    1878 Fj40 - What am I missing? Dashboard Switches

    Hello! The beauty in the picture is my 1978 FJ40. It is missing some switches, and others look like they are not original. This FJ40 is pretty basic (Southamerican version, no fancy stuff, no heat, winch, power steering, etc.). What is missing? Hopefully only rubber plugs? Thank you!
