I've had a zillion parts and kits shipped to me from Catalina Direct, and none of them came with any installation instructions.
KNOW what the brokerage fees are going to be if you're not in the USA. I have paid up to 1/3 of the cost of the order--like $150--just for "brokerage". Whatever THAT is.
FYI... next time if you're shipping UPS ask about 'expedited shipping'. It's faster, more expensive but the last time I checked if you use it customs brokerage fees are included in the shipping charge. So in the end you end up saving $10-20 AND you get it in a few days or less.
