Must check my files, but think it was about 160 eur(+vat I guess). The measurement for the freight was on the safe side, also weight was for 60 kg , actual little less.

Thats a briliant price in my opinion for a pallet and cargo. Overseas is a different story. Overseas pallets needs typically to be stackable(to have a good rate) and thats why it was not in my case an economical sollution.

At some later stage planning to buy a SR 5.4 from UK, wonder what that freight will be.....maybe need to drive it home?

Lemme put it this way mate. The original stringers fit and have lasted a long time. Without them to at least compare with you don't know if you've got it right when you make new ones. Besides, it's likely to cost rather more than you expect for new ones. Ally isn't cheap and you'll have to find the right grade too.

What he said ^^^^

You really REALLY don't want to get rid of the stringers. By the time you have bought the materials, worked out how to try and make them, and found they are not as good as the originals the cost of shipping will seem like a bargain.

Mart's suggestion of looking at a separate courier is a good one.

Cheers

Chris
