Default KewlMetal Still Open?

Hi guys, just wanted to ask if Kewl Metal were still open or not?
I know they had a lot of customer service issues a while back so just want to check.

I went to their website and tried the contact us link and it was down. So was their Facebook page. Looked inactive.

I want to order these Light Brackets for Victory High-Ball... - $69.95

I went to get the postage quote and they are trying to charge $140US dollars to ship to me in the UK! The bloody things fit in a packet the size of a deck of playing cards!

Can anyone help with this?

For the most part, shipping fees are courier fees. When I've ordered things in the past I call to make the order and request they ship regular snail mail. Deliveries are usually only a few days longer but a whole lot cheaper. Some packages have been too large for the mail (exhaust) and it had to come courier. I also lessened the charges with those by completing the customs work myself for free rather than pay them $70 to simply fill out a form.

By the way an internet search indicates you should have your mailed item 3 - 7 days after it has been sent. It's not coming over on the QM2.

Sorry, no idea about the status of KewlMetal.

Not all those who wander are lost.
