    The only other alternative is to find a "kit" or kit builder that actually makes the kit or parts right here in Canada. Very few do and quality can be an issue.
    As crazy as this sounds, a plan was conceived to drive a donor down to respectable shop/kit car builder in the U.S. leave it with them for 4-6 weeks to do as much of the body as possible that we can travel back to Canada without too many brows being raised. A place to reside during the possible 2 months spent in the States is fine and a rental can cover travel. In terms of my job, not so easy but, I could, if it came down to it b.s. some big corporate meeting in the states and drag it as long as possible. :S

    Importing the body kits with interiors is fine, a whole car and I'll have the RCMP asking about me (again, long story...). I've done import, export before and sneaking a car into the country is worlds harder then out. I really don't want to import a almost finished car, I'm looking at gathering parts and building it here, saves a lot of headaches.

    Everything is hypothetical, of course and I don't condone illegal import or export of cars or otherwise.

    Any comments or questions, I'm happy to take in the collective info available at MadMechanics.

    I don't take kindly to thieves! And by that I mean your comment about collecting insurance on your inability to finish a project! I am not looking for an argument, I just hope you were joking! When you collect on insurance deliberately you are stealing from everyone, I work very hard for my money and don't appreciate others taking advantage of things set in place to help us when it's "NEEDED"!!! I wish you the best of luck in your build and hope you don't "TORCH" a Vaydor when things go south! Once again I hope you were joking!!!

    First off everyone, not a thief. I have cut corners in life but, not at the expense of others (that I know of).

    In further detail of the comment, it was a friend's car, not mine and was entirely a joke based on the sheer level of frustration associated with the endless work needed to be done on it. Being that it wasn't mine, my heart and soul was not in it and my friend ended up selling it for parts. '95 Prelude, if anyone is wondering.

    I wouldn't trash anything especially a car, everything has a price...

    lol

    your a joke.

    you have this fantasy shop willing to work for free advertising that you plan on plastering on your precious fantasy vaydor?

    then your going to BS your way into a fantasy corporate meeting and prolong it.

    it's cool to dream every now and then. It sucks when you believe your own lies. That's an issue.

    They are all made in China. Just buy the cheapest one for a Chrysler 300. That's it. Should be 35 to 40.00 The other grills are cut from stainless sheet.

    I understand but not sure if its uses the first or second gen Chrysler 300 grill. Also I remember the grill used in this photo had a crease in the very center, just like the OEM Bentley grill. Im having trouble finding any on ebay with a crease. A link to a creased bentley style 300 grill would be really appreciated. Thanks
