Isn't there a lot of Hiluxes driving around in South America?
Wouldn't that be a shorter lead time for ordering parts, if you where to find any that is?

Just occurred to me that I remember seeing many of the Tacoma guys i follow on Instagram jump on their breaks when they see a Hilux suddenly appear just over the boarder(Mexico plates).

Absolutely true, I've attempted contact with Toyota dealerships in several countries in Central and South America (in english and spanish) and no one even replies. I'm not sure what else to do, I can't find any parts distributors or anything online based in SA... Very strange.

I just recently found a US Toyota warehouse that apparently serves the Mexican market as well and I've ordered the windows through Toyota. It's been a week long process so far and some paperwork back and forth. Amongst other disclaimers it's an absolutely as-is sale with zero support or refunds. Very strange from Toyota themselves, let's hope I get the right windows!

Thats crazy! Even from Toyota themselves not answering...

Hope your window deal comes through and they could probably help you in the future with parts!
