Hi Mikeyjohn,

I purchased from ASD Restylers in NJ. Their price was $325.00 US with shipping $27.00 US. They were great to deal with and shipped right away.

There was a shipper's brokerage fee of $50.00 cdn (try to avoid this - it's not necessary) and GST/PST of $70.00 cdn.

I figure my cost was $570.00 cdn. :eek:

I also added the Chrysler winged logo (from rear deck of a Concord/LHS) for an additional cost of $60.00 cdn.

It's a little steep for my pocket book and I agree about the brokerage fee. I got caught on that one when I got my u-connect out of the States. I will never use UPS again. We don't have PST here so only GST. Thanks for the update. ;)

Nice looking. Are those tinted tail lights?

Be careful backing out into streets and down embankments with those new tips.
I have a driveway where my tail pipes scrape the road when I back out into the street. I want to lower the car with Eibachs but I think I may end up tearing off the tail pipes backing out of my driveway.

Thanks, Joey.

Yes, the lights were spray painted by a pro to match the pearl black where they meet the body metal. We then faded the paint towards the center of the light to create a "smoked" effect. In low light, they appear almost gloss black.

The tips fit well into the existing body moulding. No problem so far with scraping.

Pipes, pipes!
I love those pipes!
Smoked tail lites also look especially good with that body color.
That about as good as it gets (? more to follow ?)

Pipes .... yeah .... don't you think 390 ft/lb of torque should have big pipes?

Always more to come - I'm working on some "eyelid" ideas for the front headlights (I can't believe I'm doing all this stuff then writing about it - the C makes me feel young again - better than Viagra!!!!) ;)
