custom works : MATCHBOX Toyota Land Cruiser FJ40

hye guys… yup i kno that my hyper-hauler still not completed yet.. but ive already started with a new project which is based on the Matchbox Toyota Land Cruiser FJ40… this is actually my favorite car and planning to get one if i got the money.. hehe…

my project started when someone told me this story… hehe….

then the owner (paul o’ brian) bring me his car and told me he wanna go to another discovery at borneo… so he asked me to do something with it because he knows that this time it is more challenging than his Bat Cavern discovery…

i tell him that “you need a set of rubber tyre”… and he replied “t-hunt$ tyre??? most of them are sporty” then i answer “of course not t-hunt$ tyres… this is much better than that.. just wait and see.. i’ll order it for you”…..

so.. off to the workshop….

then setting out my workplace…

got delivery… hehe..

test fit it first….

then searching for the owner.. he went to the nearby kopitiam to minum2… lol….

“wow!~ i didnt know they produce this type of rubbers… hehe!~”…. said Paul (yup. thats him.. all in white..)

need to order a new suspension in order to fit in this rubbers…. so another delivery guy come by… hehe..

the driveshaft also need to be re-custom and upgraded…

both set front and rear…

so its time to test fit it once again……………

here’s another closer shot to show the suspension system installed… hope Paul can see it but his outstation now…

anyway.. thats my progress until now… have spent almost solid 4 hours working on it…. anyway for the suspension here’s another option that ive tried…

today, paul came by and ask me to add snorkel and roof rack..

then later in the evening, all the chasis and suspension system has been fully assembled…. so now the car its complete….

Land cruiser VS Bone-scrapper (as named by bro Sinclair from HWCM)….

hehehe… well thats it… so this project was completed in 2 days which is a new record for me… Paul it actually not exist.. just made it up to make the story more intresting.. haha…. anyway, some of u guys may be asking if this wheels actually can roll or if its a static model… so it does rolls actually… i’ll post a vid of it later on….

happy customizing
