ok, first of all, u have to find a US address to mail to. If u need one, pm me. Usually, u need to pay 2-3 USD to the house owner. After u got ur package, I suggest u to install them first, b4 u go back to Van. You can save alot of tax if u do so. The only problem is the side skirts because they r not add on. So u can just bring the sideskirt back to Van, and create a fake reciept or sumthing to pay less for tax. Or u can take off the side bumpers u have now on ur TSX and go to the state and put the whole kit on. That's the best way, i believe. Hope this helps.

Anyone want to volunteer to install the kit for me & thenation in Point Roberts? lol...

Would we need to jack the car up to install the front and rear skirts? What tools etc. would we need?

no jacking needed.
L-shaped screw drivers are definitely helpful !

What head? Philips? Robertson? The flat head ones?

I don't even know if I can find someone with L-shaped ones.

You need a lot of Luck to pass those Damn Canadian Customs.

so Where do you think you can install the OEM by yourself in the US?
in a Parking lot? :laugh:

if u install the whole kit in the state, then i think custom shouldn't be a problem. just go to an outlet mall parking lot to do it.

Yes, they do take pic of every car, but i believe that the main purpose is to record the license plate.

Yup. I think the camera takes a picture of the licence plate, and the computer reads it and pulls up your record. I cross the Ambassador bridge EVERY weekdays.

I thought about buying and installing the body kit in the US and come back without them knowing but I don't want to take the chance of getting caught.

just dress up as golfers..throw some clubs in the back and tell customs you're gonna play golf..that gives you 4 hours to install, which is PLENTY of time..
