    I hit a deer a few months back. My 1st gen Tacoma (1999) suffered some damage in the front right grill and headlight. The damage appears to be to the grill and headlight housing. Lights and turn signals still work, but they are both kinda floppy. I'm hoping to do this fix myself. Does anybody know where I can get these parts. Or maybe some additional insight would help as well. c8118bd0faf321186eab1f590e88e568_ac851bd7fa05bbf3fa8baa887e7a3f7ad2a2bb47.jpga1dbaced1b6233579df7250158df6f00_fd4157d2d2bcf89e0670b293bbb85b9f4420b608.jpg380430ce4bab0a1969e453c752de12be_7d92b8cedad1ca3317921dc1785badbd83b51484.jpg

    Ebay I think is your best bet. I ordered a set of turn signals and they were $25 for the pair. They were shipped out of Chino CA and I had them in 2 days, but I live in California, so that explains the fast shipping. You don't indicate what part of the country you're in so it may take longer.

    They were aftermarket but I've had no issues with them after 2 years, they fit perfectly and looked identical to the OEM that I removed. I hope this helps you, good luck.

    I smoked a deer last fall and bought everything on Amazon. Grill, headlights, turn signal lenses, bumper, bumper upper valance, bumper lower valance, bumper brackets, one fender bracket and one inner fender liner. paid one quarter of what the body shop quoted me on parts cost and did the work myself in four hours on a sunday morning. got 2 grand from the insurance company and paid 580.00 for parts. banked the rest for insurance payments in the next year.

    Rock Auto is your best bet.

    Also, that tape is going to leave an awful residue on your paint that will be hard to remove. I'd try to take it off in the middle of a hot sunny day and use painter's tape instead.
