiberglass hood

Anybody know of a company that makes fiberglass body pannels for a fj40? I would like to replace my hood with a fiberglass one.

I've got one I'll sell you pretty cheap.. A lot cheaper than you can buy them thats for sure. Its got minor cracking in the paint, just needs to be sanded and a broken headlight. I even have the cutout fender wells that i don't use anymore.

Fiberglass parts

Try looking at the jtoutfitters.com site. I beleive they sell Malotte parts. Malotte also has their own web site. If you live in the rust belt fiberglass is a good choice however if you have steel used parts available and live in a metal friendly environment oem parts are probably better and maybe less costly.

and where do you think MF/SOR/JTO get their fiberglass shit from? It's all made by Malotte. Btw, fiberglass sucks ass... go with a steel hood and paint the fawker up real good and forget about it!
