I believe CB performance and or Mooneyes are distributors for flat four in the states.
here is their website
http://www.flat4.co.jp/

You may need to use google to translate it.

also it wouldn't hurt to check some of the sites in the UK as they also had quite a few RHD beetles.

Good Deal. Thanks! Yeah, one of the main part for the RHD is the Dash (Which is cracked in 4 different places). I've found one on a website in New Zeland for about $400 including shipping. I'm trying to find one that might be cheaper. I went on the Flat4.co.jp website but wouldn't translate all the way.

Dashes are hard to find here
There are no replacement ones available as the Supers were not very popular here. Standard beetles could be bought here right up until 2003 when they stopped production in Mexico.

We're stuck looking for used ones here as well or just covering it up.

I might have found a whole dash to purchase, instead of a cover for about $150. I'm asking about the shipping, since it's overseas.

Shipping depends a lot on location and the postal service in the country that is doing the shipping.

I sent some spindles from here to Australia and it cost $100.oo to ship them.

But I also just sent some struts to the U.S. and it only cost about $30.00

I do have access to the U.S. Postal system but it is only economical to send and recieve from the U.S. not other countries (even when they are on the same side of the world as me)

Hi

Only 1,800  1303s were ever sold in the UK.... all RHD...

and you don't see many of them in the for sales in UK magazines...

not a lot in Australia either....
they weren't liked by the VW fanatics because of the different dash....

so were mostly bought by non VW beetle people in Australia...
and weren't looked after...

You can get the dashes repaired I believe...
not knowing what a 1303 super dash really looks like...

but I've seen Karmann Ghia dashes repaired just like new....

cheers
