I posted a question like this just a few days ago mudgutz... Got a couple of replies. I'm about to do the research. I just bought an '86 tray back so now I have two with the problem. Seems that this is tyical. One of my vehicles is white so the fibreglass will be okay, but I don't know about colour matching. I'll post a result when I work out best price and options. cheers Royce

thanks royce much appreciated...yeah its typical everyone i looked at had the same..older ones anyway.....i bought my 90 for 10 grand so i could afford to put some nice after market goodies on , bigger rubber
lift and the like ......didnt seem to sit right with me to spend 30 grand to put a late model one in the bush and have to spend bucks for the good springs shocks etc anyway when at sale time youre only gonna tear up the bucks.....

Okay .... my research so far... Replacement steel windscreen frame from Toyota is $1400!!!!! Phew! Gympie 4WD $540 [didn't get delivery charge to me in Vic.]. FRP $451 and $66 freight. This is the best so far. This still hurts, but my $10,000 Supa Trupa has had about the same spent on it again, and will have a good deal more before I'm finished so I guess it's worth the investment. The lower panel is showing some rust too so I need to get into it as soon as possible with the fish oil etc. They recommend that you paint the fibreglass. The '86 tray will have to last a bit longer. Its a farm vehicle. Cheers Royce
