    Hey all,

    So i just got my '73 FJ40 and she needs quite a bit of work done to her so here is the problem i am facing.

    One
    I can do the work which would require me to rent a garage, buy or rent the tools that i would need for the job and take lots of time that i don’t have.

    OR

    Two
    i can take it to a shop and have them do the majority of the work and i will pick up on the little things that would need done.

    Keep in mind that i only have a small ratchet and wrench set and some of the work would require a torch, grinder, welder, ect...

    nothing beats pride of building something yourself. Even if it takes quite sometime, i would say do it yourself.
