    Lol thank you 😃 It really is a lot easier than you think. It just takes patience.

    Thank you 😃

    The body is pretty much done now (body, floor, hood, roof and doors) so I can start on the fun stuff – the details 😎 That’s real fake leather right there!

    Thank you and no they are not. I’d intended for them to be but it’s a time sink. I can do it with a long servo arm but with half a turn to wind completely up or down it’s not realistic. The FJ (like pretty much all cars in the 60’s) uses a cable mechanism which I modelled 4 years ago but kinda didn’t get it to work. Well technically it worked, but it was jerky and kept getting stuck.

    I think I’ll do this as a side project some day… For now that door with the missing door card is simply part of the beaten-up look of the build. Like it broke, and the owner started dismanteling the thing to fix it but just never got round to finishing the repair. Like many of my own DIY endeavours 😉

    Bar obviously a fair bit of clean-up all the doors are in now.

    Lookin good Mike, big thumbs up, really astounds me how much patients you’ve got, your making me feel bad for not touching any of my builds for month’s 🙁

    What would look good on the door without a door card would be a pair of mole grips on the winder (cos that’s how it’d be in real life 😉 )

    keep up the good work

    Thank you. Stinkey Pete’s mole grip is already the handle on his toilet 😬 He might could go to the hardware store for a pair if it rains and he needs to shut the window…

    Anyway, spending too much time on the new house and not enough on tiny trucks. All I managed was the bobbejaanspanner (Afrikaans for monkey wrench, literally actually baboon wrench because that’s how they roll down there) door handle.

    It slides and everything.
