I have just picked up a 78 FJ40 shortee, there are few thing that I need to pick up like a jack, rear seat, bikini top and the other usual bits and pieces.
Any ideas of a good place to start from?

The jack is the easy bit, every Landcruiser since time began has the same jack and handles.

Go to the wreckers.

Whilst at the wreckers ask about the other bits.

Otherwise keep an eye on eBay and the Trading Post as well as the Trader Section here at ExploreOz.

Hi mate,
I have removed them.
Both are in pretty good nick and could be used without re-trimming.
One is the 2 piece fold up type from the earlier 1970's troopies and the other one is like the ones found in the later 47 series troopies and is one piece and folds up (similar to the 75 series too).
I won't sell seat belts as I don't know if they are still fine. They look OK but I'd hate to sell them and have one fail in an accident.
The RTA inspector down there would probably prefer new ones anyway.
As for cost..make me an offer and call IPEC for a quote maybe 25kg for both. I can bundle them up into one package for them to pickup if you organise freight.
Cheers
Dave

Thanks for the reply, Excuse my ignorance but I am not familiar with the early 70's troopies seating arrangement, are they the same as the regular jump seat facing side ways that can be bolted on straight to a FJ40 shortee? or any chance of sending me a pic.? also need to know where you are for postage cost.
A rough idea on the cost would be nice.
Thanks again.

Hi Mate,
On top of my posts where it says Member - Tourboy (Bundy QLD) this means Bundaberg 4670.
The one piece seat will bolt straight in as far as I know and the two piece will need a couple of holes in the wheel arch but the upright section will bolt straight up and both are side facing and fold up.
Different shorties have different holes so maybe they will all line up with holes.Image Could Not Be Found
$50 each as they are in pretty good condition I won't supply the bolts as they weren't real good anyway. Just the common 12mm head bolts for most of the mounts.Image Could Not Be Found
Cheers

Not quite sure what happened to the pics...the camera seems to be having a moment..lol
There was a bloke in St Clair advertising BJ42 parts on fleebay, he may have some seats and only near Penrith. (I'm a Blue Mtns fella myself)

Hey Dave
I guess I just have to take my chances and see what I can make of it.
The price sounds OK, but I will need to check regarding the shipping charges, they would need the dimensions of the parcel, can you organize a box and give me the dimensions also your account details, the pickup address and email address would be helpful.

Thanks again

Shawn

The size is 450 x 450 x 950 and is basically a standard removals carton with the extra heaght of one end open.
It would weigh around 20kg maybe less.

Thanks for the responses, by the way I am in Sydney also I noticed the rego paper says two seater is that mean I need to have it inspected after rear seat is fitted and also have that noted on the rego?

If you take up Tourboys offer you may find it a little easier than using a seat with a modified base.
Doing it factory style pleases inspectors and it will probably be just a matter of bolting them in.
The stock rear seats are getting harder to get.

I also would recommend posting on specialist sites such as Outerlimits4x4 and 4WDMonthly.

So it's not just a matter of bolting on the seat then.
Any idea on when the seats are coming out and the cost?

The easy part is always bolting in the seats.

Keeping it legal was and is always going to be the hair pulling bit!
