Man I’m so jealous I’m really craving an Inde kit. The cost is actually not that bad. I did get a price quote for shipping to mexico last week. Amazing customer service btw. Total for a wafarer maple kit including import taxes and shipping was like $1815.I realize that the OP is in Mexico, but you mentioned a budget of about $1500. That’s what a Wafarer kit from INDe would cost. There was also a maple kit on the INDe site for $1250. They also sell single drums, if that would make the shipping hassles worthwhile.
Just a suggestion. (Waiting for my INDe kit to be built and delivered, hence my enthusiastic tail-wagging.)
