I remember someone mentioning in a thread about importing double cabs into the U.S., that the glass had to be removed because it was not D.O.T. approved. I don't know how that would apply if you were to ship glass only though.

I tried it in 2002. Bud Rosenburger did one that year as well. Both from OZ. Had to be sent disassembled, IIRC, and was going to run about $4500 with shipping to the east coast. I wanted to put one on my old xcab frame... but couldn't justify the costs.

finished off the rear wells






plated the interior and got the b-pillar cross member welded in






and was helping a friend with a 3.4 swap into his 84 and also made him some new dials for his inclinometer, we're about half way through the wiring


next is finishing off the exterior of the b-pillars and then the roof

Great work, man!


How did you do the dials?
I need custom dials for the inclinometer in my FToy!

if it all matters to you but you can modify your inclinometer to tilt up to 45 dregres rather than the 30 degres it goes now. all you do is cut out the little pieces of plastic on the track that the weight rides on that keeps it level. or i think 4crawler has directions on how to do it. but yours is neat mine had a 4runner on it i havnt seen the pickup version

It might sound kind of ghetto but I just scraped off the old pictures, drew up new ones and printed them out, darkened them up with a pen and sharpie and then glued them on the clear dials. It's cheap but works and looks good. If you send me a side and back shot of your FToy i'll draw some up for you and send you the file

thanks for the advice, i'll have to try that out when I go to redo my dials when the body is done

Very sick! Are you going to do dual sun roofs? Are you rear windown/doors going to have straight glass or are you going to incorporate a stock door?

thanks guys, it's only going to have the one sunroof as i'm just using up all the parts i can. The rear windows are going to be set up like a 4 door 4runner's where they have the stationary glass towards the back over the fender, and then square glass at the front that will roll down

like this only mine will be square, no slope:
