Tell me about it, they're just shooting themselves in the foot by losing custom.

Feel free to post them to my place, i can forward them on to the US (you'll have to pay VAT though as it's not a direct export from the UK), but the option is there if a supplier won't send direct to you.

It's no bother to me, you just pay the shipping, thats all. (oh, and a beer when i'm next stateside and if we meet! )

George, no problem, probably better to remove the whole skin (plus you get to paint the backside of all the channel), but not necessary just to do the bottom part. The best work I have seen is the series guys (and a couple D90 guys) who have all the steel parts galvanized after repair and then reskin them. Land Rover series Is had galvanized door channel and they are still good after 50+ years.
