Hi Friends...
I'm back in Vancouver (in quarantine for another 12 days so can't get to any parts stores locally).
I am wondering if anyone knows of some good online eshops for parts within Canada.... the problem with ordering from the US is that shipping costs are massive. $60 shipping for a $3 part!!

I am looking to find something like these...

https://www.pegasusautoracing.com/productdetails.asp?RecID=1342

Thanks!
Ed

You can get these at your local Canuck tire, they'll ship for $5 (when I check)

Rockauto is pretty wicked. Just may not have the more unique vanagon parts.

Have you found Dr. Bjorn's Auto in Ontario? https://www.drbjornsauto.com/
I personally have not used them, but just know of them.

Concept 1 in Calgary has tons of VW and vanagon parts in stock. Keep your $ in Canada (even after the pandemic is over)!

Barry at http://www.werke1.com is a GoWesty and maybe VanCafe reseller. He is in Richmond, BC so local to you.

EDIT: correct url, thanks WiboBusMan

Wellington - you are 100% correct! I don't know why I assumed they were in the east, and I have been in contact with them several times via email.
