Week 1 

Check out this gorgeous Landcruiser in its amazing condition before the restoration process begins. As you see the body is all original with no damage and makes for a perfect starting platform for a perfect finish. You will also see this Landcruiser has been very well cared for and drives amazing for the miles. 


Weeks 2-3

In weeks 2-3 of the build, as you see we stripped down door handles, belt moldings, trim, bumpers, grills, lights and more. We started to get the body 100% straight and perfect. The masking you see in these pics were not for paint just the body work phase and touch primer. 


Week 4-5

In weeks 4-5 of the build, we primed the entire body.  We didnt stop there, we blocked/sanded the primer for a perfectly flat surface for the color base coat. All these steps are the difference in a great quality paint job. 


Week 7-8

We just pulled the Cruiser out the booth and reassembled. After the primer was blocked down, we applied the first base color coat of Sherman Williams Automotive Paint, after the first coat cured, it was surface prepped and followed up with a second coat of base color. Following the base color coat, we applied the first coat of Shermin Williams Clear coat followed by 2 more coats. Yes 3 layers of clear for that DEEP Show look. 


Week 9

Moving onto interior, we completely removed everything minus the dash to start with a clean slate. Notice how incredible the floorpan is, looks brand new!!!. Next step will be Dynamat, following by running all new 12 volt wiring for speakers,  power inverter, etc. Following that, all new carpet, and all new leather seats for all 3 row!!


Week 10-12

This week, we completely refinished all 3 rows of seating. Once the factory leather was removed, we rebuilt the bolsters on the front driver and passenger seating to give them a brand new feel. All 3 rows are refinished with a factory color leather and stitching. We also installed Heated elements with hi and low setting for both front seats. 


Week 13

A very important part of a build that gets overlooked by many builders and often skipped over is a high quality and high efficiency sound and climate damping material. This added layer of protection will block out much of the road noise, interior vibrations, rattles, and noises. This will also act as a insulation for keeping the interior at your desired temperature. 


Week 14

This week we added all new Carpet with added padding and thick rubber backing for added comfort, overall feel and quality. Every inch of carpet is brand new. 

Week 16

This week we will be installing the all new leather seats and wiring the heated front seats
