About 3.5 years ago I priced a hatch here in Oz. at $Aus1500
The exchange rate then was about 50 cents, so that would have been about $US750
I then bought a used hatch from Japan, no rust at all, it had supposedly been sitting in a warehouse for quite some years.
(Same story they tell about Jap engines)
Do they really (in Japan) have enough land to keep huge warehouses full of used parts for years?
The 85' hatch I got for $200 wasn't exactly rust free, but the problem's just STARTING (small repairable rust bubbles around the latch, that I'm going to attend to this month)...Also it had been repainted white at one time, had dark purple tinted glass, with a trd sticker in the window.
Yeah I wanted a new hatch, and Toyota said 1100, without the glass. So I went to Pick your Part and found the only MKII in the yard, the only usable thing it had left was the hatch, so I popped it off, and now its on my car, almost completely rust free, except one little spot. Almost the same color as my car as well, slightly darker blue though.
since Jim can't post a POLL I'm posting this on his behalf...he will be running this group buy. Any and all questions (with the exception of Canadian Shipping) will go through him and here is the text he gave me:
IMPORTANT: Pricing has not been confirmed for condensers. It all depends...
The rear glass seal found here is set to start very shortly so it's time to move onto the next project. When we sent out the hatch glass seal we also sent out a pair of window seals...for those that need visual queues here is what I'm talking about:
I'd like to see how much interest this is...
So as some of you are aware I'm no longer "stocking" Dobinsons; meaning I will not be purchasing them by the skidload as I did in the past. The interest is just not there to justify the expense, so what I will be doing as coming on here and posting up a "Group Buy" every 6 months. Group Buy is...
