try to find some one in your area that will do it, because it will cost more to ship the part than it would to make it.

The customs paperwork isn't worth the effort.
I would hook you up if I didn't have to deal with that. Sorry but he's right.

If cost is no object, you can get most any part made here:

The per-part cost is high for one unit but goes down rapidly with volume.

what? customs paperwork. maybe if you go through a broker.
I deal with 40 inch boat hulls that go to the states. all i do is send it with a signature. then it goes to the persons post office and that is that. "paper work" hardly a signature and address is all you need.
maybe you send you stuff the hard way.
I just got two items shipped to me . and there was no hassle.


any how no more and i looking i did it my self
