I had some things I did in addition to your video that I thought might be useful to share with a larger audience, who may not read what I've posted in my build thread.

I hope you're OK with me copy and pasting the below from my build thread here for others to see. Maybe it will help them.

Also, @mtbtim and @JZiggy if either of you need a new bumper or two for your personal vehicles let me know and I will drop a couple in the mail for you, free of charge since you did the legwork on figuring this rebuild/mod out. I have extras from the junkyard since I didn't need to use any for experimenting. Let me know if you want any!
Hey @Unner this is great info! The bumpers do indeed wear out and the repair kit doesn't address the problem. I think you have a creative solution to it.

Just this past weekend I had to replace the bumpers on my 1st gen but it's easier because the stopper rod isn't permanently connected to the hinge so a new one can just slide on.



I'd be happy to take you up on the offer for some harvested bumpers -- I do need one for my 99 driver's side! Please keep me in mind as well if you find decent cores at the junkyard as I find myself rebuilding these for forum members and friends on occasion.

Interesting that they are easily replaceable on the 1st gens. Also interesting that they used the same part for so long. Must be 30+ years they've been making that little bumper.

I'll send you a PM later this week to work out logistics!

@Unner , thanks for confirming that the rubber bumpers from the 1997-2011 Camry's door checks are compatible with 3rd gens. Opens up parts availability big time.

It sure does. There were probably 20 Camrys at the junkyard and no 4Runners as usual. If only we could pull parts off American cars! That would be too easy.
