Integrating new functionality into existing javascript calculations on order form

saabStory asked
Last Modified: 2018-11-19
I've got a form that is used for ordering t-shirts. Different sizes, different prices, tax, total are all good. Up to now, we've only offered in-store pick up but now, they want to add home delivery for a small fee.

On the form, the delivery fees are initially hidden. If someone selects delivery, the delivery total fades in and shows $4. Click back on store pickup and delivery option fades out and the amount changes back to 0.

I need help with integrating that into the grand total calculation so that clicking on delivery adds $4 and clicking on store pickup removes it if the delivery option was selected or does nothing if it isn't. And do it in such a way that it works with the key-up events of the order fields.

I could really use some help with this as we're trying to get this launched before the holidays.  Many thanks in advance.

I've got a fiddle showing what it's currently doing - and the code below:
