That's good to know... I just got out of a meeting at work so I'll try and call FedEx now to see why I was charged this extra $5 advancement fee. Thanks fellas.

I just spoke with FedEx who told me that the $25 was the fee that U.S. Customs charged me on the S/C, therefore because I told them that the FedEx agent that spoke to me back in April told me that no customs charges were going to be charged to me, the lady I spoke with went ahead and canceled the $25 plus $5 fees so I owe nothing now.

Haha! I was very polite with the lady I was speaking with... maybe that helped?
I got lucky I guess.

ok, who is using the new pulley system? Does the belt come into contact with itself between the two pulleys?
