So I know this sounds retarded, but do I just go buy a money order at my bank and tell them it is going to Geoff at colt cams in Canada? Do they give me something to send in the mail to him so he gets the $.

I have never used money order before, and I am just trying to double check since it will be a $500 piece of paper basically.

Bank will issue you certified check, is basically a check that has the funds set aside for payment when issued to you.
Post offices issue money orders, which you pay for at the counter.
Both are physical pieces of "paper" which you would need to send to Geoff so he can be paid.

A SUPER BIG THANKS to KaedenKy and SuperSquid for helping out the folks who needed cores. It takes a lot of effort from people like this -who go out of their way -on their own time to pack-n-ship for those who can't. Kudos [/QUOTE]

Big kudos, very grateful for your help !!

The very best place to get an international money order is at your local post office. They are a couple of bucks and all you do is fill out the appropriate info and then tear off the part you keep for your records. Then mail it to Colt (AKA Geoff). The money order is insured through USPS -and so if something happens to it or it never makes it to Canada -you can get your money back. But USPS international Money orders are the most commonly accepted international money order. Nearly any foreign receiver will accept them.

By the way -I finally found a set of cams in the junk yard in a Millenia. Although it is a bit late now I think. I am sorry I couldn't get the set earlier. I never found the set that I thought I had.

Several people contacted me after the fact to ask if they could get in on the BB and I asked Geoff if 1 March was a solid deadline and he said it was rock solid. He also indicated that a few people from other websites had contacted him asking about a BB. He then told me that he might do one more in a couple of months since there was still quite a bit of interest.

So I will ask Damon about another short notice BB.

I called Colt yesterday and they are currently unpacking, sorting, and drawing up invoices.

If you have any details to sort out with your return shipping or payment, now is the time.

They should have my money order already along with shipping info. I emailed them and put a note in the money order envelope.

When I spoke to Geoff 3-4 weeks ago, he said that its a possibility of another one if there is enough interest and its near his "down time" and not at the beginning of race season like we're basically doing now.

I spoke with him yesterday and he had everything for me boxed up and ready to be shipped. I simply asked him to e-mail me the tracking number but I'll update the thread so we know where we all are.
