Yeah, I'm sure. And these were parts people that got me my info.

What do you mean by parts people. Have you ever ordered one.
Toyota Customer Relations is where parts depts have to call in order to find out about japenese parts they have to be assigned a reference # and then forward the reference # over to Tech Support in order get anything out of Japan. I went straight to the source at Tech support and they told me status D come up on the part#'s.

If you seriously can get them somehow. Post up a pic of one and I'll buy a couple sets off you.

About three weeks ago I called all over the place looking for a dealership that would help me out. One of the dealers pointed me towards a different dealer in California. He said they would be my best bet and gave me the phone number. I called them with a whole bunch of numbers in hand and asked if any could be found. They called back a few days later and said they could get some, but not all since some were discontinued. One of those that I could source was the gray door decals. They are around $85 a piece.

I think the difference between your story and mine is that you're talking to people that look on the computer and see that something is either in production or not. Whereas I'm talking to people who might possibly know where to look and see if that PN is in warehouse x's inventory. You're probably right in that it's discontinued, but realize that the day they stop production there are still 1,000 units sitting on someone's shelf. I'm guessing that I have benefited from my contact actually finding a few.

Can you dropship a set to me. shoot me a PM on price. I am gonna take them straight to phoenix graphix, so they can reproduce them based off the original decals. That way they will always be available and in the US. I picture years from now that nothing will be available at the dealer. Then the work I am doing today will really help everyone in the future.

You say years from now......and I'm over here sweating over the three weeks I've already waited to pull the trigger. I bet they could disappear in months if they haven't already. I'll place and order for two cars' worth on Monday and let you know what it cost.

I ordered four door decals. We should here back about availability in about two days.

What is going on in regards to the GT-Four rear deck decal? Those are for sure out of print and out of stock. I see all this talk about having them reproduced, but is anything actually taking shape? I need to know because that decal is the last piece of my alltrac that needs to be converted to GT-Four exterior styling.

Ok I currently have a brand new OEM TOYOTA

Toyota decal
Celica Decal


Thanks to Patrick in Texas I have some really really good stencils of the alltrac turbo decal

waiting on Chris Dittrick for a really good stencil of the GT-FOUR decal.

He may be a bit busy lately getting ready for ogopogo meet or whatever that is.


Once I have all the decals together, I will take the whole package with close to 100 pics down to Phoenix Graphix and drop it off.

Do you have any sense of the price range that these might end up costing?

Will get on to those pics asap.

Well I don't want to deter or get people excited about a price. If I'm not sure. But I will tell you that they sell a entire Trans Am Firebird Decal set for $289 That's with the big bird on the hood and all the decals.

They told me it'd be around $80 for the whole set, possibly less. But that came out of Justin's mouth and not the owner.

So it will likely cost a little less than the dealer.

No problem. If you in that range, even +50% you will probably get a lot of interest.
