    Gday everyone, joined the club and picked up my kombi a week ago from the sunshine coast and drove it down to Wollongong over 2 days. It's a 77 model, sopru campmobile in pretty good condition. Been given the once over by Wayne at Wayne Penrose and is booked in for a blue slip in 2 weeks (he's a busy man looking after a lot kombi's down my way). He gave me a fright after checking the plate behind the driver's seat which identifies it as a transporter 2 seater and saying the dreaded words " you'll need an engineer for this", but then I showed him the plate behind the passengers side which identifies it correctly as a sopru and got a "no worries should pass with no problems". Should have rego by the end of the month and be back driving the bus.

    Welcome to the Kombi Club! :)

    Very interested to see how rego goes with a 2 seater compliance and whether NSW rego accepts the sopru conversion plate. Twice now, I’ve seen compliant registered interstate campers, requiring yet another engineers certificate in NSW to get rego. o_O

    Enjoy the ride..........;)

    G'day and welcome

    I will be interested in the result.
    I would be guessing the "no worries" refers to getting the engineers report

    Thanks for the welcome. Wayne does restorations as well as mechanical stuff so I'm pretty sure he'll be able to supply any engineers reports or he'll know someone kombi friendly who'll get it passed. I left there pretty confident that it can be done, like anything it'll just cost more!

    Cheers for the welcome all, will post more pictures of my kombi once I have it registered and pick up my personalised plates from RMS. Managed to get OKOMBI, only ones left with the word kombi in them.

    These are the photos I took on the trip home from the sunshine coast. Sorry about the first one being duplicated, couldn't get crap bucket to work and instead downloaded a photo editor to resize pictures then posted these.
