Safety Device NAS D90 roof racks return (part 5, final chapter)

The container with the racks in it has landed in the US and is now just awaiting standard Customs inspection. Hopefully it will clear in the next couple of days and then arrive via truck at ECR.
As soon as it arrives we will begin checking and shipping out the racks!
Won't be long now.

Once we get a crate on site then we will be able to start getting shipping quotes. Holly will work on that to find a good rate with a reliable carrier. That aspect of this will be up to her.
We will be doing a web page for step by step installation as well.

There may be 3 avialable. I should know more in a few days.
Please email me as I hate sounding like a sales pitch on the forum.

Issue is that they have to be made in batch lots of 25 or 50.
So it will take some time to build up enough demand.

Ah ha, I see, It looked like the 25 you ordered flew of the shelf. Yes?

Have you guys bothered to read the first four threads? Mike has explained this numerous times.

"spicy" I like that.

I bet everyone getting a new rack can't wait! Very cool.

As I look at my slightly rusting rack, I sorta wish that I had ordered a new one. I should be on the next list of 25, if there is one again. One day.

Awesome.

I have no idea how I am going to get my rack home, though.

Steve, sell me the rusty one and buy a new one from Mike. I want to galvanize one so your rusty one would be perfect.

Not if I steal it off the truck first!

I promise this will be my last post on the subject, but here are images of one of the new SD racks installed.
We will start shipping racks this week. Holly will be in touch with those who have purchased them.
Thanks all!

Sounds like I need to tie up the attack corgi outside the house in anticipation of some low-down dirty, time-consuming thievery.

However, Mike, if you somehow start contemplating another purchase of 25 racks at some point down the road (next week, next year, 2013, etc.), I am in for one. And then I can toss my current rack to Ron. Or have it stolen by Tyler.
