Thanks Jay, I appreciate your concern!
I only use one criteria, there's good stuff and there's rubbish. I
don't relate that to a country.
Corvair content. Got myself some new repro door mirrors 10 years ago
from a Corvair vendor. My car is no daily driver and parked in my
garage most of the time. The chrome looks sh*t and I consider them
rubbish. I didn't go for cheap, I bought what was available at the
time. It's time that suppliers AND customers got out of this self
imposed mantra that a low price is everything. If $10 more would have
meant a better chrome finish I would gladly have paid that.
Have a great evening!
