I am now taking orders for my drop-in fog light switch kit.  If you are unfamiliar with it, you can check my thread in the tech section for more information and for installation instructions.

This kit uses 100 percent OEM parts.  The switch is only available off of a Toyota Starlet.  Terminals and contacts are the exact same as the ones used by Toyota. The surround that holds the fog light switch is an OEM Toyota part that is modified to fit.  Zipties are a low-profile, high quality brand.  They are much better than ones from Home Depot, Radioshack, etc.

 

Milspec wire is used, which is the same wiring that Mark from PanicWire uses in his harnesses.

 

The price for a kit is $160.  I also have switch kits that do not have the orange "ON" indicator light.  Those switch kits are $150, since they do not have the amber bulb.  This price may seem steep, so I will break down the cost to put it together.

 

$45 for the switch

$25 for the switch surround

$9 for the amber bulb

<$5 for contacts, wiring, and ties

$10 for shipping in a flat rate envelope in lower 48

$60 for labor

 

You can see that just the cost of all the OEM parts and shipping is nearly $100.  I think the overall price is fair especially considering how tedious it is to handcraft the switch surround to fit. 

 

 

 

There will probably be questions, so I will try to answer a few.

 

 

Who are you?  How do I know your kit is good quality?  My full time job is building and installing wire harnesses for an aerospace company.  I do this exact kind of work day in and day out.

 

How does this kit work?  The contacts are already crimped onto the wires and are inserted into the back of the connector that goes into the switch.  You need to splice the wires from the other end of the switch directly into your dimmer switch with the included flag terminals. This ensures the switch will dim just like all your other stock lights when you turn your dimmer knob.  All the wires are color coded to match the dimmer switch wiring for ease of install.  Check the link below to make sure your pinouts for the dimmer switch are correct.  The blue and yellow wire will go to your relay.  Power is drawn from the blank in the junction box located next to the battery.  The power wire is then run through the boot that goes from the driver's side wheel well into the driver's side kick panel.  Another option for pulling power is to get it from the fuse box in the lower driver's side kick panel.  In my opinion this is harder because you have to unplug nearly every connector and remove the fuse panel in order to install the other power wire into the back of the panel which will lead from the fuse to the relay.  You will need to file a millimeter or two off of every side of the inside ledges of your existing switch hole.  Go slowly in order to ensure good fitment.  Here is the link to the original thread to help assist with install:  http://jzxproject.co...showtopic=10637

 

How many kits do you stock? Not many.  Availability is based on whether or not I can get switches.

 

Will you sell me just the switch, or other individual components? No.  Relatively speaking, there isn't too much profit involved and there is quite a bit of time spent involved in getting everything together, especially modifying the switch surround.  I would rather sell a complete kit.

 

Can you give me all the part numbers so that I can piece this kit together myself? No.  I intend to sell quite a few of these over time, and would rather keep this information to myself.

 

I need help with my switch install! Can you help me? Absolutely! Feel free to post in either this thread or in the other install thread in the tech section.  I would rather you posted your questions in either thread instead of PM, since other members might have the same question as you do.

 

How do I order/pay? I take PayPal.  Message me through PM to order.

 

 

There are two members that have already expressed interest in purchasing the kit.  They are first in line, and I only have one remaining Starlet fog light switch kit left.  I do have a few other kits available that do not have the orange indicator light.

Thank you. Expect more oem style kits from me in the future. I might post a preview of another kit within the next month or two.

With all this smack talk I'd expect bigger balls, but I guess that's why you do it on the internet and not irl. lol this group is soft.

Bump for a factory fit kit. I got mine installed this weekend. The color-coordinated wires made install a walk in the park. Entire kit is well worth the money. Thanks again Casey

It's almost like it's the same guy posting on 2 accounts??

 

This is something most of us would happy GIVE to each other. Instead of trying to make a buck off of fellow self hating shitbox owners.

 

 

Let me know how Arkbear was though ;)

Thanks Zack, glad you like it. 

 

WhoreMouth, I'm not going to go out of my way and buy $100 worth of parts just to make $60 profit.  Filing each blank out is easily an hour with test fitting and everything else. 

 

I barely make shit off each switch by the time you factor everything in, like I did in the first post of this thread.

 

Let me call a fabricator and tell him "hey, could you please give me your _____ part?  Give it to me for free since your time, effort and money spent aren't worth anything."

My thoughts exactly........

 

I think we need more input from Rue.

Lol I didn't expect this thread to get derailed by pics of rue's dink. Oh well, it's all over the Internet, might as well be here too. A mod who will remain nameless purchased one of my kits. I'm assuming mods can police multiple accounts to show that I'm not frauding, but no skin off my ass if people buy the kit or not. I now have four Starlet and two non-starlet kits available.

i bought one, not going to lie and no reason to hide it from anyone except im notoriously lazy and it takes me forever to get stuff done on my car and i wanted to post pics of it installed and working.

i dont have anything to justify in terms of your price. i found the part numbers for what youre selling, decided it was worth my $$ for your time and bought your shit based on that.

if anything, i can be called out for spending money on this when i could have bought turbo parts... but i already bought all that shit.

ps rues dick was the decider for me. once we talked about cressida guys being too brokedick to drop that kind of money i knew it was for me ❤️
