    300? You should ask if someone over there is willing to buy and ship it for you. This badge should fit in a normal envelope, right?

    Did some shipping for one of the guys over there, too.

    I don't like the 3B but I admire the love that you put in your car!

    Er gefällt mir persönlich nicht so gut, aber ich bewundere Deine Arbeit!

    Captain,

    Me no likey either, that big expanded metal look just doesn't do it justice. Can you find some of that mesh that you have on either side where your fogs went in? I think that would work much better and not contrast. Or just yank out the center mesh and put in a FMIC.

    I realize this. I did not choose the right words. I just received the hatch struts from ECS, but they don't sell the hood strut polished.

    Actually, I have been using a hatch strut for the hood as it is shorter. At shows it opens the hood just far enough to see all of the painted goodies.

    Money isn't the problem since there's paypal. But if you can't find anyone to help you and you hold your car long enough, I'm planing a trip to the US - but that's not for sure.

    Falls die Reise klappt, meld ich mich nochmal.

    Es hatte sich schon jemand bereit erklärt, aber wenn es so hinhauen würde, wäre diese Lösung die favorisierte.Aber bloß keinen abbrechen.Wenn nicht, dann nicht.
