    why 10 days covid delays?
    just ring around and find another who can do it soon, use to call up a day or two before

    Re: Aluminium T Top Roof

    Its a whole new process for homemade new trailers i need to take the trailer into the blue slip mechanic with all receipts, weigh bridge ticket, and pictures of the trailer need to be emailed to the mechanic, than its a 10 day process for rms than they'll allocate a vin and stamp the trailer and attach a builders plate

    I called around 10 places off the rms list that state they do light vehicle unregistered inspections they all said no to a aluminium boat trailer i was getting quiet pissed off as its missleading that they can chose to do a car but not a trailer when they state "all light vehicles"

    Lol yeah i can reverse pretty good and spot on but i was doing a left hand reverse turn with a big tractor in my blind spot so i couldnt see my driveway plus my car and trailer combo are longer than the 3 car lanes across my road much harder than a boat ramp we have a gutter either side of the driveway too so i needed to be spot on

    Eventful day for you
    burnouts getting the boat off
    Burnouts backing the trailer back up the driveway
    A empty trailer that will be 1000kg heavier with a boat on it
    buggering your transmission and wondering why a car with several hundred thousand kms on it is buggered after doing burnouts

    then the police turning up over a lost package that went to a adress where a nutter calls the police because a package turns up to the wrong address

    Might need a nap after a few days of such entertainment


    id be getting rid of the v8 and with what you have saved a bf falcon 6 wagon will tow your boat. They have a 2300kg towing capacity and the car will have around 150,000 km
    parts and service are cheap

    had a bf series 3 wagon and a xr6 sedan all towed my cruisecraft easy and didnít chew the juice when not towing

    I've chosen to keep the ford LTD its an easy fix for my self but a looooong wait on parts which i cant wait for so it has to get repaired by a shop

    I found this ford ute turbo diesel 03 a bit over budget and not sure if my mum could get in it, just seen someones bill fir diesel about $45 for 30 litres geez im getting $25 for 30 litres of lpg quiet the saving

    Trayback utes aren't great tow vehicles and that one is limited to 1800kg so no good for your boat anyway.

    Economy varies between fuel types because they have different energy densities. The energy density of diesel is about 1.5x that of LPG, so you'd expect to use 45L of LPG to go as far as 30L of diesel (assuming engines perfectly tuned and all else being equal). So LPG ends up being slightly cheaper on your numbers ($37.50 vs $45) but has the disadvantages of reduced range for given fuel volume and weight + loss of space due to LPG tank if not factory fitted underfloor.

    Its hard to find a good tow vehicle that my 5 foot tall mum can get into she can only just get into a xtrail, all that were coming up caotivas, couriers, the rare hilux, rodeos just all shit boxes because this corona virus has pushed up all prices
