This was The HOLY GRAIL of what i lived for , making a factory Defect Correction plate !


Yes MR T F'd up back in 1971 and stamped the wrong frame # .........

I had the privilege of making it right & Period correct as well

the mis struck plates hangs over my desk as a daily reminder of what a special unique privilege it was to help so many in a way i could ..........

I finally was able to install the new fender wall I.D. plate, that I purchased from you, in my 1973 FJ40 .

It's positioned a little higher than original, since the original was somewhat hidden behind the battery tray.

Due to my aversion to drilling holes in painted metal, I cut the heads off the stainless steel sheet metal screws and super-glued them to the plate. I then used the 3M VHB tape to attach the plate to the fender wall.

Looks great! Thanks again for a quality product!
