Canadian supplier for Bullnose body panels?

Rembrant
Hi Folks,

I thought it wouldn't hurt to ask around on this since it is looking like an expensive item.

I need a new radiator support for my '84 F150, and I've been checking with the local auto shops, etc and having no luck. They seem to be readily available in the US (LMC says they have a 171 of them in-stock).

They're cheap in the states...$217 shipped to your door. Shipping across the border however goes from $27 bucks to $217, and the the shipped price to me ends up being over $400 USD, which ends up being almost $600 CDN for me. Bugger.

If anybody in Canada knows of any wholesalers or retailers up here that sell them, please do let me know. I don't expect to get the USD price locally, but it's going to kill me if I have to spend $600 bucks on one of these things.

Oh, and would anybody have any idea what a Bullnose gas rad support weighs?

Isn't that interesting. I carried mine out to the shed last night, and I would have guessed at more than 30 lbs, but it is what it is. The only thing left on mine are the two headlight buckets.

One pound each?  

Seriously, I was using old old scales, and I know they aren't the most accurate down close to zero.  So, who knows.
