You got two Crickets, didn't you? Have fun torching this weekend!!!
It is possible that they lost it, (I dont think they are verry smart there at costums ) but I 'm not sure there was no pocket for an invoice or in the pocket on top was just the shipping info (also with the value but that's not enough for costums)
GTT faxed me the invoice immediatly when I asked them.

Costums charges about 21% (about 70-80$) of taxes and the rest are just costs from them and from the deliverycompany.
It's not fair but you just pay. If you are lucky your package passes costums without any extra costs. You just never know here

indeed I got 2 but 1 is for a friend.

I installled the cricket yesterday evening and it was just great.
I had to run to keep up with the glass
