Love that scoop, not sure I have it in me to cut my original hood.
That is what is wonderful about metal, you can always weld it back. If anyone is looking to fill a container from Australia, I found fiberglass hoods down there....

I found some too, but at $1,200 delivered I’m going to have to wait on that for a little Bit. Not sure the price just hopping on a container with someone is. I like that scoop you found

I just ordered one of these for the troopy I am working on and it seems a good fit

Still accumulating parts. Ordered a Tuffy 023. I will adapt or move the brake handle to make it fit well.

Also ordered spark plugs for the LS.

taillight question.... it has a weird fog light tail light - but only on one side. Importer said that is the law in Spain....

anyway, what options do I have for better looking lights on the sides. I expect it eventually I’ll build a customer bumper and I won’t want the lights there. So basically I’m looking to replace the side lights and have them be the stop turn.

Correct, there are a few European countries that are like that.

Double check the new lenses will fit. I seem to remember a post a few years back that showed the recesses the lenses fitted into were a different shape between various models, but that was probably after 1990

I assume I will need lenses and backs, so the entire light housing.

found these, but don't list fj73

The bit I was saying is different is the size/shape of the metal on the fender. I wasn't sure if I made that clear. The blacked out lens are slightly larger on the 90- on models. Based on memory from a thread from 10 years ago.
