i'll be posting up a few more repro stickers soon:

'A-spec' - for the back of the car (yes, there is supposed to be one!)
'Lantis' - for the rear of BA Hatch and Hardtop
'B-spec' - Set of 3 stickers. Only exists for MX-5 and RX-7 as far as i know, but someone might want to be different!

Regarding people waiting on delvery:

Current container has been delayed by about a month due to the Japanese being stupid.

The reason?

An engine was bought from a wrecker. Engine number supplied to Customs in Japan. Customs go 'oh that's a stolen engine'. We go 'Well it was bought from a wrecker. Customs say 'we're investigating the wrecker, so we'll have that, so you must unpack the container and give the engine to us.

We ask 'So how do we check for a stolen engine in the future?'...to be told there is NO way of checking - until customs says so if you try to export it.

how stupid is that? no database, no nothing. No wonder half the engines in cars in japan are stolen...

And after all that? Customs give the engine back as they don't want it!

So, anyway, all that has taken weeks, and the container which was due to arrive a week and a half ago wont be arriving til the end of Feb.

Anybody waiting for stuff from Japan, container arrives 20th. Should be cleared a few days after that.

Also, exchange rate is uber-good at the moment, so buy now!

What a head fark. What was the point of the messing around and going back and forth. Mind you I would have been super pissed at the japs if that was me awaiting an engine.

Adam: yep!

Nah, it's not anything to do with Japan, it's a problem with the quarantine clearing house - they don't have any available spaces for this container until next monday.

Cheers for the service Dan. The wheels are top notch, I'm stoked! Now to put them on sometime

Everyone, I would recommend speaking to Dan should you need parts, of course he's a mate but I am completely non-biased when I say he did a good job with getting these wheels in. Would highly recommend.

'Sif not offer me a beer though biatch!
