From previous experience if you can get 12 you take anyone ready to go at that time. If you wait it is inevitable someone will buy something else and be out. There have been several that hit 12 someone doesn’t pay and withdraws at payment collection and you never get them off the ground.

Indeed, C&J GMTO model is very flawed. Twelve commitments for the exact same make up have proven to be extremely challenging.

I have been one of those individuals that just go and buy something else, and i am afraid that I might do it again if the wait goes beyond a couple a weeks.

There are terrific make ups out there that are easier to execute vs. this torturous waiting game with C&J.

Hey man, I know how it feels 😊 That Carmina Amaretto looks fabulous.

I have no issues for now waiting an extra couple of weeks, however, we need confirmation from 3 other folks, and the continued commitment from the other guys.

We'll probably need a new price quote from C&J. I expect the prior quote has expired based on my exchange with Pernilla a month back.

She quoted £900 less VAT £750 for Whiskey Dundee GMTO "if the order is complete and forwarded to the factory for production within the next 2 months and no changes are made to the pattern. Due to rising prices of the raw materials and exchange rates the price will be reviewed again if the order is placed after this time."

Alright, if it is the case that they review the prices up every two months, I think it would be fair to assume that the GII will be north of $1,000 shipped to the US.

@flylikeneagle, could you please reach out to Pernilla and confirm cost + shipping?

Thanks

Sure. I think price review frequency is temporary, driven by uncertainty resulting from Brexit

Yeah, UK's equanimity and pragmatism have been flushed down the toilet several times over. Boris Johnson is hinting that he might go rogue and not ask for a Brexit extension, so October 31st would do. It is like watching a Brazilian soap opera with my mother. </end of the rant>

Back to the regular MTO programming.
