    Importing anything from the states will add near 20% to it by import duty and vat.

    Im looking at making a rear diffuser, engine cover, battery cover, fuse box cover and slam panel cover. Also possibly a front splitter cover.

    Definately interested in the engine bay parts Maverick

    I've got a friend that can do small bits for me, like the interior

    I was thinking of the plastic bit on the door cards and possibly some custom made heater vent rings

    anything over the value of £28, gift or not, is liable for customs charge

    Well having had a closer look today, ill be looking at making a replacement cover for the engine, going to try and retain the silver insert but it will only fit those with aftermarket induction systems, as for the battery and fuse box thisll prob be have to be done by covers over the oe to maintain the clips. The slam panel cover should be able to be done as a replacement but need to obtain one to have a closer look.
