Hi Sarah,

Image

We'll be using the one on the left which is for a 1987 4 cylinder 5 speed.
My Wife and I do not have an extra cross member for a 1987 3 cylinder automatic.

If you are looking for the 1987 3 cylinder 5 speed, it is like the black one on the right.

For comparison, a 1987 Turbo Sprint 5 speed cross member and 2 transmission dampeners weigh 14 pounds.
You can get a rough estimate of shipping costs using the 92262 zip code.

Let us know if you are interested in the black one.


Welcome to Teamswift.

No problem.
For a shipping quote (my Wife always asks, "Are they going to pick it up?") you just put your details in here:
http://postcalc.usps.gov/
This is an International web site, so the question comes up all the time.
We've purchased items from all over the world for our cars.
Let us know how much it costs to mail it to you.

Thanks again

How does $50 sound?
We will weigh the actual part and present it to our Postal Clerk and get an actual price.
It will hopefully be much less than the quote you received.
This is for a 5 speed and not an automatic, correct?

Hi Sarah,

You will find that Teamswift is a very nice place.
My Wife is off work today, and we'll go to the Post Office with that part
and see if we can whittle down that
$94.50 postage so that the total price will not exceed the
USA national budget.

It seems I've read that WHOLE TRANSMISSIONS are sent for less.

Weather is rainy currently, so expect a few showers back East.

We will give you an updated total as soon as possible.

Best regards,

Phil

We used Postal Code NS B35S 1A2 in our estimate at the Post Office this morning.
Your total price will be less than $100(part plus postage), the exact amount to be determined once packaging is applied.

Teamswift has a fairly large section:
viewforum.php?f=18
You can check and see how people feel about their dealings with members.


Safe to continue?

For privacy's sake, you and I will have a brief exchange of personal information using the 'pm' button below.
The Moderators keep a close eye on any 'funny stuff', but in essence, you'll click on the PM button, and then we will communicate our addresses and means of payment.

As an additional update, the part is ready to wrap (clean) and is on the left:
Image

If you were an 'old timer', the part and payment might cross in the mail.
The younger crowd is using paypal.

Any time you wish to communicate with another member, perhaps because of something written, there is a 'pm' button below their statement.
Sometimes, to keep things 'above board', we stick to the main forum.

Because your individual location is 'sensitive', it is best you attempt to send me a PM.
I will respond, and we will make final arrangements for mailing and payment.
If for any reason you cannot navigate the PM system, return to this thread.

Initially, the buyer will wait for the payment, and then mail the package.
The system seems to work quite well.

Best regards.

PM with address received, and crossmember sent this morning.

You should look for a package with the name 'Sarah Forsa' c/o ....
and you (or anyone else) can track it using this number:
CP 811 460 574 US
(The Post Office will not divulge your address, but will mention if/when the package is delivered.)

It was sent as a 'gift' with a value of $10 so that it probably won't be a Customs issue.

The total, including shipping was under $90, and the exact amount is in a PM sent today.

Keep us apprised of your parcel, and whether it arrives in decent shape or not.

Your need for a crossmember got us motivated to install one in our little project car.
We have a little thread going and add to it once in a while.
Here is the link:
viewtopic.php?f=14&t=35662

We hope your weather will be clean, clear, and crisp.

Best regards and hope this helps.
