For sale are 7 new amber Koito body reflectors. Not sure if there is interest in these (I may have red coming soon). So just putting them out there. Mounting holes are 101mm apart.
$30 each plus shipping. Can easily fit a few in a small flat rate box if needed.
Thanks for looking.
Cheers!

If anyone would rather have red with the same metal body style, PM me so I can gauge interest. I think I can get my hands on a few for the same price.

The last set of red ones I purchased from Toyota years ago I sold for 150.00 a pair. Exact same Koito metal frame reflector. Just for price reference. 30.00 each is a great deal!

I personally like the look of the orange ones better than the red ones.

Nice L-2716 orange reflectors are hard to come by for the aprons of ~1968 FJ40's. Those didn't have 'ears', they had studs and a tapered rubber wedge.

You can use Chase's orange treats to assemble NOS period correct 1968 bling for these trucks.
Here's proof of concept:

For a new frame I first disassembled an NOS red reflector with studs and no 'ears'. That takes a jig described by @JADCRUISER:


The jig won't work with the stud free eared reflector so I had cut the side to release the pressure and pop the orange lens out. Here it is in its new home.

So all 12 red reflectors are spoken for and there are still 4 amber reflectors left. If anyone wants red reflectors still though let me know, and I will try to hunt down more.

All amber and red reflectors are spoken for at this time, but as stated above let me know if you are interested, and what color, as I hunt for more.

Ok, I have 7 more amber reflectors if anyone is interested. Reds ones are sold out but PM if you have interest and I can keep my eye out. Current source is tapped out unfortunately.
