Default Crossing the border with a wrapped long block in the back, trouble??

This has been on my mind for several days. Cord and I will be coming back to Michigan, thru Canada with a tightly wrapped 454 long block in the back of the truck. Do you guys think they will give us any hassle at either crossing? Crossing INTO Canada at Cornwall (northern NY), and back to the USA at Sarnia/Port Huron, MI. Thoughts???

Just don't pack it full of a white powdery substance and grind your teeth at the border and you'll be fine!!!

Seriously though, leave it in plan sight and you should be OK!!

Whitby, duh!! LOL!

I hope to be to past Toronto by lunch time or so... maybe we could grab a quick bite to eat somewhere off the highway? As long as I don't have to see the JCI plant in Whitby! That's where I ship all my parts from here in Michigan. Terrible customer! LOL!

Define "Documents" please. I have not been to Canada since way before 9-11 so I'm not sure what the proper way of crossing into and out of Canada is. Used to be just a drivers license was all you needed. As for the motor, should I have Audio write up a bill of sale or should I just say I picked it up from a family member for free??????
