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!
