I'm down in Manzanillo on the coastal road (200), SW of Guadalajara. If you're coming this way I'd be happy to receive whatever parts you need. Just be sure whoever sends them includes all the right customs documents or your shipment will be 'lost' forever. Also, be aware that you'll get billed at least 16% tax on whatever you import and no matter what anyone tells you up front, it'll take at least a week to get here from the US (even if they're overnighted). You're best off using either UPS or DHL. Fedex has horrible service in Mexico outside of all but the largest cities. If you guys are rolling through town I'm happy to offer work space and tools or even some basic (but free) accommodations. Happy trails.
