Ok so the thread about shipping US parts out of the country has got me thinking. I have been saving every last cent I have come across to build my Nailhead but have had a two issues. First one is finding a good stock set of 401 heads in th NY region of the Us. Then there is the big issue. Getting them here to Australia. So up until now the largest and heaviest thing I have shipped from the US was a NOS Scheifer alloy Fly Wheel, that went pretty good all thanks to a great HAMBer (Little Wing, you ROCK!)! A set of heads is another story though, the work alone on these is going to be killer and are going to cost me more than a complete running freshly built 401, thats why I'm so worried!! I have no idea haw to get them to me with a minimum possibility of damage or loss. These will basically be finished bolt on items And as some of you know I have lost a large sum of money to Moon on parts and shipping that have never arrived so, yeah I'm a pussy and am scared of that happening again! Now our postal system is pretty easy compared to yous sooo........ Can anyone give me advice on how I should go about getting them too me? Should they be put in a wooden box? On a pellet? etc? Should I have them posted from NY to Oz or would I be better off sending them to the West Coast, then shipped from there? Norma US Post? UPS? DHL? Some other service? Maybe look for someone with a container headed this way? As you can see I'm in a bit of a dilema.......... So thanks in advance guys, I need all the help I can get! (Yes especially if your a psych!!) Happy to pay, swap, send beer/women/anything....... Doc.
