The SEM trim black paint is great for those items like the rear lisence plate light holder.

what are your plans for the wheel well trim? Working dents out yourself or sending them out to someone?

The chrome wheel well trim I assume? The rear was flawless. I bought new front trim off EBay that is 98% perfect. Iíll see if I can work out the one small dent.

Thanks. 3rd timeís a charm on the dash pad. No sanding and lite fiberglass resin is the way to go!

How did you order the bulbs? Do you have the number parts or the type of bulbs for every switch/interior light?

Great question. I haven't mastered it just yet, but I'm getting there:

Dome: 3175
Doors/Cargo: 3021
Dash/Altimiter: T10 168
Small Stuff like Shifter Light: T4 Wedge 3528
Small Switches: T4 Twist Bulb
License Plate Bulb: 1156 (single bottom prong)
Brake Light Bulbs: 1156 (double bottom prong) - Haven't checked all of these though

Speaking of interior lights, does anyone know if there area actually bulbs in these:
- Rear Window Lock
- Rear Defrost Switch
- Rear Windshield Wiper

I believe they all light up, but cannot find a twist in bulb. I haven't opened them up yet as I was afraid I'd break them and it wouldn't make sense for them to have bulbs inside when all the others have twist type bulbs on the outside...

UPDATE:
There are bulbs in these, but I'm afraid of breaking the switch to swap them out. I did see an OEM Toyota Replacement bulb at the dealership - but my LEDs don't have long enough wiring to fit anyway.

Still working to piece together the rear. I have all but the corners, brackets/hardware, and center chrome piece (non-step). Struggling to find those.

Small Switches: I'm still working on these. I purchased T3 Twist Style for the Gray 4Runner. The housings were too small, but I was able to pull the LEDs out and put them into the OEM housing and they work fine.

I'm missing a housing on the Rear Window Up/Down, so I'm trying some T4 and T5 twist type to see if they will fit instead.
Thanks!

SR5 Graphics laid out on the guest room bed
so it can ďrestĒ before the install once the truck is back. Iíll wait 3-5 days after Paint is done to make sure itís fully cured before applying these.

I heard theee are the best value H4 Conversion lights out there. I also read they have a pretty good cutoff (not Projector level, but good none-the-less).

More to come on the actual headlight bulbs soon.

Still struggling to find:
1) OEM rear non-step chrome bumper, corners, brackets, and hardware
2) Drivers SR5 Gray carpet kick panel
3) Rear seat hinge covers in gray
4) Good OEM or Aftermarket floor mats (suggestions?)
5) OEM front wheel well and engine covers / splash guards (Iím sure I can make these

Iím also thinking of making a can-back style soft top. The Softtopper is nice, but not quite my style.

If anyone has a lead on any of these five items above, Please PM me!!!
