    Today I get a message telling me that the plane does not will be up within two months and then another month to send it to me, that if you receive them AML, this happens to me with a store that is less than 300 km from my home in valencia , Spain is mind blowing that may occur.

    stay pending work is on time or not for the logical time to start it.
    I'll have to think about doing another
