I had just built some tube fenders for my 40 and I built the turnsignals into the front edge of them....therefore, I have the 2 factory turn signals that are almost new that I would part with, if anyone is in need. As I recall they were not easy to find and were kind of pricey!
Also, my old fenders, that have some trail damage on the inner 'skirt' and rust but still workable, I think.
Finally, I have 2 sets of chrome (and rust) wheels that fit on it. One set is the 'directional blade' type and the other set is the 'stock looking' toyota 5 spoke and I have 5 of each wheel. All have some rust but SOS pads and a little elbow greese and they clean up nice. :thumb:
Before I load up any pictures, I'd thought I'd see if there was any interest in any of this. Let me know if youd like to see anything and I will get some pictures and entertain any offers from my fellow cruiser heads! :cheers:

Martin,
$50 the pair, fair? I think I paid $60 each for them.

Sounds fair to me as long as they are OEM in good shape and the wires aren't cut.

I can't make the meeting tonight but if you have paypal, I can send the funds plus enough to cover a USPS priority flat rate box.

Martin, Let me get them off and make sure that are all I remember them to be! I dont have a paypal act but I am quite sure you are good for a check! Lets PM address' and I will send you a box for an envelope! I will get a good look at them tonight and get back to you.
Rezarf, I am very happy with my fenders. For being an insurance agent with a new welder and no experience....not too shabby. One kid I know that went to welding school didn't beleive I did them myself. I also shot a new coat of paint on the whole thing, while I was at it. I know, get a life, right?? I am uploading some pictures and will get them up later today!

I used 'pond liner' and made new fender liners, but I didn't take any pictures of them when I had the wheel off though.

I like the integrated lights...sort of Audi-ish :)

Turn signal removal.....failure! I was able to get the drivers side off but the passenger side is a no go. I deformed the hollow stud trying to get it off :( It still has a good lens/trim, and the drivers side came off ok. The trim and drivers side housing has been painted black as well. Sorry, I guess I should have pulled them off before posting their sale!

No problem, thanks for checking on it though. I'll probably splurge on some new ones when I get around to fender replacement/rust repairs.

Tonka Toy -

If you're the creative type, get a hollow lamp tube piece and some nuts at Home Depot, and you can fix a mangled Land Cruiser turn signal post. Cover everything in anti-seize compound for easy removal next time. It's a good way to rescue an OEM turn signal that otherwise has no issues.

Steve, good idea, hadn't thought that one out!
Martin, when you go to replace your fenders, you may want to consider the metal tech kit. I am really happy with the way they came out, gave me probable another 1.5 to 2" clearance just by way of not having that out edge 'turn down' the stockies had. Unless of course, you are going for the stock look.
