    AH yes... the hippy Kombi shall be added to the list so as that Kombi races can be had! :D

    I thought we were leaving the twisting CD with you? :eek: Ah well I guess I can get some twisty songs together all the same!

    Clown mask... yes can do... blue tack... hmmmmm.... that suggestion makes me nervous... not sure if I can do tarps either. :D

    schmo, judging by that list, it might be easier to just pack a complete second engine!!

    Don't forget some sort of portable sitting device, or your feet will be very tired by the end of the weekend!

    Nah... I jusyt figure it is probably easier to buy foodstuffs in Canberra as needed rather than lug it around in the van on the way.

    As for deoderant and phone charger, I keep both in the Kombi anywho. :D

    Hempy... good call on the portable sitting device! I would surely have overlooked that otherwise, which would have sucked! :eek:

    And the beret... It is funny, however it isnt speciffically for funny hat night... I wear it most of the time. I have something much funnier for funny hat night! :D

    And Tom... I'll be sure to produce a spanner at a random moment during the meet, mark my words!Well look on the bright side, at least I have em on hand... so if ya break down in Canberra all is good.... anywhere else then ya stuffed but hey, we won't talk about that! :D

    OK then Schmo, don't forget all your kitchen stuff:

    saucepans, cups, dishwashing up liquid, tea towel, lighter to light the cooker, BOTTLE OPENER & beercan holder.

    That's if you don't already keep them in the van. Happy travels, I should be packing now. 26 hours and counting!

    Don't forget to bring a dish of something to share for Friday night dinner. We will put everything together as a big "get together" feast :)

    Hey schmo, any chance of you throwing in an extra fuel filter i've you've got one. I've been trying to source one since the weekend, and with little faith in my mechanic at the moment. All the places I have looked (read: 3!) have not been able to provide me with a part number or any sort of details for what I need to get.
    HELP!!!

    Hmmmm... ya prolly wont be here to read this Hempy as ya no doubt are on ya way to Canberra already but... not sure if I have an EFI one here. I do have a glass tubular filter spare in the van but noit sure if it is the correct type for injection. It is better than none or a buggered one I guess all the same lol.

    I'll see what I can dig up anyway :D

    Cheers!
