part numbers help... but the next question is... where in canada can we get those parts? can we ask a mitsubishi dealer to order them in? or is there somewhere else that will bring them in?

This is the first time I had heard of JDM connection, thanks for the pointer! Terra2 is actually one of the first importers I found, the problem I had with Terra 2 was that they don't seem to want to even talk to you until you hand over cash, call me old fashioned, but I like to establish a working ...
