A little sanding and a couple coats of SEM color coat?
That's weird. I'm thinking of sewing some leather on mine as well as a matching steering wheel cover and chicken bar wrap. Maybe @ToyotaMatt will make us some billet aluminum is shiny black?Thanks Spook and MoaByte. I just painted a new gray dash with SEM brown and it came out great. I'm not sure what will happen when I try to sand the rubber, but it sure worth a try. Maybe coat it with an epoxy first? I was spooked (no pun intended) about buying the handle P/N above because they say it doesn't fit a 1988 FJ62. Doesn't seem like it should be any different from an FJ60, but what do I know?

Yeah he needs to get on this (says the guy who's been meaning to call him for several weeks and still hasn't had the chance; ie me).....
I'm like 99.5% sure the decal is exactly it! Well done and thanks...PM sent.I’m like 94.20% sure. This is your unicorn decal
I agree...it shows up as NLA now at Partsouq, but appears to be available at Megazip and ToyotaPartsDeal. I've had bad luck with TPD...their site shows availability, but after I order I find out otherwise. I've never used Megazip.
I tried to order through ToyotaPartsDeal and the order was cancelled this morning. Megazip sucks at taking your money and then canceling the order. . Looks like it’s used, refurbished or maybe the 70 series will work.I agree...it shows up as NLA now at Partsouq, but appears to be available at Megazip and ToyotaPartsDeal.

There’s no difference in the late 60/62 parking brake. They are interchangeable. May work for the early models but I’d have to dig around a bit to verify that. It’s been a while since I’ve worked on oneI'm like 99.5% sure the decal is exactly it! Well done and thanks...PM sent.
Also, @Spook50 did have the correct part number for my FJ62. Other part sites (like Passport Toyota) show that P/N 46210-60041-01 fits my 1988 FJ62. Maybe a different color, but it is the same part otherwise. I think getting that part new and painting it SEM brown will be the preferred option for restoring that part.
@Bazz suggested the 70 series, and although it is close there are some differences that might require a bit of fab work...not sure. Wonder if anyone has experience installing that 70 series handle in a 60 series?
Thanks everyone....your help really makes a difference.
