2 years ago I shipped an Alien Cowling in from Bobs Machine Shop in Florida, using Bax Global. It cost me $123.00 shipping with an additional 15.55 fuel surcharge and 10.00 security surcharge.

The cost of the cowling was $549.00....

Upon arrival in the UK I had to also pay 15.00 advance of duty fee, 8.76 Duty, and 58.35 vat. (those last three sums are pounds, I've lost me pound sign!!!!)
