its so hard finding good halfs for a fair price. theres just some ppl that think they have a case half made out of gold and want 200+ for a used piece of aluminum.. i found one cheap eventually. good luck.
It took me 10 months to find a good right side for my 04. And got that one for $60.00 on ebay. I needed a left also, ended up biting the bullet on that one. Dave Hung had a new in box $175.00.
I know it's frustrating, hang in there Stewart!
