    A word of caution about PacParts.

    I ordered the adapters to use Zulu bands on my GW-2500b & decided to get a couple sets of screws to justify the shipping cost. Well I didn't notice that the screws were not in stock & that was not indicated on the shopping cart. I guess I checked the partial ship box & USPS express shipping too. Got the adapters in in a few days $8.95 S/H, great service, & saw that the screws were back ordered. Got those today & discovered that they charged $8.95 shipping for the screws. When I called they said that it was obvious during the order process that the parts were not in stock & shipping would be charged $8.95 S/H again. OK, I give them that, but I would like to have been given the option to choose a cheaper shipping method for the back order, or a chance to cancel the items. They should also show at checkout & on my invoice that the items were not in stock. The only time this info appears is when you add it to your cart & that "not in stock" info is at the top of the page.
    Just be careful when ordering if you don't want to pay $17.90 to ship $10 in parts.

    Cheers,
    kev
    BTW my GW 2500 is looking sharp!

    I never noticed than the receipt doesn't state backordered, luckily I always choose that everything be shipped together, thanks for the heads up.

    To Finland the shipping is $36.24. You are lucky if you can get the parts so cheap :).

    Last time I posted a picture, it displayed huge! I can't seem to reduce the size. This last attempt is 89.3KB & the smallest size Photoshop will export. Regardless of what size the file is, the image here is too big. Don't know what has changed 'cause I used to be able to post reasonable sized pics???? Now that I think about it, those other shots may have been posted via Photobucket & the huge one was uploaded from my PC. Don't understand the difference.
    Any tips are appreciated.

    I ALWAYS request them to ship everything "all together" in one shipment when everything comes in stock in order to save on the shipping charges. This lessens the cost of shipping.

    Hi Kev,
    usually when I post an "img" file from photobucket it automatically reduces and gives everyone the opportunity to see the larger image if they desire (by clicking a little box above the image).
    Maybe someone more knowledgeable will chime in.
    Best regards,
    Chris

    Thanks, PhotoBucket must be the difference. The last attempt was to upload from my PC. I will try PhotoBucket later.
