\"Thanks for the explanation and photo,I am satisfied with your firm asking price and I really appreciate your honesty, that is what i really need most as I wont be able to come for inspection as am at work ,just want to buy the it as a surprise package for my son to show my appreciation in my absentia and believe he will really enjoy it.I would have loved to inspect or have Anthony(My son) inspect but i will be away from home for a few months more which makes inspection impossible for me and I am making it a %100 surprise package for him and i dont want him to know about it until its delivered.

In regards the payment, I am happy to inform you that i have an upgraded paypal account (business merchant account) so i can make a direct deposit to your nominated bank account from my paypal account . Please advise me of the details so i can make the transfer ASAP, your bank details I will need are: name of your bank, name of account holder, bsb and account number and after the payment has been sorted out, I have a private courier that will come for the pick up and make a personal delivery to my son after the payment clears into your account .\"
