Looking into making some products for the FJ55 out of plastic. I am not sure of the exact materials, kind of depends on the application, but it looks like the sky is the limit. Don't know how many are going to become real, just wanted to get some feedback.

Snorkel
Door Panels
Half-Doors
Hoods
Tunnels
Fender Flares
Storage boxes

If you could build it, what would it be?
If you could buy it, would you?

glovebox compartment, plastic versions of OE side mirrors, some kind of insert where everyone is missing their factory ashtray!

By cargo panels are you talking about the panels in the rear? I am thinking about those as well with built in storage. Maybe drawers or tip out style bins. On the door panels I would like to incorporate some sort of external pockets and possible internal pockets for those that half doors or doors with no guts in them.

Front fenders. So I am not the only one with mashed fenders. I will check it out.

On the panels, would you be wanting to paint them or just buy a specific base color.

Thanks for the input.

Thanks. Missing ashtray's. I could have made a fortune. My rig came with all of them. Chucked them when I made my door panels.

I like the mirror idea.

I'd go with a FJ55 specific snorkle, and cargo area panels in a durable plastic that mimic visible aspect of the factory vinyl and cardboard ones. Something simple like the repro FJ40 plastic door panels, but maybe just have it held in place with double sided tape. I dont think I have taken my panels off but once.


Factory ashtrays? They were on the doors on most later ones(grab them from early Toyota cars in the junkyards-theyre the same on lots of cars and passenger sides are always cleaner than the DS ones), and early ones had the pull out style under the dash below the radio hole. If you are talking the plastic tray that can occupy the radio hole, its just like the FJ60 ones-not an ashtray, Sherpa has one in his rig.

Thanks guys. Any interest in an insulated plastic headliner. Could have built in lighting and overhead consoles.

Window channels. I hadn't thought of that, but I like it. I like the kick panel idea as well. Thanks for the input fellas.
