I can't wait to see what all you have planned for this truck. Awesome build so far!

Peter (pnorvell) - If you're serious about the tailgate, I'd get on that ASAP. The number of those parts available is small and shrinking. I had the good fortune of finding someone selling a rust-free Hilux tailgate from the late 1970's for about $70, but those deals are hard to find... if you find the part you want, snap it up. That's my advice.
Or do a wrap style decal, then they can do the drop shadow effect on one piece of vinyl. Should run you around $30-40.
Just did these real quick.
Top one is a drop shadow, the bottom two are 3D effects...so you can get the "look" of the vintage tailgate, without any fab work.
I don't know what the vintage 70's Hi-Lux Toyota font is off-hand, this looks kinda close...
I dunno, I think this is all it needed for a "retro" looking headlights...
Toss on some retro decals...done!

Containerized, when are you bringing that thing over? I live in Jinja and am starting to consider shipping a vehicle over vs buying here. Are you in Uganda now or coming back soon? We need to connect.
Great info though!

Any sign company can make those, I have good place here in Tucson that will do "mimic" reproductions of the originals.
Here is link of the graphics for various years: http://www.jamesdeancreations.com/toyota.htm
Those retro decals I pictured above, but using grey tones would be pretty hot on a white truck.
Could use the newer Toyota logo font as well, since was on the early 80's Hiluxes.

jhan - You're in Jinja? I have a house between Gulu and Kitgum. Would you be interested in a modded 2007 FJC? I have one that I'd happily sell at a very reasonable price to a fellow Expo member. Would save you the cost and import taxes to Mombasa, and it's a great truck with suspension, steel bumpers, winch, 110v inverter, Garmin mount, XMITTERS, etc. already done. Recent full service. Send me a message; the FJC is on UAQ plates and the taxes are already paid. As I'm moving to a different site, I'm pretty sure I can sell the FJC to you for SUBSTANTIALLY less than it would cost you to get a Hilux, FJC, or Taco into the country.
