Default Anyone ordered from Desert Honda? Hardtop purchase

I came across Desert Honda on Ebay when I was looking for an S2000 hardtop. It's supposed to come with all necessary hardware, be available in most colours.

http://cgi.ebay.ca/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewIt...em=120131157202

They say it would cost about 4-600 to ship to Canada.

What do people think? May be keeping my care after all ( ) and this would extend its useful season.

there are at least 2 people in the toronto area selling their hardtop. I think one berlina, and one NFR. Don't know what color your car is, but it is possible to paint it...

you dealing with a huge shipping expense, and duty at the border if you buy from the usa.

just my .02

try and make it a weekend to go pick it up from him - that way you get to have the top properly adjusted on your car and you get to rack some miles on your car!

Also saves on duty when it's a mounted part of your vehicle. Nooooot that I'm encouraging customs fraud

You can be there in like 4 hours from Toronto. Could even do a there and back in a day without too much difficulty, just schedule it all with him first for a nice Saturday

Edit: Pick a rainy Saturday so you don't feel bad about driving back with the top stuck up
