When I restored it I sandblasted the entire frame and axles but then I smoothed out the axles with sandpaper and actually used body filler on the outside frame rails to make them smooth, then I sprayed it with the eastwood rust encapsulator, then I sprayed on a few coats of chassis black on the frame. On the axles I topcoated with gloss black centari enamel. The truck is essentially a garage queen but I've put about 20k miles on it since then (10 years ago) and it still looks mint. No peeling, no cracking, nothing. Hopefully it works just as good on the 05 daily driver.
Welcome to Tacomaworld!! Wow, I didn't think there were any old timers left!
Now, you can't just come in there and tell us about your FJ and not post picts!??
Love the old FJ's..Toyota should bring those back again and I'm talking about the same style (2 door, top come off) FJ as it used to be.
