@ Johnny Christensen: Wow, 22 years?! - If they've lasted that long than the original parts are defiantly a wise investment. Especially if they've lasted for that long in a mining environment.
Where I live I saw a couple Toyota 70 series land-cruisers up for sale that came from a mine. They were only 4 years old but their frames were riddled with rust. When I talked to the seller he mentioned how the brake cables in particular required replacing in a few months time. Any part, let alone truck in itself, that can last more than 10 years in a diggy-hole has my vote for holding a skookum title.
I suppose it's fair to say that when Mercedes were Mercedes would they create higher quality parts than Toyota themselves.
@ Baddy: Thanks baddy, this is really good to know. Honestly said it's relieving to hear. Before I thought that I'd no choice but to pay a premium for a possibly NLA part. Cheers mate!
@ Inkblotz: Oh my God, you're such a life saver. Please do! and name me your price. So long as it can fit on a 2400mm SWB base and have the two bolts I am interested in either the right or left. Thank you so much. I currently own a perrot brake cable, brand new. I can offer that. And /or an amount of money of your choosing via paypal.
@ Dcurbet: Perhaps once the covid19 thing is over I'll come over for a visit in the states at a friend's place. And for whatever it is worthwhile to know these are the parts that I only managed to find:

I tried to look for the english links for those others whom may stumble into this thread. Also sorry for the late reply, the website crashed for me only 10min before this reply was made. So I had to retype this all!
