    I have found a set of rear fenders that I would love to have for my Whippet sedan, but the shipping from Manitoba to Texas is gonna kill the deal. What are the chances of me getting them shipped somewhere closer to him (maybe just across the border) and then shipping them on to Texas or setting up a relay ??? just wondering .......

    I am about 40 miles south of the International Peace Garden which is on the border between Manitoba and North Dakota. Maybe that would help.

  5. That's back assward. Usually the parts come from Texas to Manitoba for the good stuff.

    Yeah I know .... But so far this is the only set of fenders that I have found, and I can get them cheap enough. But .... $100.00 EACH shipping is a little much. Maybe I'm just a tight ass though .....

    Shipping from Canada is grossly expensive.,plus brokerage fees. If I sell to a US buyer I drive the 40 miles to the border and ship from there. If you could get your fenders into North Dakota and shipped from there it would be much less painful.
