very interesting! Did you know that this is a U.S. military edition of Japanese plate? The "Y" has often been thought to represent Yankee (because all U.S. military members have Y-plated cars), but it's actually short for Yokohama. The "89" isn't the year, that number denotes which vehicle category. I believe that "8" series is camping/recreational, but this is a clever way to include the LC year ;).


also KEVIN ,

please check this out , it's one of my best concept visionary shorts yet i think ........🤔

I simple LED total dash and all Vehical bulbs 💯 % update has taken me to a newer place here a bit


I started by carefully shop vacuuming off the dust and age and time from

Both sides of cluster them I found myself with my quill 🪶 in hand and scibing my JiS yellow on the white fonts and graphics

On to the main cluster of gauges , I went all in with the kanji and some simply complex universal language logos too ….

And well it should pop with a never seen or done before wonder and perhaps a puzzled person with no imagination 😅

And that is my inspiration here ….. puzzle 🧩

I feverishly want to do a light shade modification to allow more LED Lumens in

But I also have this issue to contend with ?

The polycarbonate lens is scratched to hell !!

So I will polish out first like
I did the tach

Only problem is this one is way way way worse I hope it’s even restorable ??

Well let’s dive in with 2 jis feet and find the H#LL out !

Inital scroll work done I created a JDM pure yellow speed range STARTING AT 60 mph and ending at 90mph and a oarnge DANGER zone after 90.1. MpH


This one will get less new graphics but better killer kool ones at same time !

Without the lens implace dismal are the LED Lumens ..

Final Installed Images of Cluster Meter Free-Form Enterprise JDM Theme .......

- i was / struggling to get correct photos of each gauge pod , my Iphone Camera or stand alone NIKON Digital will not focus properly ,?

i thought it was my new LED update , but then realized i had hand polished out the factory Polycarbonate 3 clear pod lenses so dam well , maybe better then

factory original , there like mirrors now in-fact LONG Live Nu-Finish Scratch and swirl remover , stuff is magic in a bottle and absolutely works wonders beyond

my wildest dreams ! ✨💫✨

Final end product night time only LED illumination shots :

I am happy with the results with one exception ?

I need to source and research a different orange day-glow type pigment as it yes pops during the day time but not as spectacular as the JDM yellow at night , it’s much more pronounced then the camera phone images suggest but indeed not as brilliant ?


My main switch panel layout is mostly sorted out as I mention the rear wiper has been relocated to the far RH stand alone switch knock out blank under the radio via a Kustom OEM toyota correct 4pins connectors sub harness I made on the fly , I will document that in further detail later in another post as it turned out to be simply the best possible idea in the end because it’s a non-illuminated factory rocker switch and is lit up a bit from the 70 series RHD full size single din radio I have updated to full on LED as well too , ✨ shines down on it in a unplanned and interesting way ….

I plan on swapping the cig illuminated trim ring for a blue one

Also installing a @ChaserFJ60 double usb assy. OEM inspired and themed outlets as well with a blue LED also

I still need to BLUE LED the A/C switch button itself and the hvac panel too

Other then those 2 small details the Entire Cement Ghost is now 💯 % Full On LED updated inside and out …

Pretty dam kool indeed , I also SKUNK-WORkS ,s. up a plug and play fully Digital Turn Signal Flasher / Hazard Relay i will go into more detail. below ,
