I have been updating my RHD Cultus project thread for a few weeks now, but it seems that few have noticed it. (except maybe Google's search index bots).
http://www.teamswift.net/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=61318


So, to bring attention to my project in the MK2/3 1.0 & 1.3 SOHC Non-Turbo section, I thought we would play a game popularized in years past by the likes of JamalSpelling, JV&S, (Jaguars, Vettes & Sprints), and T3ragtop..

"What's in the box?"

Hint: It was supplied by a US member, and shipped from Japan for my project thread. The answer, (and rest of this week's project update) will be posted when there have been at least 2 guesses (responses).

Beeeep. Nice try Cami Man. That would have been a great purchase. But nope.

Hint # 2:
It was a part which was damaged between the time my car left port in Japan and the day my car passed its provincial government safety inspection.

Beeeep! Nice guess jv&s.. but the part is much lighter than a drive shaft, which would have been available to buy locally.

Yes I know I said there needed to be at least 2 guesses before revealing the answer. But since there have been 50+ views, I'd like to encourage guests (lurkers?) to play. Please log in and respond.

Here's the final hint before the answer is revealed in a few hours:

:study: It will be attached to the car, but not with any metal fasteners.

Thank you all for playing what's in the box! [It's amazing how many Swift parts are not attached by a metal fastener!] =)

The boxed item came from member bbowens, who is everyone's favorite rare Suzuki part seller! For those reading my RHD Cultus project thread, you may recall that I hired a local repair shop to install the North American spec. parts needed to pass provincial vehicle inspection.

When installing a center mounted stop light, the shop thought it would be okay to just cut hole(s) in an existing JDM trim panel part instead of requesting that I provide them with a North American part.

So unhappy about the bodge, I photoshopped a repair to the damaged trim panel part I was looking for (shown below) to bbowens and crossed my fingers that a new JDM part could still be had. (North American grey color part from a Metro shown at top, [digitally repaired] JDM part shown at bottom)

A few weeks later, this new part arrived:

Continued in my project thread....
