Thought the below might be helpful.

I have been buying parts for my HJ47 for the last 10 yrs or so from Aus.   More recently the Aus $ has appreciated strongly against and got another kick up post June 23rd.  Also Customs have got much slicker at picking up imported goods for duty/vat payments.  Upshot is purchase price including postage (often equals price of parts) can double again once Customs spots your parcel.

Having corrosion in one rear light causing loss of indicators I had a look on e bay.  A site in Thailand, iyaikub, list a pair of rear light clusters complete with backing plate and a mounting frame (if required) for 28.  Postage 29.  Total of 57 which I think is pretty fair.  Roughly half Aus prices.

Parcel has just arrived, 7 days after order, and goods are as described and look to be good quality.  I've waited a lot longer for parts sourced from UK.
Final bonus is whole parcel is marked as having a value of $18 US.  No import charge!!

Hope it's helpful.
