I got my kit home yesterday! After travelling across the Atlantic on the OOCL California my container was offloaded in New York. From there, my crate was scanned in customs and then made its way to OST Shipping in Baltimore. I rented a uhaul and picked it up yesterday. I used IAN International to get through customs and I have to give a nod to my agent there, Jessica. Everything was very smooth.
My crate was in good condition when I got it and everything looked packed well. As far as I can tell nothing was damaged in shipping which is a big relief. Now, on to the pictures!
There are a lot more pictures here
of the unpacking (scroll to the right). I've included some highlights below.
I got the garage all cleaned up and ready to go. It's not the largest in the world. In fact, it's pretty small. But it will work.
Here's my truck parked next to and OST rig.
Get in there!
Home at last
The first peak through the plastic is a good one.
Pulling the crate apart
Time to unpack
Seats, nosecone and interior tunnel trim
The worst thing is the packing tape leaves crazy residue. Nothing a bit of goo gone can't take care of.
Lots of parts
And we're in!
