Unread post by bradleyzhu » September 8th, 2015, 9:39 am

Hi guys, Just brought a BJ40 a couple of weeks ago.
Now, this truck comes with pretty bad rust on the body, just wanna to ask you guys how much will rust repair cost, and also I wanna get a new paint.
I'm in Melbourne, is there any place recommended for rust repair and panel work in Vic?

How long is a piece of string?

The up side is that you can buy replacement panels to re-build almost all of a 40 series.

The down side is that you are looking at basically rebuilding the body from the ground up. It might be economically viable if you are handy and have a welder, paying someone you will be looking at a lot of hours and a bill to match.

Mate there aer two 40 series facebook groups.

I suggest you join these, and ask there. There is a heap of 40 series specific information, and its easier to upload photos.

PS. without photos there is no point asking the question.
