Those Camry manifolds are hard to get from the 1997-2002 model. Same goes for the fog lights off of a Celica. Most are wrecked in the front.

PASSENGER FENDER!!! God, I've been looking for one all over and everyone I've found is either A. more than I want to spend or B. damaged.

Toyota symbol from the hood if you can get it off
Shift boot if it's in decent condition
Clip that holds center console/armrest closed

Umm, think that's it...

Thanks if you can get the stuff, and if not, thanks anyways for trying. :D

there is one of those also. Im not sure how your gonna get this stuff, shipping on it would be kinda insane. Probley offsetting the cost of a new one. You could drive down here and pick it up. But theyll be there for 4 months soooooo, ill snap some pics. and try to get my hands on the smaller things.

The fender shouldn't be too bad I don't think. It's not overly big or overly heavy. Let me know.

Wrong, sadly. If you don't want the fender mangled in transit, you're probably looking at 70-100 to ship it. You can ship it much cheaper if all you do is put it in a cardboard box that it barely fits into (still probably about 30-40) but odds of it being crunched would be high.

I ship this kind of thing every day, costs can be suprising.

That is ghey...is it the size that bumps the price up so much?

Ok what would be shipping to 28716 for just the fender.

but pics would be nice when you get them ill let you know.

only about 7-8 hours away from you

Still want these parts if there in white lemmie know, maybe you can get the junkyard to ship them they might have experince doing so.

And i work at FedEx and we get bumpers and stuff shipped ALL the time, if its just a bendable bumper cover like the rear 5th gen i would just put it in some bubble wrap and ship it.

If its a fender or something that cannot bend period, i would put it in a sturdy box. Big boxes get crushed easier if they are empty, i would just get an extreamly tough box. We usualy get fenders and stuff shipped inside form fitting boxes but the boxes are extreamly thick compared to other boxes. So i would suggest getting a thick box or maybe double boxing.

Marking glass all over it will help also, i would also write this end up, and for the kicker make up a temapture you want it stored at. If you do all this you are more likely to recive the item un-damaged.

Also do not use DHL, they throw there stuff in giant piles LITERALY. UPS usualy loses the item some times damages it. USPS is good, or if you got the money FedEx but they are more expensive then most. I have never seen a damaged car part come thru fedex before, and we get everything from CV axels to body kits.
