Hi mate, cheaper if you buy from U.K., mr2-Ben, see link below for clear ones. There's also a smokey set as well

https://mr2-ben.co.uk/products/13

Bring it over using YouShop & it's cheap as.

They also look much nicer than the gaudy 'diamond cut' look eBay clears.

Where did you get the spoiler from?

Been trying to source a TRD replica for a while but can't find one that isn't ridiculously priced

Hi mate, I bought the spoiler from MR2-Ben, see link below:

https://www.mr2-ben.co.uk/products/655

I had them post it to my YouShop address (UK postal cost was GBP10.00) then got YouShop (NZ Post) to bring it over to my address in Palmerston North. This cost was NZ$189.50 (delivery was 6days in total). The package arrived with no damages, no duty paid on this item either. It comes with fitting instructions, all the hardware (nuts, bolts & caps for the risers once the horizontal blade is installed and in place). It is very well made and fitted without any issues.
I am going to install a pad between the risers and the boot lid, mainly to protect the paint and stop any water collecting underneath the riser.
The guys at mr2-ben are very good to deal with, their shipping price was a bit too high hence used YouShop

Those T-top bags look to be new. What sort of $$ did it cost to get them from UK?

Hi, yeah the bags are in just about near new condition. Been after these bags for a while and there was nothing around until these popped up just recently. The bags are specific to the sides as well and are stamped accordingly in large letters :D
Paid NZ$92.00 for both the bags and another NZ$20.00 for the pair of straps.
Paid an additional NZ$54.00 for shipping (Royal Mail & Tracked)for the items bundled into one package.
Came through with the original invoice and cleared customs without any hassles or any additional payments to be made to them

Just got some more pictures from the supplier, they have to remove the auto etc. but the complete engine is sitting on the pallet getting prepped for shipment. Engine comes complete with the alternator, AC compressor, loom and ready for the transplant. Mainfreight are amazing for shipping services :D
