FJ Steering

Hi All,

I am building an FJ up as a daily driver and first thing on the list is good steering. The motor will not be a 138, probably a 305 chev, so a colapsible link will be req'd in the steering. With this in mind what is the best steering setup I can go for, I know there is probably a limited amount of choice but I thought it was worth the ask.

HR Ute Modifications

Hi,
I've just got my first Hr and it has a 186 in it and it its a bit slow. I want 202 motor in it or i could put in a bigger and better carby(What type) and extractors but at a larger price. What do you think?

Also the inside the roof the the interior is all ripped and looks impossible to fix. Do you know any way cheap to patch it up (maybe some sort of adhesive material)?

Ive got bucket seats but i want a bench seat for 3 people. Do u have 1?
