Nice to see you're organized and methodical (normal people talk for OCD ), so this looks like you're going to make a go of it despite borderline scam seller. Where is he from?

Throw in a bottle of AT-205 and drive for a hundred miles or so. For ten bucks, what've you got to lose (except less oil)?
