Default Anyone want to split shipping on stuff from Japan?

I'm thinking about getting a set of those OEM fog lights from Mot. http://forum.ih8mud.com/showthread.p...7&page=1&pp=30 He sells tons of other stuff that you can't get over here, as I'm sure most of you forum-savy types already know. Only catch is shipping is expensive, he quoted $30 for the slow boat, $60 air. Anyone want to go in on an order? Let me know..

Lots.. in fact I've heard from several folks that there's no cost savings in doing that, compared to just buying from MAF or SOR or someone.. I'm not talking a container here, just a box with some little stuff in it, that will likely be $60-$80 shipping cost for air, which takes up to 2 weeks. But if you wanted clear tail lights, 80 series dash grab handles, rear recliner hinges, rear AC stuff...

O-k,

How bad would it be for some 70 series front turn signals?

Probably not worth it when you can get them here reasonable. Anything from japan usually it's isn't worth it if you can get it here due to shipping.

I'd love to get some bling for my 80. Just can't spend the money right now.

Thanks anyway Wes!

It all just means 70 signals should stay on a 70

FWIW I think new OEM toyota ~75 ea.

Stuff like tim mentions is worth it 80 recliners, etc.
