A nice detail with this Japanese cruiser are its original floor covers, still in good condition, not dried out or teared whatsoever.
Toyota used black or gray interior trimming for most of their Land cruisers around the world, but for their home market (JDM) they came with special editions; Known as the “packages”.
In 1980 they started with the L package, like mine, with tan colored trim in the interior combined with off white upholstery. this was only seen in the short BJ41 and mid BJ44.
The followup was the 1982 LX package, with dark brown trim and brown/white zebra pattern upholstery. Seen in the short BJ42 and mid BJ46.
The vinyl came out really nice when just cleaning with some mild green soap. Although after installing and inspecting the cruiser in direct sunlight, i spotted some areas that might need some attention later on. Not something that bothers me at this point.
The rear bench needs some paint touch ups in several places of its frame, I will leave it like this now. Nice little work for upcoming winter…
As you can see the sun starts shining over here, spring is in the air!!
