Pete, I did a search for Bilstiens in Charlotte, but can't find them unless you have them shipped to your home. If your visiting family maybe you could order them, and have them sent there. It's odd that in a city as big as Charlotte I couldn't find a sop that stocks them. Sorry I couldn't be of anymore help. But I got you to the top, and maybe someone else can chime in with help.


I found them at www.autozone.com, but they would have to be shipped also.


There is a good accessories shop on Tryon St. (Hwy. 29) on the east side of Charlotte called AutoToyz. I dealt with them buying Katzkin leather, and they were very helpful. They carry things like bull bars, bed covers, and many other things to dress your baby up. Have a safe trip.

You are welcome sir. My ancestors come over from Scotland in the 1700's.
