Default ACF50 where to get in Ireland?

Hi, have been trying to buy ACF50 from the UK and both times Irish Customs sent it back because it was coming in air mail and was in Aerosol.

So was thinking there must be someone in Ireland selling the stuff. Last time I went looking in Ireland there was one shop but had no stock? Anyone bought any recently?

Dont know the answer to you question but I often buy Aerosols from the UK. You need to ask the seller to send it by "Surface Mail". If they don't mention anything it will, by default go airmail so they need to specify surface mail.

17.50 for a large tin in Bikeworld.When I use to get it from the UK it would take about 4-5 weeks to come because it could'nt be sent by air.

That's a bit shit of a price, although unlike some it doesn't fuck up paint too much. I have a nearly empty 2yr can for one pack of rancheros no can or tyre kickers

customs don't give a fcuk about aerosol's by air, it has nothing to do with them whatsoever - someone telling you some porkies.

Aye, customs would not have been involved.
Aerosols are classed as hazardous goods and must be shipped as such using the correct packaging and documentation. This makes the cost of shipping prohibitive for such a low cost item.

Britney does have it though

place out in santry sells it, do all service bits for bikes as well, plugs,filters,oil, forks seals etc...
When you are coming from Raheny going into santry you go left at the t-junction after the big roundabout and then take the 1st left immediately after that and it's a tiny shop down the end of the road

ACF50 doesn't have as nice a smell as some products.

Default ACF50, where to get it in Cork ?

Enough time has passed for the ACF50 to be more widely stocked.

Lee Motorcycles show it on their website, but ain't bold enough to give a price on it.

Anyone know where else ACF50 can be found and purchased for a reasonable price in Co.Cork ?
