Dealers? I got something for the Starlet and it was surprisingly cheap. Or try a factors who stock ADL Blueprint bits?

1973 Datsun 1200 B110 2dr; 1980 Laurel 2.4 C230; 1988 Sunny 1.6 LX N13
1992 Camry 2.2GL project car (still on hold); 1993 Camry Estate 2.2GL (was daily driver, written-off and awaiting repair)
1996 Lexus LS400

And a couple of modern Toyotas.

Blueprint is the way forward as SL says, would be very surprised if they can't get hold of one at a good price!

I like to hassle my local Charlie Browns/Motorworld for Charmant bits from Blueprint and the likes quite often, went there to get a set of points today and they knew the car and year without me having to ask. Excellent!Just a shame for these old Japanese things that panels and trim aren't as freely available as service bits.
