    Still looking good Hayden.. Surely that rusty part can be salvaged?.. I take photos too of what i can, to help with my memory.. Iv got loads of ice cream tubs full of Nuts and bolts washers and springs... Lord knows where they all go....... It will be some Big Jigsaw when it all goes back together..

    Available new from Toyota, £40 when I rebuilt mine. I found quite a few bits still available new for a lot less than certain third party suppliers are selling them for. Shop around.

    I reckon a bit of shot blasting that might be recoverable.
    Are you in touch with Simon Holton at toyota for parts?

    I've had them shotblasted and powder coated in the past but only when they are solid enough. I got some new ones when they were available imported for about £28 but that was a few years ago. Like Moggy said, try Simon Halton, he has been a big help to a lot of people.

    Headlights pulled apart lots of rusty screws. Rusty screws are probable my least favourite type of rusty fixing. The heads alway round out.

    I don’t know tbh as the body shop did it. I never thought they would have one but Andy lomas said to give them a try as he managed to get one for his Chevy blazer. Their stock holding is extraordinary!!!

    Yes I did get one out of stock for the Blazer but only a couple of years ago I got one for the Suburban no prob. Like Andy said their stock is very comprehensive.
