Please note that payment for these items cannot be made by PayPal because PayPal has not enabled South Africa to receive payments. Should you wish to purchase please PM me for specific details. Postage take from 3 - 5 weeks via Airmail. I know it sucks but that's the way it has to be done for now.

Thanks for your patience and I hope you enjoy.
