We worked at an overseas shipping company at the time together. I helped him pack it.
The problem was, the guy he sold the hood to, returned the hood after taking a look at everything. Then did a really shoddy job repackaging. It looked like UPS shipped it after it came back. Also that guy denied payment via Paypal. It took 2 months for my buddy to get his payment from the shipping company that he went through. If he didn't he woulda been out quite a bit of money and a hood that would take a lot of work to fix.
Rather not risk it and on top of the hassle of getting these pieces shipped. In this day and age even shipping some small electronics get banged up enough to be useless via these shipping companies. Ever see the UPS video with the tv and the guy just chucks it over the fence without even ringing the doorbell?
