I will have a dig in my past records. 

If I do this it will work as follows.

- individual orders will be expressed as a percentage of total order and multiplied with what I get charged on my card by SME in Rands. 
Equally actual freight, clearing fees and VAT  will be calculated pro rata.   

So it will be done at cost but that also means I can't give fixed prices.  Thought I would place the order on Monday.

February 2017 I paid GBP24.00 per set. 

SA VAT to be added.

There will be a bit of freight and clearing fee, shared.

Right, should be here by now, what's the damage?

You should hurry, I'm starting to dip into my slush fund.

Hi Sten

Get the real thing or sell the arms as they are.  I suspect your buyers will know what they are buying, a kluge repair will imo devalue them more than selling a mint arm that needs new rubbers. 

How many sets would you need?
I don't really have any to spare but may actually need to order more.  Maybe we can do a small SME spares group buy. 
Anyone else need any small bits?

I could probably do with a few sets of coupling rubbers ( perhaps 4 ) - depending on cost .
