Thanks for reminding me :shifty: I have to purchase shipping boxes for these :oops:

Any idea where you're grabbing them from? I need to do much the same for the Lindbergh ones.

I was thinking rajapack. They're not cheap, but fairly sturdy. Used them for the illumination panels last year:

https://www.rajapack.co.uk/cardboard-bo ... 11580.html

Approximately £55 for 10, after shipping (80x25x25cm)

These have landed in the UK. However, they're at the mercy of Corbie now :palm:

I've sent them the documentation, so let's see how long he'll want to stretch this out.

1 week with customs. Anyone want to place bets on when they'll get released?

I hate parcelforce :palm:

Both! They've cleared today. Just need to wait for the huge customs bill :oops:

I think everyone should receive their panels by Tuesday. I have already assembled the boxes and there is 100m of bubble wrap waiting.

Good news: They're here!

Bad news: Approximately £12 higher because of the excise duty unfortunately. Sorry :(

Cost Breakdown:

Cost per panel (shipped from Japan) - £206.50

Customs charge / Duty / Clearance fee per panel - (£866/16) - £54

Total £260 each.

Everyone has paid £200 already, so it will be £60 (per panel) + shipping cost

Image

Veuch - 5x£60 = £300 + £40 post (£340 total) PAID
Ikaru - 1x£60 = £60 + £27 post (£87 total) PAID
kevin2me- 1x£60 = £60 + £27 post (£87 total) PAID
Monstermug - 1x£60 = £60 + £17 post (£77 total) PAID
Superpang- 1x£60 = £60 + £17 post - minus £7 owed(£70 total) PAID
Wigsplitta- 1x£60 = £60 + £17 post (£77 total) PAID
g60hot - 5x£60 = £300 + £30 post - minus £95 owed (£235 total) PAID
