Well I guess the first thing to do would be to find out when Tims car is shipped off and when I can take the boxes down to Top Secret.

I was hoping to let this go on for a few more days see if we can get 10 orders at least. Then I pass the order on to the company and get back to you with the prices for each and total amount. I then pass on my bank details to whoever decides to take care of things your end. Bank transfers from the UK to Japan usually take 4-5 working days. After that I pay the bonnet-damper guys and wait for the parts to turn up (they said max 2 days).

Hows that sound? :)

Thats fine by me.

How much would it be to send them by air mail?
Just incase there isn't enough time for all the money side of things to be done before Tim's car is sent.

My car left Top Secret a while ago, It's just about ready to ship so I don't think there'll be enough time, don't want the car delayed.
Better look at posting them.

Ok, no worries. Once I get mine tomorrow(hopefully) I'll go down to the PO and see how much it cost to send to the UK with EMS shipping (3-4 days to the UK). I'll have to make a rough approximation after that since 1)the carbon dampers weigh less than the aluminium ones and 2) I'll have to factor in the weight of the box where they will be placed. I should be able to come to a pretty accurate shipping cost for each.

Thats the best I can come up with.

BTW

Just found out the weight of the dampers. 1 carbon damper is 720g while the aluminum one 760g, so we are looking at the 1440g and 1520g for the set. Add a bit for packaging/box/instructions/bolts and whatever and it would add a couple of hundred grams I think.

More tomorrow:)

Sorry for the late reply Dino. I´d like the carbon for the Al bonnet, please.

Just one question: Since I´m based in Sweden, can we still make this work? It might be best if I send you the money direct, Dino and you send the dampers directly to Sweden?

Please get back to me with your thoughts on this. If it´s too much trouble, then I´ll skip it. Anway, thanks in advance!

Cheers!
/P

Simon, the "bonnet-damper guy" suggests that since you will be getting a carbon bonnet then you go for the version for carbon bonnets. The bonnet will open, just very slowly. Up to you. :)
If the dampers can hold up the AL bonnet, it's fine by me... Doesn't matter if it opens fast or slow... Just don't want the AL bonnet to drop on my head :D

So I'll have the gold version for Carbon bonnet then ;)

Would love to see that guy's business cards LOL...

Right people. I got it and its already fitted:D Took about 15 minutes to do and its really easy. Works a charm! Smooth as hell.

I took 9 pictures and made a short movie but unfortunatley my server is down so if anyone is willing to host for me we can all see it in action:)
