G'day everyone,.....


"One day at a time" you are a LOT closer than you used to be!! fat lady sings

I may be closer but my bank balance is certainly a lot emptier!
:(


But to counter balance that I have a NOS whistler turbo I can get next month.
:)


This emotional roller coaster is making me sea sick!

No, you are not alone! And you should be happy that everything cleared US-Customs, at least. Believe me, that could end being the real nightmare...! Murphy is omnipresent, indeed!

My English...
I would have written better "two years ago"
No, no, no; your English is all good, and very good in fact. And it's a WHOLE lot better than my German I'll tell you that right now.

I just look for fun where it's available, and your comment gave me an opening. I was only kidding. So please forgive my rudeness. :beer:

Well it looks like my Spares/accessories just need to clear (AQIS) quarantine now so I am hoping very early next week I can collect it.
Its a few mins off Friday as I type this.
Hoping I get notification tomorrow, (Friday) then I can take a day off work and go get it.

If all go's as I am thinking then 4 days later the main attraction should arrive at the dock.

Fingers crossed,....

Last night I got the Invoices for my parts AND the Deuce for the shipping and customs clearance etc,...

I am gonna go pay that today on my way into work and take tomorrow off work to go collect.
As far as I understand the parts/accesories are ready to collect but the Deuce I am not sure about as the last info I had is the Ship docks TODAY.
Unless it was early,...??

I guess I will find out a little later,...

Let the fun begin!

Ok,...

Payed the invoices, bank account screaming in horror!!

STILL waiting for shipment to be released by AQIS,....
:(


Aussie.
Well,
She's there. Parts are there. Enjoyment is that much closer. Bank account "horror"??? I had assumed you knew what the totals would be, when she arrived and came due. Did they change? Or is that just a restatement of the large amount? So glad you're about to be united with your truck and parts!

Your transaction is a help to the overall economy; it's called the "velocity" of money.

Well I need money fast!
I now own a Deuce.
;)

Oh yeah I knew what it would be as I got quotes first!
Even given a slight variance for the fluctuating exchange rate etc.
Came in very close to the quote.

Its just taking it out in a lump sum and paying everything at once, I am always putting funds IN, this was funds going in the wrong direction,...

Its a shock to the system.
:shock:


And this seems to be dragging out,...
I hope though it drags one more day, then I can take Friday off to go collect and make it a long weekend!
