thanks for helping.

There are junkyards full of samurais here in america. Just call a few that arent afraid to ship. I saw half a dozen for 75-100 bucks.
Get out the yellow pages and call a few yards, anywhere in the good ol usa, if they dont have one they can probably give you the number for someone who does.
Try Jims Auto Salvage in Sebring florida. I have used him many times and his stuff is stand up( allways excellent) 1-800-447-4707.

If you wanted to search U.S salvage yards, this: www.car-part.com is a good resource.

thanks but it would be a lot cheaper having it made over here, shipping glass is very expensive, they always want it insured.
