I know it will not be easy to find the 99.9% rust-free shell... I would only prefer MK3 (92-94) or mk5 (98-01).... not mk2 or mk4.... must be standard due to transaxle mount)... and of course, black or white would be nice.

Reason:

My GAT (Modified MK3 Turbo3) shell has some rust holes... of course I bet it's over 400k km... so I am not happy to look at it and I am not too sure if i am happy to do bodywork jobs.... I also have some GTi parts so I need to put everything into MK5.

I might have something for you, but I'm not sure how you would get it from me to you. I'm located in Atlanta, GA.

Is it clean title?

Must be clean title... Import any non-clean title would be difficult and expensive due to different laws between BC and statse.

I have a 94 geo metro, factory black paint, but it has a automatic, so the mounts would need to be fabbed up. it also has some front-end damage, but still a clean title.

I am about 14 hours away from the coast.
this one is just sitting. don't know if I will fix it or strip it. the black paint makes it a little more rare.
