January 2018 Catch up?

Post by Shipper 01 » Tue Nov 28, 2017 10:38 pm

Hey guys,

Many months/years and no drives. Should we catch up in early 2018 for a brunch?

Let me know your thoughts.

I'm near the end of my massive engine build. Back together December but then need to await bench dyno. Awaiting one seal caught in customs. Pip Barker ordered under USD$1000 but when the parts landed the exchange rate had dropped and he was over the Customs threshold. So the joys of 10% GST and up to 30% tax. My one last seal is in that package.

Will be great to take a late Jan early Feb drive.

Hope you are all well.

Josh

Hi Josh,

I'm keen. The Gosford Museum idea worth revisiting?

That would do nicely. I'm so close with my car. Feb drive would be do-able with a possible late Jan.

I'm just awaiting one seal caught in a Pelican Parts purchase held in customs. I'll put the kids seat in for my 4 year old and then it's time for a year of lovely drives.

I might also head to Bathurst and have a beer and steak with Trev. He has got to know some good roads around there.

hey Josh.

its probably a safer bet to schedule a drive when your car is ready, as you dont want to put the mozz on yourself LOL.

When the car is ready ill personally come down to Syd from Melbourne to go on this long awaited 6 series tour.

Hi Josh

Bathurst would be nice or maybe Mittagong and some of the surrounding roads. Has your beast got a/c?

How much do they clip you to get a small part through customs?

Mr E the beast does not have a/c. This is on the list.

Any parts with a combined value inclusive of postage over $1k are hit with GST and an import duty of 20% to 30%.

Hi - a drive early in 2018 would be great. Haven't been on a decent drive in ages.
