Thanks for the update, Sam.

Their website looks fully operational. I wouldn't of known if you didn't say something.

Do you have any other recommendations for a similar product that you can order over the net and do yourself?

that site says,

"thank you for your loyal support over the years. we just could not hold on long enough to get thru this rough stretch of road. We are out of business effective 11/04/2009. someone will purchase some of the molds and continue to produce a few of the many products that we use to make. Who that is and when they will be available is unknown even to us at this time.
Even when you know your in the same boat as many others (without a paddle, a rudder, a sail or a bucket) it still is not any easier."


anyhow, as mentioned above, 'some' of their products are still available thru MF and CH until stock runs out.

Thanks again Sam.

Does anyone know of a supplier that has free shipping to ontario canada. Horton Hotrods in milton offer a service to get things into Caada but it would be nice to get some of the stuff direct.

Order parts from a dealer that will be at a show like Carlisle or Hershey and pick it up from them there...

I try to order large parts at the swap meets. You can request the shipping to be waved. Dennis Carpenter did this for me last time I placed an order from there tent at Carlisle Pa...Won't hurt to ask....

F100 Parts to Canada

And if you think that is bad wait until you try and ship into Canada, especially with UPS, and their ridiculous brokerage fees on items that don’t even have duty.

USPS (mail) is the best but many suppliers will not ship with them.(?)

Umm, I had to look in you profile to see where you are from, it would help us to answer if you put it in the location code in “user cp”.
I am just about to order a bunch of parts for my 56 f100. I was thinking of ordering through midfifty, will they ship USPS to Canada? I have been taken to the cleaners by UPS more than once. I hate shipping to Canada with them.
