Default Canadians Needing Parts

Ok.. Boost is making a trip to Canada.. so far..for some friends I have

About 11 lbs of 134a freon, a couple cans of sealant
A 92 pcm
A power antenna...(wait til you see how I'm smuggling that up)
2 air filters
A pulley puller (Eh Captain?)

Is there other stuff you guys need since I'll be crossing the border and it'* probably cheaper to mail from inside the MooseLand?

Is there anything I should bring as a backup so I don't get stuck in the snowbank? I've got good tires and the fluids are changed and topped off....

Several, yes, but I don't expect you to make a trip to the yard before Friday.

A pulley puller would be just marvelous.

I've had to move that 3.4" out of the way so I could stop thinking about it.

Place a candy bar in the trunk and that'* all they'll see.

..or...

tell 'em you need all those parts to get your crap-wagon back across the border. That will explain why they're not there when you come back. Then you can tell 'em you chucked the broken parts in the lake. :P

You could alway say "I DID not know that was there..."

If all else fails, kick them in the "nutssack" and run
