Is the door glass flat? If you could somehow make a pattern, you can probably get it cut over there. I know they are harder to find now, but there are glass places here who will cut flat glass.

I have shipped items all over the world and it never ceases to amaze me how different each one will be. I can ship some two pound item to Japan for five bucks and then the same item to Canada may be 15! I couldn't begin to guess. But you could figure it out yourself. Go to usps.com and figure it out. Get a window and weigh it. Then figure out the box needed to safely ship it, put in the size of that box and the weight, adding a number of pounds for the box and you will find out the cost.

You could try UPS, FEDEX and the others. But I have found that the USPS is the ABSOLUTE cheapest hands down for over seas shipping.

Yeah unfortunatly its curved glass so cant get it cut.

Ill have a look at those websites and try and gauge it myself. I emailed a guy on ebay selling a pair and he has quoted $184 which is much better.

I think they have a weight limit on what they will ship.
If not try regular air freight, I have had tires, transmission, short block, seats all sent that way and not too expensive.
Wish I could give you prices but I never kept the shipping bills.
