    Does anyone know if the funky body stripes were a factory, port, or dealer instal. I have seen many variations. I will try to post a picture of the ones that came on my 60 tonight.

    My 60 had them when I got it; I may have them reapplied one day. I guess you'll have to go to a professional decal place to have it done.

    I liked the "woody" style decals I've seen on several 60s

    I ask for a 70 serie stripes at my local Toyota dealer and the price was $$$CRAZY$$$. To much crazy for a think I can't see when I'm in my Cruiser ;).

    But... it's look cool.

    Are they not wood-grained contact paper?

    Tink, that is possible. But I think it looks good. Maybe all the ones I've seen were done well, but it looks good on the right color.

    Here's a pic of my rig with the wood grain...Yes, they are decals and I have heard they were a dealer option.
    Unfortunately, when I start with the body work, they will have to go. Ive got some NASTY cancer on the pass. rear door, where Im gonna have to replace the whole thing. Its a bummer, cuz I really like the decals. :crybaby:

    Woody look

    I had the wood pannel decals on my 60 when I first brought it home, it had written "Trim-Line" at one end.
    Just like "chicago" I removed mine in order to address some rust issues.
    I considered reproducing and thought about using "Mac-tac" which you could probably find at the local hardware store, it's the stuff used to line your kitchen cupboards, it comes in big rolls and because it's not specialized for automotive use, it's dirt cheap.
