Are there any mistakes?
 
I would appreciate your help.
By that time, if you would not want to go there yet, keep on doing this work until it will be ready to be sent to the customer.

Is this supposed to be one sentence or many phrases?

Messy and unclear sentence, but grammatically cant point out much wrong. It īs written as if spoken or looks like a direct translation. If you really want to keep it in that structure then ...
 
At that time, if you do not want to go there yet, keep on doing this work until it is ready to be sent to the customer.
 
It could be changed other ways but without the sentence before and after ... it īs tough to know your meaning and context.

For the moment, if you don īt want to go there yet, keep on doing this work until it īs ready to be sent to the customer.
I don īt know if that īs what you want or not?

notagoobertwindarryl_cameronladybird and ants, thank you for your responses !!!

Oh, I am sorry for misleading you. I didn īt want exactly that one(At that time, if you do not want to go there yet, keep on doing this work until it is ready to be sent to the customer.) But I would like to know how it will be grammatically correct  in a similar sentence. For example:
 
 By that time( or at that time?), (suppose by 5 o īclock but now it is only 3 ) if you.... not be able to ...or ....not be ready to say me your decision yet ( ... not be able to fall asleep yet(by 12 o īclock) etc), you can chew on it untill you can make a decision(or try to count up to 100 until you can get off to sleep).  
Please, fill in the blank and if there are any mistakes let me know.
