I know this is a weird request but I am putting together a wall art piece and need some unuseable parts. Broken switches (any and all) that are no longer working but look fine when mounted in the dash, FJ40. Also heater control cable knobs, and both small defroster ducts for the side windows. Let me know if you can help me, I don't want to use good parts that should be in one of our trucks. Pic below, thank you!

here is what i have for you :

- you can use a short body style 2nd gen wiper switch for EVERY pull switch KNOB and ALL 3 planned control cables too , CHOKE , WARM PULL , FRESH PULL .....fyi

this way your Sculpture Dash Wall ART Project planned will be close to wall and flat to wall as u so choose and desire


using broken cables Core GUIDE tubes as u have pics above will KICK youre dash OFF the wall like 7-8" easy


this is NOT my first RODEO , building a WALL ART fJ40 DASH for some body , i have 4 under my belt , one with ALL back lit knobs illuminated pull switches in LED

now that was BADD AZZ ! :D


I also included a extra switch core and knob for your optional FOG / AUX Lamps pull switch location nearest ash tray

You forgot to mention the CIG stogie igniter so im
Reminding you , that well your getting one too …

Matt,
Great idea with the short wiper switch body. would you happen to have correct mid 70's switch knobs so its period correct? I will use the cables I have which do not work properly anyway. I am missing the fresh pull button on the end of one of those cables. how about the two little def ducts? shoot me a price of what you need for these parts. thanks for your help, told ya...... youre the only one!

Bump, still could use some help with this. if you have just the knob for a switch and its damaged or stripped out it will work for this project! need side defroster ducts? if they are cracked and no good to you I would love to have them.

For all the guys out here who have tons of collectable parts for sale. Toyota Matt is the guy to be like! he has helped me locate all the difficult parts to find and as offered solutions/alternative ideas to solve some problems I have run in to. Very affordable parts, easy to contact and great communicator!

Thanks Matt, received your package and was blown away. You did this a year ago with some electrical/wiring needs for a harness I rebuilt. your a GEM dude!
