Quick question for anyone who has connections with DHS, CBP, or lawyers in the know: Does anyone know if there would be any way to get the brand new parts I have sitting in the load space of my 110 that is locked up in VA Beach? There is a new ExMod soft top sitting in the back that I was going to replace the hard top with when I got home and picked up the truck. If somehow we were able to access those loose parts, I could even contribute my own parts to this build. They shouldn't have anything to do with the investigation, right?

Yeah, unfortunately seizures usually involve everything in the vehicle: even personal items.

Did you get a receipt or anything when your truck was confiscated Kent ?

Is there a legal way for you to inspect your property ?

Perhaps you could ask about loose items in the truck when you went to inspect your property.

So when they decide to crush it, they will crush all my new parts in the back right along with it? Even if I have receipts to prove those parts were purchased in the US after the truck was imported?

I'm about to pull some Mission: Impossible shit down in VA Beach...

A receipt from DHS for the property they stole from me? Hell no. To this day I still haven't even been shown a warrant for the initial seizure....

Until they deem the items not related to the case they will be held. Before (and if) they destroy the vehicle you will be allowed to reclaim personal property in the vehicle I would imagine. They wouldn't destroy your personal, legally purchased, goods with the vehicle

Inaccurate information will not only cause unnecessary stress to Kent, but creates a cloud of pure bullshit hoovering over the situation.

Items on a seized vehicle get released to the rightful owner as long as they are no illegal items.

Challenge me all you want, but can't change the facts.

One of the best Lawyers with intense Customs experience ( specially one that used to seat in their advisory board ) will not cost $ 25,000.00 again, lets load the bullshit zeppelin and let it fly.

The best firm with clear knowledge of Custom Laws cost $ 5,000.00 approx.

Lastly, Kent, is the one to make that decision to pursue any and all avenues as to WHOM he chooses to hold accountable for his loss, I would have lost my cookies on day one.

If we all pitch help him raise the 5,000 he could retain the aforementioned expert firm.

Kent have you been provided with a copy of the warrant used to seize your vehicle? NO ACCORDING TO YOUR POST ABOVE

I will think that should be a start

I'm not convinced there is anything they WOULDN'T do. But if they allowed me to collect my "legally purchased goods" from the vehicle, then on top of the parts in the back, there are several thousands of dollars worth of legally purchased bolt-on parts that I installed right before it was seized that I should be able to retrieve, right?. ie. Rock sliders, brand new Corbeau seats that I've never even sat in, etc.

If you can set this up and Kent is on board with it I would donate some money towards the effort.
Can you name the name the firm we would be hiring for him ? Even if we look towards another vehicle for Kent something along the lines of what you describe seems pertinent.

Ugh, I don't know, that's really tough. I suppose if you provided some before and after shots to prove the items were not on the vehicle at the time of import that would aid in your cause. Reciepts and paper trials help. You will most likely need an attorney to recoup those items, since we are throwing out the $5k for a decent firm you need to ask yourself if the parts and bolt on bits exceed that number. And maybe take your chances that whomever lets you retrieve your goods has some sort of heart after years of irate people coming in to collect their property from CBP.

Ex MOD

What do you think about this truck Kent ? The one from Sandwich motors that BuyRovers mentioned ? He also has a "Special" forces recon in RHD. With a Tithonus on the way. I could fetch it and cross country RURR it to Mephis or so if the board makes an effort to purchase it for you.

I did not check the price. BuyRovers quoted a price. They did not list it on the site.

Imagine we would have to call. If he is interested in that D110 I imagine some haggling should be done and give Sandwich Rovers some exposure for helping Kent out.

If this is the RHD one for 7K I have an extra hard top with ribbed roof around. I can throw it in with the deal. Summer is coming up and an open top might be nice for him. This is the "Special" forces recon unit I think.

Hey a@@hole, shut the fuck up

Unlike your doing, I do have proof

You on the other hand all you have is unfounded talk

Btw, I will tell you this in your face as well with no reservation

I'll get in touch with them today then.

Lets see if we can make this happen.

Hopefully you did not leave your tools in the D110. You will need them with a British military "recon" unit

Pendy,

I did share the name of the firm with Kent

If he is on board with them ( free consultation ), we can put the donation fund together no worries
