    Well done! Do you have a car that you can tow with? Hire a trailer and tow it home.

    Sorry for the late reply, teaching kids at home is such a joy ha ha. I don’t have a car to tow and with all the boarder crossing issues I will just get it towed. $1300 buck in case you were wondering :eek:.

    Thanks Barry, I will have a better idea of what I’m doing once I get it in the garage. Mechanically, will get that sorted first, Dad has put his hand up to help, he’s an ex panel beater and spray painter and was keen for project :eek:.

    I don’t drink wine, but once I told my wife I had bought it she hit the bottle hard...:oops:

    Get some photos through soon!

    jon :)

    hah ha!!!

    only word of advice I can give is make sure that pop top is strapped down before shipping.

    I had a tin top bay shipped Brisbane to Sydney by CEVA and couldn’t have been happier.

    someone used them the other day and the roof blew off in transit and they said “bad luck”

    Looks like there should be some pleasant surprises.
    As in , positive.
    Looks a pretty cool fire extinguisher quickly.
    Fingers crossed for a scrub, replace plastics, fuel lines etc.

    Wonder if you will find the remains of a Blazecut system?
