I thought the seller was trying to cheat me until I went to the UK Postal Service's site and checked rates myself. They are MUCH higher than us for Int'l.

A finished CF fairing- especially a full one- will need a load of careful packaging for transatlantic shipping, which adds up to a big box. Every carrier I've dealt with deals in what they call "volumetric weight"- that is, if the parcel's big but light, they charge you by size. Still expensive though, I think. The company name implies they're in the highlands somewhere- it costs more to ship goods to the highlands, so logically it'd cost more for them to ship
Also, you're paying in part for the still relatively weak dollar vs pound exhange rate.... You don't have the buying poiwer you used to. Not as bad as it was a year ago though.
Got any pics of that fairing?
