Why do they have to be made overseas? Im sure there is a stateside source, I wonder if they require as many units or the cost is just so much more?FYI-I worked for a Chevrolet Truck restoration company (www.sokyclassics.com) for off and on ten years. During this time, we started making a few parts that were never before available in Taiwan. We even shipped a complete Truck overseas once. We became the ONLY source for several different parts. I have thought about having a few parts made overseas but I just dont know if the demand would be there or not. Of course you have to order a crap load of something before they will make it. Say if you made the arm rests, then they would want around 300 or so per side to be pre-ordered before they would even make them.
Things I've considered:
-Wheel Opening Moldings (Impala)
-Armrest pads (Dyeable)
Can't do anything with GM logos on it.
I HATE every time I put a foriegn part on my american car. I almost have a list of the foriegn parts in my head so that I may replace them with american ones when they wear out or I find an american made version.
