If you call the order in we can ship to Canada via USPS. If you want to place the order on the web Bongo is the only way it will work for you on our site.

OK, just so you understand how a modern person buys things via mailorder.... You check multiple sources for the lowest combined cost including shipping. Unless it is a big order, phoning multiple places multiple times is not worth it. Having a decent website that provides all the information quickly and easier will get you more business.

Hi TeriAnn, thanks for your note. Yes, my guess is you nailed it. AdBlock is probably choking on our CDN (not our data).

This is actually the first time I have become aware of AdBlocker choking on CDN's if that is in fact the problem...seems to be a massive drawback on their behalf as most of the web is going in this direction for its scalability, etc. (we obviously do not have popup ads)

We will look into alternatives, in the mean time, please add an exception for your AdBlock plugin to view the site.

Enjoy your travels,

Graham

Bongo our online partner does do just that, in fact it even calculates all of your taxes and duty, so you know up front what the entire cost will be to your door.

But in the end, I'm in sales I would rather you call me so I can keep my job

Cheers
Eric

That was the result when I clicked on a link to a parts. So there are some bad links within the site.

I scored on some AB's black friday free shipping sale. All I need now is a new chassis.

I only got 5k from the guys insurance. My insurance takes care of the rest. Nobody around here wants to work on it due to them being scared it'll be a clusterfuck of a job so I decided to do the rebiuld at my house. Plus I have new engine and suspension parts I wanted to install anyway. Since I have a new gf now I'm going to try to teach her to hand me the right spanners and socket wrenches and to learn about patience.. Meanwhile I'm still going to my dr for my back.

Did you get a new bulkhead? What engine are you dropping in?

My body guy said the bulkhead is for the most part fine, there is some pushing and pulling underneath the air vents but he said he has dies and a frame puller that can straighten that out. The cage and the bulkhead cage mounts are fine as well. I already bought all new fenders/outer skins along with a new radiator grill mount. A lot of parts are NLA for 94 NAS so I'll have to straighten a couple of parts out by hand in the front end. Basically once the chassis comes, I'll just slowly start dissasembling everything starting from the axles and start moving everything over. I'm putting a brand new 4.6 crate with rebiult heads. Once everything starts getting together, i will have the body guy paint all the panels seperately with 3 coats ECR style.

I wish you guys success but have no idea how you will keep BP's Series customers without a usable web site. I hope there are web site plans in the works.
This is not working out for me either. At least BP's website would allow you to look for ROW 110 parts. I ordered front end, suspension, and engine parts for my 2.5 petrol. Looks like I will be going with Rovahfarm and SHP more.
