Wheel chocks

A nice find in the OEM toolbag are these original Toyota folding wheel chocks.. I suspect these wheel chocks to be a rare item, and not a standard part in tool bags outside Japan. At least I have never seen one before.
They’re listed at the EPC (Electronic Parts Catalogue) with part number 09184‑00031 and listed as a BJ44V standard item. They fit perfectly next to each other folded at the bottom of the tool bag.

After cleaning up I noticed they are still in good condition, which makes me wonder if I should repaint them… They’re not rusty whatsoever, they show just minor usage. They have their original decals, which are probably unobtainable, so I decided not to repaint them, just spray some silicone to prevent future rust.

    NICE!!

    i must admit i never got any original tool bag with my vehicle. Some really nice extra bits that you will never have a chance of getting again.

    Keep up with the website. It will really be a great tribute to the 44 once you have finished.

    These were also included in most (all?) Toyota cars sold in Ireland in the late 70’s/early 80’s. My dad’s KP-60 Starlet came with one, and I thought that they were so useful that I searched them out in wrecking yards, and I still have one in the tool kit of my 2004 VW Golf – can’t figure out why vehicle manufacturers still don’t provide these.
