Below is a link to an eBay listing that shows a Z20 fender with a little chrome piece/light. I've been wondering what these things are called for a while now, but can't seem to find an answer. If you know what they're called or can send me a link to one that I can buy, it'd be much appreciated!

Thank you!

Depends on their function, but they would either be a 'fender light', 'side marker', or most likely a 'tell tale'. Tell tale lights usually flash in turn with indicators, or light with parking lamps... Neko.

In the Mopar world, they are called turn signal indicators. They were on just about every Mopar I owned. Don't know if those are aftermarket or OEM. I have never seen them on a stock Toyota in the US.

Thanks for the tips guys! I'll have a look around the 'net and see what I can pull up!

P.S. - I've tried "side markers" before, but I usually only turn up the ones for Hondas and the like that are mounted on the side of the fender near the door.

Some older 70's (especially American) cars had on the top, front of the fenders light indicators. If it had 3 the lights on each would come on depending on which light was on. The light in the middle was usually for the head lights.
