You can see into the tail from the top "hatch".

You can't see into the side sections though - they'd have to cut access holes if they really wanted to. But it's cardboard. Bring duct tape and some plastic, and you fix it in 20 minutes.

Is there a passenger side mirror delete plate?
He did have the start of a blanking plate. I don't know what I did with it though. I just used duct tape.

There are also 2 motor cycle mirrors that I could throw in if I find them. I don't have the time to search the garage to guarantee I could.

They won't tear it up, you can see enough of it and if they really wanted to you could take it off for them or show them how. Plus they have tools to peek into odd areas.

nope,

and I may not be able to store it as long. My mom just gave me a roof rack off her old car that will take the spot hanging from the garage ceiling.

If shipping wasn't billions of dollars these days I would save it just to keep the MetroMPG fame going.

Ah well, can't justify $75 shipping on a $15 part.

How can you put a price on fine MetroMPG craftmanship?!

If I wasn't dealing with my overheating problem, I would pay the 75$ for shipping. I don't think it would ever pay for itself but idc. Minispeed, mind getting a quote for how much it would cost to ship it along with the grill blocks to 92307 area code? Also, how much longer are you gonna be able to hold it for?
