Merry Xmas All, well still waiting for customs to release my parcel containing the plans. Took 6 days to get here by Fedex and so far 14 days and counting to get it cleared . Seems our super efficent customs service here in zimbabwe has succumbed to xmas fever!!!!!!!!

Hi Gary, yes you are correct supplies coming up from South Africa.Once I have the plans I will probably make a 1 off order for supplies from the factory for items not available in South Africa. I hope this will not be as challanging as getting the plans. Fedex are so frustrated they offered to give me all the doc's and I try get the parcel myself, told them if you guys cant get my parcel for me WHAT chance if any do I have of getting it quicker, so we wait and wait in hope.

I hope your aluminum has a faster clearance. I assume most of your supplies will come from South Africa.
I stayed with a friend in Harare named Peter Wright almost 50 years ago whose father was a vetinarian. It wasn't Harare then, of course.
