Re: G-Nose headlight covers

You could get a set here for the desired bid amount of 47,250 Yen. 1USD currently equals 120Yen.
http://page11.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/n54896436

So the price would be $393.75 plus whatever shipping from Japan. Also since they do not ship internationally you would have to pay comision fee's to a bidding service like www.Rinkya.com

Still better than the $1,000.00 on ebay.

Re: G-Nose headlight covers

I would not mind getting something like this if the quality was decent.

A few years ago I bought a 2 piece setup from Showcars body parts. It is now cut up in pieces as I try to build my own setup.

Maybe I should get the factory headlight covers and start shaping from them versus the showcars pieces.

Was that because they passed you all the time?....

Re: G-Nose headlight covers

The parts are nice enough but there size restrictions and when you get large parts that gets very expensive. Shipping from DHL states near $1000 usd to ship a bumper. They base it on volumetric shipping rather than actual weight.

The headlight covers are a viable option. Gnoses are $$$ to send unless you know someone in the military being restationed back to the US or you get in on a container being shipped.

Yeah, shipping via DHL, EMS and the like would be expensive. The problem I would have is the communication in Japan to arrange a shipment. The shipping process is not to complicated. It would be worth it to buy 4 units for shipping.
The link below is the process I went through to ship a pallet from Hong Kong. It was an interesting process.
