one auto gone, one to go

1980 Toyota Landcruiser BJ40

One vehicle sold! One vehicle to go!

This past Friday evening, we said good-bye to one of our favorite possessions, a 1980 Toyota Landcruiser BJ40 that Wil imported from New Zealand several years ago. Wil has always loved tinkering with Toyota Landcruisers. However, now it’s time to spend all tinkering onboard the boat! My car is scheduled to go on the market during the first week of May. Then, my fingers are crossed that I’ll be able to borrow my mother-in-law’s van for a few weeks for all those last minute provisions. Hmmm . . . guess I’d better check with her first!

With new money in hand, we will now be able to pay for the possibility of farrow blasting the bottom of our boat. As she has been sitting on the hard for the past two and a half years, there are places in the bottom paint that are chipping and flaking all the way off. We sanded the bottom once, but it looks like we might need to bite the bullet, completely strip her, and start from scratch. Final bottom paint decisions are quickly approaching, such as which type of paint do we use, ablative or hard? As well as, what color do we want? Time’s a ticking!
