I too had a plan to swap the high for the low roof on mine. but before I got around to buying the wreck with the low roof, vandals jumped on it..

Funny to see how they rust in more or less the same places all around the world. Is yours also japanese made, or Indonesia?
I also had a spanish SJ413 Samurai but the rust was spread more all over on that one.
nice color, agree with the modern/ retro look with the white roof. Like the Slim bumper too.
