Working on an inverter that we can wire the headlights, turn signals and side markers to. Not full brightness but just a little bit. One of my guys suggested adding wireless speakers behind the grill as well.
X2 on the transformer. Just go look for an old transformer from electronics that has an output of 12v. Maybe a cordless phone or answering machine transformer.
Regarding "Living in the Past".... I see your point, but that trailer was ugly and useless. Really -- it looked like 2 or 3 feet long. That was easy to heckle and mock. To me, this is ART.... (plus if I ever do it, I don't want the nay-sayers to show up)
That looks to be correct. But I really only know when they changed from pot metal to plastic. I think the later Toyota still looked the same the way it attached that changed. SOR shows three different side emblems once they changed to plastic but really couldn't tell you the difference. It does look like the difference in the back emblems in post 78 was no rubber backing pad. Not sure when Toyota changed the 4X4 emblem to plastic but I'll you could use it up until 79 with no mods. Now if I could just find the 4X4 emblem for my pickup. When I bought my pickup SOR still had it listed as available. I called them as soon as I bought only to find it unvailable Back in the 96 catalog it was $10 brand new OEM I just pickep up a couple of their cheap stickers. Still hoping to find a OEM one someday.
Well Johnny if you really want to get technical that is a 78 and later hood. The extra lip in the center opening is pretty easy to see if you look in the unpainted picture. Not sure if it the whole 78 model year that had it or a mid year change.
