Brought Home my first FJ 07 model

Whats up guys traded off my taco yesterday for a 07 FJ with 64k on it.
My kid is almost three and it was just getting to cramped for him in the extended cab. I love it so far my buddy had one and never had a problem out of it. Cant wait to get into it and start playing!

Nice collection of Toyota's! The FJ is one of the few vehicles i'd get rid of my truck for.

I know I love them! I saw them and thought damn this just keeps getting better. How does the back up sensor work im thinking mine might be bad? I push the button it beeps inside but it never goes steady when im getting closer to something.

Paint Help??????

Got some little stuff done lately. Put the LED mirror lights in today and started blacking out the silver pieces. When I got the FJ it had the toyota skid plate up front I had taken it off then decided today to skuff it up and shoot it flat black. I think turned out ok. I then took the center silver rear bumper insert off and did it. I installed some 55watt halogen fog lamps a couple days ago. Does anyone have any tips on taking door handles and mirrors off to paint?


The leds I boughht. Driver side in this pic I know daylight not helping.




Night time pic helps.






Skid plate drying.



Rear Bumper insert.




All for now any tips would be great thanks!

Little man helping me out in other words stealing my tools

Thanks, hopefully within the next year we will be able to add an FJ. We've got a 225 TT roadster that we don't drive anymore to sell, then trade the wifes Sport Trac for the FJ. Anyway, what your doing looks really good.
