I am back!!! And I had a ******* blast, can't wait to go again...

So, hold of on the money till tomorrow, these are beefier than I thought, they are actually really thick (good thing) and appear to be of very good quality. I don't think they will fit in a flat rate box so I will figure out what to do about shipping tomorrow on my lunch break. I have to run, but I will put a list together tonight and PM everyone in the first batch with more details about the transaction.

Spike, no photos, the ex took the caera with her, but Jedduh is a local and once he picks his up any day now, maybe he can take some good pics for you guys.
There is a picture of the actual product on page one but I know you want more detailed pics. There is also a pic of y8s set up, and these look very much the same as his to get you a good idea.

Having these in my hand I am confident to say that these will fit anything from a baby turbo (ya'll know who you are) to a GT35 easily...lots of adjustment there for a good fit.

Important Update

Ok, I have my list ready, it is nearly identical to the list on page one.

I am sending PM's to all on the list momentarily (well already started)

If you are combining shipping with someone and I do not say anything about it in my PM to you, let me know via PM, do not post here as I may miss it.

Let's try to make this really smooth with no issues as I can't afford to eat any more money, so let's not **** anything up and ship these only once.


Again to clarify, TB are $75(+3%) so appx $78. Shipping will vary I assume, depending where you live and how many I am shipping to you.
At noon, I will find out what it will cost to package each of these and to ship them and I will let everyone know.
I want to insure each package and get delivery confirmation to cover my ***, cause if your **** gets gone at the post office, I am not sending you another one.

I am assuming no more than $5 total for shipping etc. but we don't know for sure until I go to the PO.
So please bare with me.


*These will not fit in envelopes, they are way to thick, yes I did try but no go. I will have to box them, but no big deal.

Final update for batch one!

All that recieved a PM can paypal me now as I am ready to finalize batch one.

Pricing Structure:

$78 for blanket
$2.15 for insurance*
$0.65 for delivery conformation*
$1.00 for packaging (sorry guys, I have to buy almost 50 boxes so I have to charge you)
$5.00 shipping if you live east of the Mississippi
$8.00 shipping if you live west of the Mississippi

My Paypal is miatajebac at yahoo dot com
Make sure to let me know what you are paying for in your paypal message window. Be specific.


* optional


If for some reason you can't pay until 2-3 weeks for now, let me know so I can give someone else your spot on batch one. I have a feeling there will be a few of those. Please pay promptly so I can get to batch 2 quicker.

Many thanks,

Dan

You're making me add now too, I hate math.

I dont mind the dollar for boxes, but did you know USPS provides the large 12x12x5.5 inch priority flat rate boxes for free. They are 10 bucks shipped flat anywhere in the US.

and did you know that if you buy the shipping labels through paypal, delivery confirmation is free?

Again, not complaining 85 w/o insurance is perfect, just want to give you a heads up of where to make it easier on yourself. Buying boxes is a bitch if USPS will send them to your house for free. Printing flat rate labels from paypal is easy as hell instead of using the machine at the post office.

This I will look into, possible the easiest solution.

Thanks

Relax Rafa, no extra expenses for local pick up...Phil picked yours up from me at the Gap and will hand it over to Tony, who will ship it to you once he is done with his situation.

Yes but you paid for the boxes even if mine didn't need one.
