In a matter of speaking....yes, we have the mold for this part. No, we don't make them in our shop. We have a local Fiberglass shop make them as well as our other fiberglass parts we own.In talking with the owner of the biz - Tim Simpkins - he makes them and they are theirs made by them in their shop where they make them

Even if one produced and sold replica steel bezels for half this price, I think one would come out ahead...
Until just lately Mr. T has been real protective of the words Toyota and Land Cruiser. You can get replacement tailgates for the FJ45LPB with the word Toyota stamped on it. Just a few years ago all the aftermarket replacements were not stamped Toyota. I know someone who was making the Land Cruiser bezel ten years ago until he got a letter from Mr. T's lawyers telling him to stop or get sued. When I first saw LCS bezels on eBay I thought for sure Toyota would have put a stop to it. Something changed at Toyota lately, they gave permission for someone to have a blank VIN plate made to replace a missing one on a restore.Think about it,
These have been non-existent since 1964. If making a stamped steel bezel would have been financially feasible, don’t you think that someone here in the USA would have made them already?
