WTB - Aluminess bumper Pin lock set and 2 hook Door Talon

I have an older aluminess bumper and I'd like to retrofit their bumper pin lock set to it (see here: http://www.sportsmobilestore.com/alumin ... pin-locks/ ) except Sportsmobile won't ship to Canada.

Is there anyone stateside that can buy it for me and USPS ship it up to me?

Also looking for the elusive 2-Hook style Door Talon...

Thanks
Mark

Mark, can't you directly deal with Aluminess for the bumper pin lock?

No suggestions on the Door Talon.

I'd send Jwinterstellar a message on the two hook door talon. When I order the regular talon
from him two months ago, he still had the two hook talon. He may be all out now but I give him
a try via pm.

Edited= wrong vendor name

They will be my next attempt... I was hoping to find a US person willing to ship parts up here though because my shopping list may grow a bit if I find someone whos willing to help me out

Been eyeing up a swivel base for the passenger seat in my van but when I went to check out with my shopping cart, discountvantruck quoted me $200 in shipping via UPS... I KNOW for a fact that it can be done WAY cheaper via USPS because I frequent a lot of motorcycle boards and I recently purchased a complete rear wheel and had it shipped to me for $80 from Florida...


UPS is such a joke here too... I once bought a part for my chainsaw off Ebay for $12 and it was $20 to ship... That's not a big deal considering I couldn't buy it locally at all so I ate that cost and got it anyways. But I had to pay another $85 when it hit my doorstep! Needless to say I didn't pay and sent them on their way but I still had to eat the original $20 shipping cost as the retailer would only refund me for the part. Oh well... Live and learn. And I've learned not to deal with UPS.

NEVER use UPS to ship across the border - they're brokerage fees are a scam.

I am fortunate to be close enough to the border to be able to use a mail service in Washington state. Not sure where you are located - Alberta if I recall correctly, so that may not be an option if you're in Calgary or Edmonton. (BTW, it's a friend's PO Box we use, otherwise I'd offer my services. Sorry.)

Cheers,
Brent

1der said he could/would do a groupbuy for swivel bases if there was enough interest. pm him and let him know your interested. i think hes putting together a list.

viewtopic.php?f=7&t=16772

sounds like we need 8-10 folks interested to get a decent deal.

oh and i i bought one of the 2-hook talons. absolutely love it! if he still has one, nab it quick.
