I live in Japan and rare parts aren't easy to come by even here, there's just not a lot if this stuff left out there. Most of the rare stuff i see on the market is coming out of Australia for some reason.

And that's why it's a cool/rare/badass part! Also, it already has the solenoid and T fitting on there, so there's that. Just have to figure out where the heck I'm going to mount it

Very cool find
Have to say I am enjoying this thread even though I don't really have anything to contribute

Keep the cool stuff coming

The very last brand new 89-92 taillight. I have two more on order, however most likely that will never happen.

Are they really just about gone?

I bought a brand new set probably like 2 months ago, left and right (my center section is like mint but the left and right are separating from the housing) from the dealer and they got there in 3 days with employee discount just haven't put them on yet lol

Yes, that's why I grabbed them. The right side has been gone completely, and now from what I'm told from Toyota, so is the left. I picked up the last few, and they werent cheap. The first one I bought for myself arrived in about 8 days, the second two were a few weeks I think. If I could find even one right side, I would be ecstatic

Lucky find bro! If you run across another one by accident let me know!

Hey mate, I actually ended up getting it from a guy out of the UK of all places. He purchased it many years ago for a project that never happened and was offloading it so I grabbed it from him.

Have you guys ever seen this center console thingy that goes on top for the MK3. I think it was a option on the GA70. I'm thinking of buying it just cuz I think its kinda rare...

I would think that would sit up way too high once installed. Hard to believe that this would be a factory option. Looks like someone took it out of a conversion van and bolted some brackets to the bottom. The design and the fabric don't seem to match any MK3 interior that I've come across either. May just be the picture. Still an interesting piece tho.

Wow. Even worse than I imagined. I thought it was going to replace the lid entirely.

On a side note, what the hell is up with the small section of bright red carpet in that interior?
