I have been looking to buy a good condition SFA but have been warned off by more than one 4x 4 enthusiast on the grounds that spare parts have become impossible to find -- particularly body parts.
Can anyone shed some light on this subject?

Welcome Peter! :thumbup:

Body parts are a problem but the rest is still available.
When your road comes to an end ...... you need a HILUX!.

I updated your profile to reflect your country of residence. :winkx:

Parts may be an issue in NZ and your SFA specs may vary from ours in RSA. Do you know what motor it has?

I don't know about RSA but parts particularly body parts aren't difficult to get at all in Botswana. The Toyota dealerships sell most parts. Others, like the 4Y mechanical distributor are a bit difficult to find at the dealership but can be found easily in spares shops like Motovac. :thumbup:

Hallo Martin (MCW)

Ek was opsoek na agterligte vir die "imported loadbin" tiepe, na n gesukkel het Toyota agtergekom hulle kan dit kry teen R2500 elk! Ek het toe maar die idee laat vaar totdat ek jou post gelees het oor Auto Body Spares in Krugersdorp. Baie dankie daarvoor! Het vandag albei ontvang en dit het my n hele R228 gekos vir albei. Ruwan van ABS is n regte staatmaker en lewer goeie diens.

Jean-Pierre daardie agter ligte mag miskien baie goedkoper wees maar wees verseker hulle is nie van dieselfde kwaliteit as die oorspronklike Toyota een nie. Hulle verbleik vinnnig.

But, you can replace them 21 times before you've reached the Stealer's price for one set.
