I know others are offering this service... my family is in Japan and I'm right behind them. We'll be bored for at least a few months so, if you want something we can bid and ship.

You pay a small fee... and need a paypal account until we figure out EFT to our Japanese bank accounts.

No oversized items... wheels are about as big as it gets, but steering wheels, cams, ecu's, eroi movies etc are all good.

Find me cheap beams itb's
I haven't even dared to search for beams parts yet, I'm afraid of the growing visa balance.

Are the dvds in JPN language?
Looking for some rear wiper arms as well.

rear wiper arms from Japan sounds extreme. DVD's are japanese.

I might be inclined to search out parts for a few rad dudes, but this isn't a service where I spend hours searching for stuff so you can see what it costs. You find it, want to buy it, I can help you. Should have made that clearer. Have questions on how to search? Shoot. Or maybe I'll put up a brief how to, with some common vocabulary.

Paul, a friend just blew up his ITB equipped BEAMS... will check what his plans are.

is it possible to get non-car related items? i.e. manga/dvds/cool gadgets....etc?

Cueman

Totally possible. I'll brush up on export regulations. Japan has some restrictions on electronics and weapons etc.

Yahoo!!! Yahoo indeed. I'm in for group wheel shipping. I need a month to catch up, but I'm excited about buying my own christmas present! I'm so happy you're doing this! I hope it doesn't turn into a schitshow for you... I hope all works out for you and the family in Japan, you have the knowledge to get something cool and lucrative going. Good luck!

Yes. Possible.

FWIW... Wheels are typically 13000円 to 20000円 shipped to western Canada for a full set. Eastern Canada/USA will sometimes be marginally more expensive than that. My fee on wheels is 1500円/wheel. All wheels are shipped with a tracking number and insurance. Werd.

Re: Group shipping. On large items like wheels nothing it to be gained. If you want to put together a collection of magazines, pencils and stuffed animals then maybe. I'm not interested in filling a container. It is too much to organize on both ends of the Pacific.

So to be clear, a full set of rims shipped to western Canada, including your fee (but not including the price of the rim... Or inland japan shipping) is about 350. That's actually a pretty good deal! I'll try to find some cool shoes asap... One question... What about rims w/tires... Out of the question?

Cueman
10-25-2011, 08:53 PM
Wheels with tires are no good. They are very close to being oversized, and often have to be shipped individually (expensive). It's been a while since I did it, but 5 or 6 years ago customs thought they had the right to slash tires because they were not DOT stamped.

You are clear on your dollar value, but missing the cost of shipping your purchase from the seller to me in Japan before fowarding on to you. Typically 3000-10000円

On wheels especially the cost can spiral out of control.
That is some pretty good shipping rates.
I'm going to guess that that would be surface rate, and 8-12 week minimum transit?
I get impatient, air mail is ~$100 per wheel for those who might be too excited to wait.

I'm sorry I started the find this for me posts, I'm not even that serious, I have so much other stuff to get this beams running at it's max potential, before I can even think of itb's.
BUT if I were to find some I might get them and just prolong the build.
Maybe.

This is a very generous offer, to take on the middle man/shipper role.

Rear Brackets

Front Brackets
http://page.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/147522334 -No Toyota Brackets Found

Looks expensive. I suppose I could visit the wreckers and look, but then you'd really be paying for my time. Are these not available in Canada at all? They are probably so available in Japan that nobody even thinks of selling them.

Having exported a lot of stuff from Japan, I've come to the realization that the service is best suited for high dollar items. I do basically the same amount of work, whether I am shipping a set of 30000Y cam gears, or a 3000Y Magazine. Fees and the shipping charges sure look a lot smaller relative to the cost of the cam gears. You've got to really want that magazine!

So I've exported stuff like pistons, cams, cam gears, timing belts, ECU's, coilovers, RCA's, camber plates, brake pads, fog lights, mirrors, steering wheels and of course wheels... and thought that it was totally worth the expense of shipping across Japan and then the Pacific. Really small items like kinkon chimes, light bulbs, shift knobs, switches and chunks of harness can often be shipped from the seller to us in Japan for free, and then forwarded onto North America for as little as 500Y.

My fee starts at 1500Y.

That one is not new. He claims it was used for about 50km. Which is weird. I'd walk away, and look for something cheaper personally.

Even if it needs a rebuild, I think you are still ahead.

In this case, if you buy a unit approaching 40000円, it will work out to around $700 all said and done.

2low, the under spoiler is usually a rear deck lid spoiler, I can't remember what car they usually get them from tho.

I had a deflector from the top of a chevy suburban under the mango for a while.
Take a walk thru a junk yard and eyeball some spoilers, much cheaper than shipping one from Japan.
