I recently ordered a carpet and boot set from AH Spares in GB. The stuff
was fairly bulky as can be imagined. Shipping (or carriage, as they called
it) was £62 (~$100) and Customs/Customs Processing fee was $11.84. These
parts were cheaper from the UK, but the shipping put them over what it
would cost me in the States. I could not find a boot kit to my liking in
the States however, so it was worth it to me.
