get the shop to send it to you buy ups .they give you a tracking number and you can follow where its at
i've had a few boat props sent over from the states they weigh about 3kg or so and cost around $60 post to get here .
the only downside is if your parts are worth more than a $1000 you will have to pay stamp duty or someting (can't remember exactly what tax they called it)to customs .
i reckon it would be worthwhile ringing customs to double check
jake
forgot to mention it usualy takes 2 to 3 weeks
